Millions of Americans are caught off-guard every year by floods. For
the lucky ones, the floods only invade their basements or part of the
first floor of their homes. For the not so lucky ones, their homes
are almost entirely buried underwater.
Floods are completely unpredictable too given that nature will
redirect water in ways that aren’t always predicted by flood plain
maps. If your local weatherman says there is a good possibility of
flash flooding on the way, what will you do? Water
diversion is a good option, and with the
latest products for water diversion, it is easier than ever before.
The Water Diversion Kit
You could spend hours creating and stacking sandbags but the problem
there is that you probably won’t have hours to prepare. Sandbags are
solid, but enough fast-moving water can also shove them over and
break through the barrier. You have no idea what kind of flood or how
powerful it might become when you do have some warning. Hence, you
should have a kit that helps you set up fast and divert water away
from critical entry points.
This kit includes a tough durable barrier that adheres to the base of
your doorway and is secured by pouches that inflate themselves when
exposed to water. They become very heavy and prevent the water from
breaking through. The more water hits that barrier, the heavier the
“sand” bags become. Water is then moved away from the door
by channels along the edges of the pouches/”sand” bags.
