FloodSax sandless sandbags are so flexible we’ve now been able to compile a list of 30 ways they can help you … and the number just keeps on rising.

Although most people just think of traditional sandbags keeping floodwater out of their homes, FloodSax does that … and a whole lot more.

They are now used by homeowners and businesses worldwide to soak up leaks and spills inside … especially in those hard-to-reach places.

For instance they were deployed in a hospital in the USA after it suffered a major flood to prevent the water escaping from a corridor into side rooms and damaging high technology equipment.

A top showjumping event faced being cancelled after parts of the course became waterlogged … but the day was saved by our FloodSax partner in Belgium, Aquasorb, run by Adel Oueslati.

The Longines Spring Classic of Flanders is staged at Lummen in Belgium each year but it rained and rained which meant the organisers faced the nightmare of having to call it off.

With competitors and spectators travelling in from all over the world the cancellation would have cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. 

Adel strategically placed 260 FloodSax around the sodden course on the puddles on either side of the jumps and within 30 minutes they had soaked up all the water and the three-day event went ahead. 

So let’s think out of the box and see what other inventive ways we can think of to use FloodSax. Email us at andy@edslimited.co.uk, tweet @FloodSaxworld or visit our Facebook page.
