AquaDam Flood Control

Protecting Your Communities, Businesses, And Critical Infrastructure

As flood waters approach, you need a quick and effective solution to defend your property and redirect water away from valuable infrastructure. AquaDam® is a unique temporary protective solution that uses any source of available water to hold back and control flooding.

The speed and convenience of AquaDams for flood control allows homeowners and emergency responders to protect large areas from flood damage with minimal effort. More efficient and cost-effective, two laborers can install a 100ft AquaDam in 20 minutes, ten times faster than a standard sandbag berm and at only an estimated 25% of the cost.

It is estimated that most flood damage is caused by less than 12″ (300 mm) of water, making AquaDam® flood control dams an effective tool for your emergency response plan.

Why Use AquaDam® For Flood Control?

Affordable Flood Solution

AquaDams offer 25% or more savings over sandbags and can be cleaned and reused with proper handling.

Deploys Quickly and Easily

AquaDam® is up to ten times faster to install than sandbags and requires only two workers for proper installation, reducing cost and potential injury.

Protects the Environment

Single-use sandbags are often landfilled due to contamination by floodwaters. AquaDams can be deflated, re-used, and kept out of landfills, significantly reducing the impact on our environment.

Additional Features

  • Highly effective temporary flood prevention
  • Cost-effective compared to sandbags and other systems
  • Roll-resistant
  • Flexible barriers that can be joined for any length
  • Can be deployed with minimal labor
  • Can be cleaned and reused with proper handling
