Can you drive over these?
Asked by: SkeeterB767
They should only be driven over when not activated or partially activated. Once full- it could cause them to burst.

We have erosion issues on our gravel driveway. Would these work to divert the water off to the side and not continue down the driveway? Thanks.
Asked by: SkeeterB767
Yes- they can be used to control water flow & divert off to side. Do not drive over when fully activated- so drag them out of the way as needed. They are light & can move or blow out of position until activated- so a rock or brick to secure them in place may be needed.

6 in. x 17 ft. Expanding Barrier is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it. Basement flooding was isolated to the waters entry point which I then removed and continued to control with a 1/4hp Mastercraft submersible utility pump. Took less than 30 minutes to get the situation under control. I actually used extra Quick Dam barriers to absorb remaining puddles and excess water left outside the barrier. Literally just unfolded it, threw it in the puddle and walked away. The fact they are reusable is fantastic because I now have an incredible flood kit that every household should keep for emergencies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not keep water out We had an issue with water flooding into the garage during strong rain storms. Originally, we'd planned to use sandbags before I came across this product. We bought several to place around two sides where water was intruding. On one side, water seeped through and pooled on both sides of barrier. We added another 17 foot length on top of the first, and this also did not keep the water out. It seems this product might be useful for redirecting a stream of flowing water; however, it is not effective for keeping intrusion out. Water seeps through.

I laid it just outside the door and when the next heavy rain came....not a drop of water got in. This product is outstanding!!!

It works just great but I was surprised to see some of the white crystals leaking out of the dam material as it initially absorbed the water. It shows up where the small part joins together with the bigger part. You can see a thin line of white crystals that makes one think that there is a problem. However if you read the bag it came in you can see that this is quite normal and of little concern. The only other thing is the fact that it can take two to three months for it to completely dry out so one can put it away. This may be agreeable in flood zones where the water eventually goes away but here in Washington State that can be a problem since the dry season usually lasts two to three months before the Washington rainy season returns and I am using mine to redirect the rain water that comes down the hill. Still it works as advertised for stopping water.

I bought the expanding flood barriers instead of having to deal with sand bags and fortunately have not needed them yet and I hope that I will never need them. But I am happy to know that I have a good way to keep water out of our garage if we had the kind of torrential rains that some people have experienced. I like to be prepared and not resort to panic at the last minute and I liked what the previous reviewers said about this product.
