OK, so FloodSax sandless sandbags may not be the most exciting Christmas presents but they could just save you a fortune in the future.

For if they keep floodwater out of your home or business they will save you thousands of pounds in damage along with all the trauma, inconvenience and misery that entails.

In short, they fall spectacularly well into the Christmas gift genre marked ‘Practical’.

For FloodSax are also ideal at soaking up leaks and spills in hard-to-reach places such as under dripping water pipes in homes and businesses.

FloodSax managing director Richard Bailey said: “There may be more exciting Christmas presents around, we’ll grant you that. But if the time comes when you need to deploy the FloodSax they’ll be worth their weight in gold, so to speak.”

Sales director Richard Nikolic added: “Floods are known as ‘the thief who takes everything’ with compensation claims after a house has been flooded typically 37 times greater than the average house burglary.”

FloodSax are available online at http://www.floodsaxdirect.com and at branches of builders merchants Travis Perkins where they cost under £30 for a pack of five.
