Overview

Quick Dam Flood Barriers contain a super absorbent powder that activates & swells when wet. Once activated (typically 5 minutes), the water is contained as a gel within the fabric, thus acting as a barrier. Gelled contents are not hazardous and nontoxic.

One of the key features of these flood barriers is their extended life of several weeks to months after being activated. The black non-woven durable fabric provides UV protection that prevents degradation of the inner absorbent, allowing the consumer to leave the flood bags in position for ongoing protection.

CAUTION: not for use with salt water

Common Questions:

How do you activate them?

Lay them in position and wait for the rain, spray with a hose, dunk them in a bucket of water, lay them in a puddle or place them in a water source like a stream.

Do I have to add water?

Depending on your situation, you may pre-activate them or let the weather activate them. Quick Dams can be placed in position and wait for water to arrive. If a current of water is expected, partially activating them is recommended so that they don’t float away. If building a retaining wall is desired, pre-soaking & stacking them is recommended.

How should I position Quick Dam Flood Barriers?

Flood Barriers contain a wedge to prevent them from rolling. When laying in position, be sure to place the “mini channel” away from flooding water. This will assure that as it grows, it acts as a wedge to secure in position. Lay and angle them to divert water away. Ideally, place Quick Dams outdoors in the path of problem water & divert it, before it becomes a problem. They can also be used to absorb & contain a leak or spill.

How long do Quick Dams last?

Un-activated: indefinite as long as kept dry, so store in their closed package until needed.

Activated: if left in position, they can last for 6-8 months.

Can I re-use them?

Yes, you can re-use them. Once activated, Quick Dams will remain active until the water evaporates, typically taking a several weeks for complete evaporation. If left in position, they will shrink while evaporating and grow when re-exposed to water.

They seem to shrink. Is that normal?

Yes, as the water evaporates, they will get smaller. If complete evaporation is desired, store Quick Dams in a dry environment. Over several weeks, Quick Dams will shrink & become crunchy. Once re-exposed to water, they will swell again.
