The HydroSack®️ is the new, modern method to create a highly effective barrier to the threat of floodwater for domestic and commercial properties. Since it’s launch in 2012, it has fast become the the Europe’s best selling sandless sandbag for domestic & commercial flood protection.
The HydroSack®️ is a water-reactive temporary flood barrier for low-level flooding, constructed from a non-woven outer material with a super absorbent core. Before use, the HydroSack®️weighs less than 0.5kg, but once the HydroSack®️ comes into contact with water (absorption capacity up to ~20 litres), it can then be used to defend against, and redirect floodwater.
The HydroSack’s®️ handles allow minimal contact, and facilitate positioning of the barrier, making the HydroSack®️ an ideal replacement for the traditional sandbag in forming a flood protection barrier. The HydroSack®️ is safe and easy to dispose of; and the super-absorbent polymer and pulp are both eco-friendly. After use, the contents can be dispersed into the ground, or alternatively, they are suitable for landfill or incineration. The HydroSack®️ is now being widely used by Fire & Rescue Services UK-wide in fire hydrant pit protection and maintenance, as well as for water redirection & pollution control.
