We encourage you to get an early supply of sandbags at your local hardware, landscaping or home improvement stores now before supplies are exhausted.

Please follow important safety guidelines and consider hiring a licensed contractor for any large or special needs.

The humble sandbag can have many uses in life, but the majority of people associate sandbags (which are basically, hessian or polypropylene sacks that have been filled with sand) with flood protection.

These items are sacks that are similar to sandbags except that they contain a patented polymer interior that is super-absorbent. If you need to activate aqua sacks, all you need to do is submerge them in water for around five minutes until they are full. They are lighter than sandbags and easier to handle.
