You are ultimately responsible for your own property!

Please Note:

  • Each Floodsax® is approximately 30cm (12 inches) wide
  • Each layer of Floodsax® will keep approximately 20 cm (8 inches) of water out

Count up all of the following:

  • Single External Doors – 1 x Door Pack or 5 x 20 Litre. 3 on the outside and 2 on the inside
  • Double External Doors e.g. patio – 2 x Door Pack or 10 x 20 Litre
  • Air Bricks – 2 x 20 Litre. Please remember old house have lower air bricks, newer house have higher and most house have a minimum of 2 air bricks
  • Downstairs Toilets – 1 x 15 Litre or 1 x 20 Litre
  • Garage doors – Single – Typically 10 x 20 Litre (3 metre width)
  • Garage doors – Double – Typically 20 x 20 litre (6 metre width)

For open spaces, i.e. a flood barrier to divert water running past your property as shown on the video – you also need to think about how deep might the water rise?

Things to think about – plan ahead – don’t leave it until it’s too late – remember prevention is better than cure

  • Water can come in not only through doors and windows
  • Air bricks on the outside of the property – do you know where they are?
  • Downstairs toilets – a Floodsax® jammed in the toilet will prevent sewerage being backed up in to your home
  • It is recommended that you make provision to have enough Floodsax to put inside behind doors to soak up any seepage
