5' Flood Barrier-2 Pack is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKED GREAT Bought these to put in front of garage door where water would come in when heavy rain came.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Glad I Gave Them a Chance! I purchase 2 of the 5" flood barriers about a month ago hoping they would solve the problem of rain water and snow melt drainage seeping under my garage door and creating a small pond or puddles in the garage. To date, we have had only medium intensity rainfall since I installed them. So far, they have worked excellently. I place mine at the door without activating myself by wetting. Just today I could tell from some areas that have swollen a tad bit that water had indeed tried to seep under the door. I am very pleased. I plan to purchase 2 more. I also purchase 2 elephant water absorbers at the same time these were purchased. I think that these are more effective for heavier amounts of water drainage or seepage. Effective product for the reasonable price. I recommend! I've already recommended them to others in my village who are having a similar problem with water seepage.

Is this a one time use once it gets wet?

Sunlight affects it the most. If you want it to degrade quickly- cut the bags open & expose contents directly to sunlight. The inner polymer will start to degrade within a few days, complete degradation will vary, but estimate up to 4 weeks. Depends on environmental conditions. If you want to make them last, but dry out- keep them outdoors in a dry environment, in the shade. Depends on environmental conditions, humidity, but typically can take up from 2-4 months to dry completely- crunchy- but reactivates again later. General degradation- over time, they will generally degrade

can you drive over this repeatedly?

Asked by: justsamcoxnet14
Thank you for your question. If the Flood Barriers are flat they can be driven over. If they are partially activated- no problem, but the tires will create a path for water to flow through- so the gel needs to be “squished” back into position. If they are fully activated- then NO- as the gel needs to go somewhere & this could cause them to burst

reusable?

Are they reusable after they dry out and what is the warranty?

The video says they weigh 32 lbs when fully inflated. Is this for a 2' section? What are the weights of the longer sections? Also, if they're too heavy to lift are they durable enough to be dragged over pool deck pavers until they deflate? Thanks.

i'm looking for a low (1 inch high?) plastic or rubber flood berm/barrier to lay down by foundation to divert water. I don't really want/need something absorbent but more a physical barrier to channel water. do you have something like that?
