Sandless sandbags are now being used by an increasing number of specialist companies who need to shift large amounts of water … or hold it back.

Power pumps are needed to clear water out of flooded buildings or remove it from water courses for maintenance work.

FloodSax Sales Director Richard Nikolic went to the Pump Centre conference in Telford and discovered just how widely FloodSax sandless sandbags are used in the industry.

He said: “We discovered there is a very real need for our product in the pumping industry. Some of our current clients do use FloodSax to form bunds to control liquid flows and use pumps to clear the liquids. Others use FloodSax to create small dams to reduce the flows of liquids so they can work in water courses and place pumps behind the small dams to stop water build up behind them.” 

The Pump Centre is a membership organisation that provides its members with a range of services associated with pumps, pumping systems and related plant and equipment. 

Many homes and businesses now have FloodSax Sandless sandbags so they are prepared for flooding.

FloodSax are transformed from being as light as a pillowcase to being more effective than traditional sandbags in just three minutes and are ideal at soaking up spills as well as stopping running water.

Around 2.5 million have now been sold worldwide.
