Questions & Answers

is this reusable have a garage door that water leaks in

Asked by: Allen
Yes it is reusable, but do not try to drive over it when it has absorbed water and if in direct sunlight, will last less than a year before it starts to break down.

Reusable?

After the first rain, do these “dry out” and re-inflate during next rain? How many wet/dry cycles are these good for?
Asked by: Bob
Yes you can dry it and reuse it a couple of times but it takes awhile for it to dry and I only get one season out of each barrier

I have an outdoor stairwell to my basement. There is a storm door then a main door. Previously I had 2 feet of water in the stairwell which seeped in through the sides and bottom of the main door. Can I place this product in a U shape just along the perimeter of the door frame? Or should I buy multiples and stack them? Is there anything that would keep the product pushed up against the perimeter?
Asked by: Tony
You would need to stack them so they are higher than the expected water level. You will need to preactivate the bags prior to stacking and you will not need anything to keep them in place as long as they are stacked higher than the water. There is also a product , the Flood Gate which fits in the doorway to protect against flood water. It does not absorb anything, just blocks and provides protection up to 26 inches.

17 ft. Flood Barrier is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 218.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described. Great product! When heavy rain was forecast for our area we purchased these to place in front of our garage doors. We also purchased several standard bag sizes as well to block rising water. They are easy to store and lay where ever needed. As the water began to rise these bags began to expand and block water flow. They work very well in place of the heavy, dirty sand bags that only get one use! After use they are quite heavy but not sand bag heavy. After the storm we placed them in direct sun light on a hard surface for 3 days and they returned almost to purchase size and weight. We are able to keep 30+ of the used ones in a Rubbermaid storage box to keep dry until the next big storm and the box still has room for more! As the water rose we did stack more bags on top of the long barriers because they only block and divert roughly 2 inches of water. Nice to have these on hand for emergencies.

Only doing half the job, I bought this because of the size which is perfect for outside my patio but when I went to check it today after it arrived found out the inside material is coming out so only half of this product is protecting my patio the other half isn't doing the job. Now I have to buy a small piece to protect the other half of my patio. Very disappointed.

The product seems well made but for my use the water just runs underneath the dam - not helpful for me, I tired putting some dirt along the edge to try ad seal which improved function a bit but not entirely. I am using on asphalt - not dirt or smooth concrete - so maybe that’s why not working

The garage is at the bottom of a hill and the water collects at the garage door and seeps in when we have big storms like we have been getting. You can stack them as well, but we only need one to cover the the front of a 2 car garage.

The 17ft length has been especially helpful as it keeps any water from coming into our garage during heavy rain. Drying them out takes some time. We replace ours every few years.

I bought some a few months after moving in and this is why I bought more. It blocks and redirects the water so it isn't coming up against my house and entering my basement. Wonderful product.
