FloodSax sandless sandbags are more effective than traditional sandbags in stopping floodwater in its tracks and have proved themselves in action worldwide.
More than 2.5 million have now been sold worldwide and they are also highly effective at soaking up leaks and spills in hard to reach places inside homes and businesses.
FloodSax are transformed from being as light as a pillowcase to tough 'sandbags' in around three minutes.
To do that, all you need to do is add water and watch them miraculously expand.
The semi-porous inner liner within FloodSax contains a special gelling polymer which absorbs the water to become taut. Once the water is in there, it stays there and the bags act just like sandbags to keep floods at bay. They are designed so they mould into doorways to keep floodwater out.
Before they are activated FloodSax are incredibly lightweight, amazingly weighing just 7 ounces yet once expanded they are strong enough to stop a powerful torrent of water in its tracks.
They can be deployed outside as a barrier to prevent floodwater from getting into homes or business.
And they can be used inside to soak up leaks and spills in hard to reach places such as beneath faulty boilers, radiators and pipes.
They save in every sense of the word, especially the misery and frightening costs of flood damage,
