I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS
I LOVE your products! I don't know if you are the one to tell... but I LOVE your products. I bought it on a whim just before Hurricane Irene hit the coast of CT and a combination of your product, plastic and duct tape saved my building from flooding and I again used them during SuperStorm Sandy... Gearing up for what mother nature may send us this year.
Keeps Mud out of the Barn
We use HydraBarriers in the winter when the rains come to keep mud out of the bard and away from the horses. Just by putting HydraBarriers in the front of the doors on each side of the bard, we keep out 99% of the mud that used to run in during the storms. The horses stay cleaner, the barn floor isn't slippery anymore, and the hours I used to spend on clean up, now I spend riding my horses. This product is a hundred times better than old sandbags and everyone should use HydraBarriers.
I LOVE MY HYDRABARRIERS
I LOVE my HydraBarriers!!! I love the rain, always have. Unfortunately, the backyard patio in my home of the past five years was in such a way that when it rains, the patio area floods, and the water can get into the house. So, for the past four winters when it would rain instead of being warm and dry inside in front of the fire watching the rain, I was outside in a raincoat and galoshes with a broom, keeping the one, small patio drain free of leaves or anything else that the rain washed into the it. A larger drain was eventually built outside of the patio area, but the rain still ran to the small drain, flooding the patio. I started to DREAD the rain. I considered getting sandbags, but they were just not realistic for my situation, then I found HydraBarrier. I purchased the six footer in October, and placed it at a location that kept the rain from flooding the patio, directing it to run instead into the new, bigger drain. I'm on my third rainfall this season with absolutely NO flooding, just back to enjoying the rain. I REALLY love this HydraBarrier and am so glad I found it!
FOR POWER WASHING
I’m a painting contractor who started using HydraBarriers about a year ago and can honestly say they are a big part of increased customer satisfaction. When we paint a house we typically power wash the house first, to remove any dirt or other debris prior to painting. Often in the process of power washing, one of the workers would get careless around the doors of the house and would shoot streams of dirty water under the door and into the house. Many times, this dirty water would stain carpets, leading to unhappy customers as well as added expense for me, having to pay to get the carpets cleaned. Now, each of my workers carry a HydraBarrier in their trucks and are required to place a HydraBarrier in front of the door while power washing. HydraBarriers are so easy to use that it is not a burden on the workers and has led to happier customers.
Contains Melting Snow Pack
We use HydraBarriers to divert the runoff of a melting snow pack from coming in our laundry room. We live in an older house and the builder didn’t do a good job of planning when he added on the laundry room. Every year we would have problems in the spring when the snow melts and runoff would come in to our laundry room.
Before HydraBarriers, we would have to use a row of sandbags in front of the door to keep the water out. The sandbags were heavy and hard to move. Once in place we rarely moved them until all the snow had melted which is typically a few months. With HydraBarrier, all we do is get them out on warm days, when heavy melting occurs. They are ready in a minute and when the day is done we empty them and put them away. Instead of having sandbags outside the door all spring, we now put HydraBarriers out there only when we need them, probably 6 – 7 days per year!!

HydraBarrier Repair Instructions
Q – How do I use the HydraBarrier?
A – To use the HydraBarrier, simply fill with water, according to the guidelines given in the instructions.
Q – How much water can a HydraBarrier divert?
A – HydraBarriers sandbags for flooding are designed as a water diversion device and as such can divert endless streams of water. HydraBarrier Supreme can divert up to 12 inches of water, HydraBarrier Ultra can divert up to 6 inches of water, and HydraBarrier Standard can divert up to 4 inches of water. Tip: HydraBarriers are intended for moderate use and are sufficient for moderate rainfall or other sources of steady water streams that need to be diverted.
Q – Can multiple HydraBarriers be used together?
A – Yes, HydraBarriers were designed to work together to construct large barriers or sandbags for flooding. Simply place your flood bags end to end to increase the length of the barrier. For optimum performance on long barriers it is recommended to use HydraBarrier Links to securely connect HydraBarriers together.
Q – How do I store the HydraBarriers when I’m done?
A – Simply remove the filler cap and drain the water from the HydraBarrier and store in any convenient location. The HydraBarrier will be there waiting for the next time it is needed. Easier than sand tubes, just empty water!
Q – What are HydraBarriers made of?
A – HydraBarrier Standard and Ultra are made out of industrial strength vinyl and HydraBarrier Supreme is made out of Tarpaulin. These alternatives to sandbags for flooding are strong!
Q – How much does a HydraBarrier weigh?
A – Empty 6 ft Standard HydraBarriers are very light, weighing approximately 1 pound. Once filled with water a single HydraBarrier can weigh in excess of 75 lbs. 12 ft Standard HydraBarriers weigh approximately 3 lbs when empty and 24 ft Standard HydraBarriers weigh approximately 7 lbs when empty. Lighter than sand tubes and traditional sandbags!
Q – What other applications are HydraBarriers used for?
A – In addition to water diversion and flood control, HydraBarriers are commonly used as anchors to secure possessions in windy conditions. Easier to deploy than sand tubes, they are also an excellent solution for anchoring tarps or other covers from blowing away in windy conditions. HydraBarriers are also used for storing and transporting non-potable water as well as erosion control. Check out our HydraSorber if you are interested in a water absorber product.
