Sandbags for Flood Control

Flood Control Sandbags

poly sandbagWhen floods hit your area, sandbags can provide you with the strength and support you need to limit the amount of flood damage in your transport. These sandbags are a great option for use along banks, homes or businesses.

Sandbags are made using either a high UV poly or burlap material. These strong materials work to keep sand contained, while simultaneously controlling or limiting the flow of water.

These water control bags are incredibly light in weight, making them easy to transport quickly to needed areas. Once filled with sand, these flood control bags can be quickly placed or stacked around buildings, streets, or along banks. Bags are typically placed parallel to the flow of water, with the top end of the bag folded under. If you need something more durable, check out the Earth Bag Flood Wall that is easier to install and lasts longer than traditional sand bags.
