Questions & Answers

can these be left as a permanent wall barrier? Also can they be stacked where water is already 4 ft (underwater)

Asked by: Ralphman
They can certainly be stacked both while dry as a barrier and in water that is already there. I'm not sure if they can be permanent or not, although we are using them by our frequently flooding barn as long as they last because they work so well. They have a 5-year "shelf-life."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive performance I got a small pack of five because we sometimes experience a minor leakage from one basement wall when it rains heavily. My intention was to wait until spring when rains come and see how these work. Lucky thing I got them when I did, since rising temperatures brought rain in JANUARY! As usual, we heard the sump pump working overtime from the kitchen, and went down to investigate. Sure enough, that small crack was seeping water. Although this is not a catastrophic leak, it is a nuisance. So, in a matter of seconds, I cut the package open with scissors and took out four floodsax--- enough to corral the mini flood along the path of the water's flow. They start off being about one-half inch thick. Within minutes these thin floodsax starting bulging and expanding from absorbing ALL that water! Just like in the videos on YouTube and the FloodSax website, these really DO work! This is one of those preparedness products that you want BEFORE something happens. My wife was so delighted with the performance, she bought some for her friend who has a much worse problem in her basement. They worked well for her too. I recall one year in my youth when our city experience a MAJOR devastating flood and I volunteered for several days packing real old-fashioned sandbags against that torrent. It was grueling heavy wet dirty work. I can easily see how these could save a person thousands in damage around a home, or save a municipality MILLIONS in damages and deployment costs. These are so lightweight and small, one truckload floodsax could easily replace ten or more truckloads of conventional sandbags. They are MUCH MUCH easier to move and place. As they absorb water, they conform to the space where they are packed so they leak less. The weight of the water itself is what holds them in place. Here's the kicker! They are reusable! Not only can you dry these out simply by laying them flat in the hot sun, they have antimicrobial properties which the manufacturer says last even after first use. So far, that appears to be true since our basement has zero mold growing on those bags even now, several weeks after I put them in place. If you have leaks or live in a potential flood zone, you really should check these out by visiting the FloodSax website. They have impressive videos demonstrating how they work and how easy they are to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! We have only used one of these bags outside of our goat barn, which tends to flood every spring and summer, no matter what we do. We put one of the bags at the side where we knew the water seeped through. It absorbed all of the water that had emerged from out recent melted snowstorm. The barn has stayed dry. We will be buying more of these because of their multi-use possibilities,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied with tjhis product The fact that this product is designed to always lie flat makes it superior over all other competitors. All of the fill is designed into sections that will always keep it in place. That allows you to stack it to construct a wall or use it on door ways or garage doors. It also works very well for spills and water heater breaks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for compact storage for "just in case" While I don't live in a place subject to major flooding (there are no major creeks, rivers, dams, etc. above me), my house is located on a hill below street level. My neighbor had leaves divert water and debris from the street down his driveway and into his garage during a heavy downpour a few years ago. Further, if you've ever seen a water main break, you know how those are capable of causing significant flooding on city streets. So the though has crossed my mind that I really should be prepared to put out sand bags on short notice should something like this happen to my driveway. However, actually storing sand and sandbags for something that could happen years in the future is not easy. Thus I was glad when I came across this product. This allows me to store enough bags to barricade both my garage doors and the front door to my house to keep several inches of water out on short notice, and I can store all of that (30 bags in my case) in a stack about 2' high. I do wish that these bags cost less, but compared to the cost of flood damage these are cheap (especially since most homeowners insurance doesn't cover flood damage). One downside to these bags is that I'm not clear on what to do with them once they've been used. The instructions that come with the bags are quite limited. The company's website has more information and an FAQ, but still nothing related to the draining and disposal of these bags after use. I tried calling their customer support: after waiting for a few minutes, I was required to leave a voice message (there wasn't an option to stay on hold), and they never got back to me, so their customer support didn't win any points with me.
