Chances are that if you have an air conditioning unit you’ll have an annoying leak which can quickly cause a health and safety hazard and costly water damage.
Air conditioning units are life-changers – imagine trying to sleep in 30℃ heat without one – but they also produce water which often does leak out.
A lot of the time it’s straight into tiles which can make them slippy or they can damage floors, furniture, fixtures and fittings.
But no matter how you try to position a tray beneath them, the water still seems to escape across the floor.
More and more people are now using FloodSax to soak up the air conditioning leaks and drips worldwide.
FloodSax are ultra-thin with a large surface area and incredibly flexible so can be popped right under a unit and wrapped around its legs if need be to catch every last drop.
You’ll probably only need one for a domestic air conditioning unit although they can also be used on a far larger scale as they were when a row of FloodSax were placed around a faulty air conditioning system on the roof of a radio station’s building which prevented water getting in and seeping through ceilings. If left unchecked, this would have caused a colossal amount of damage inside.
FloodSax come in handy packs of five that are vacuum-packed and are exceptionally space-saving to store.
They are multi-purpose so can be put in the hardest-to-reach places to soak up leaks, spills, drips and internal floods with the water being soaked up by the FloodSax’s super absorbent gelling polymer.
This can be beneath pipes, under sinks and below boilers and radiators – anywhere water can leak inside homes and businesses.
Yet immerse Floodsax fully in water and they will absorb around 20kg, transforming them into instant alternative ‘sandless’ sandbags in just 5 minutes or so. Their uniform shape means they can be built into temporary anti-flood barriers strong enough to keep out a torrent of floodwater.
There are many reasons air conditioning units leak but the main ones include air leaks with the air not passing through the vents as it should, a blocked or dirty aircon filter, a broken condensation pump, the condensation pump blocked by dust and dirt, a blocked or broken condenser coil, a water drain line clogged by debris or mould.
In short, anyone who has ever owned or used an air conditioning unit will know they are very prone to leaks so best be prepared so you can solve the problem day or night with FloodSax.
