Count on Reusable Sandless Sandbags
We’ve all seen communities that are threatened by flooding use sandbags to curb the flow of water and protect the structures in the area from flood damage. These bags must be filled by individuals and then moved into place, which can be a time-consuming, challenging task. The good news is FloodAvert offers solutions, such as sandless sandbags, to make this process even easier for communities throughout the United States. It’s our goal to provide the simple solutions communities, homeowners and business owners need to keep their structures safe from floodwaters.
How Long Do They Last?
Although we offer reusable sandless sandbags to individuals throughout the United States, they don’t have an infinite lifespan. In fact, it’s important to check them for damages after use and pay close attention to their condition, even if you don’t use them. In general, you can expect sandless sandbags to last about five years before you think about replacing them. However, they can last up to 10 years if you store them properly and take good care of them.
Does Size Matter?
The reusable sandless sandbags you choose should be large enough to handle all of your flooding needs. Some people only think about the size of the door when determining which size sandless sandbags they require. While this is certainly an important factor, it isn’t the only one. Knowing how high flood waters are likely to reach can help you determine the height of the flood prevention products you should use. After all, if the water reaches higher than your flood protection, the water can still enter your home, even if it isn’t as much as would otherwise enter.
Is It Saltwater Compliant?
Whether you live inland or on the coast, you’ll never have to worry about our FloodAvert sandbags deteriorating when exposed to saltwater. Our reusable sandbags are made of a tough exterior fabric that stands up against saltwater and freshwater intrusion. However, it is important to note that the polymer material inside that sandbag that absorbs and swells up with water must be activated with freshwater. Saltwater will not activate your FloodAvert bags.
