Testimonial / FloodSax Review on

We just received the testimonial/ review below on our FloodSax Sandless Sandbags on Home Depot .com and thought that many should see and understand the multipurpose capabilities of these flood sacks/ flood bags:

Here's the customer's FloodSax Review:

"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.

Testimonial on Sandless Sandbags on Home Depot .com 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."

FloodSax Saved More than $500,000 in Equipment

FloodSax Saved More than $500,000 in Equipment

“FloodSax really saved the day,” says CoGri Group Director Lynn Dare. Dare credits FloodSax for saving her firm more than $500,000 in equipment all within one year, as raging waters threatened the massive high-tech grinding machines CoGri relies upon to run their business. Fortunately, Dare was prepared with a supply of FloodSax. As waters rose, employees quickly deployed 30 FloodSax to protect half a million dollars worth of equipment as torrential floodwater poured around their facility.

Last year, traditional sandbags couldn’t prevent flood water getting into the site, and Dare lost four grinding machines, months of production time, and the time needed to file insurance claims when floodwater entered the CoGri production facilities, destroying four laser-powered concrete grinders. That’s when Dare knew she needed to find a better solution.

“FloodSax are absolutely brilliant. There was a raging torrent coming down the hill but three layers of 10 sacks held it back from our door. Last year we were flooded very badly and put in a $550,000 insurance claim as a result, but this time we’ve been able to function as normal.”
