When exposed to water the SAP crystals rapidly swell with absorbed water and expand to hundreds of times their size, in just 3-5 minutes, to the mass of a traditional sand filled flood control sand bag. Once engorged, the bags may be stacked, or, aligned to dam and divert flood water. But it gets even better, because Quick Dam flood bags are precisely designed for ease of use so you can react to a flood fast! No longer having to wait and wonder how to stop flood waters and water leakage.Our trial: We've tested both Quick Dam flood control bags featuring a tough, UV resistant synthetic shell and high quality flood bags having a natural jute exterior. Each perform as described, expanding from a seemingly empty sack to a thirty-two pound water dam "right before your eyes",to coin the phrase, that's far easier to handle than a sand filled sand bag. In each case the swollen polymer has give, allowing for easy gripping, whereas stiff, rigid sand filled bags must be man-handled in comparison. When dropped from waist height on a bare foot there's no harm from the SAP filled, water gorged bags. Try that with a rigid sand filled sand bag! Instead its mass distributes, harmlessly, upon impact. We've dropped an inflated bag from 3 feet, repeatedly, on pavement and it does not split or break. Left for weeks in direct summer sun, the bag deflates through evaporation, but will re-inflated when immersed in water.
Our preference: The Quick Dam bag because:
Flood Barriers: made from the same materials as Quick Dam bags, but elongated in shape for water diversion at specific areaes such as: garage doors, walk ways, window wells. Quick Dam Flood Barriers have an ingenious wedge incorporated along one edge to prevent the barrier from rolling backward. These Flood barriers may be stacked up to three high and are 6 inches wide and 3 inches high when fully inflated with water and are available in 3 versatile sizes:
How Strong is Quick Dam? Taking things to the extreme, it required the weight of an 18 wheel truck to finally burst an end seam of a fully inflated Quick Dam, across its weak side, or, length of the bag. When passing over the bag at a right angle, width of an inflated bag, it does not break ! So yeah, they're strong.
What about cold Canadian weather? Now, given our sometimes cold spring weather,April, even May snowfall is not unheard of, it's reassuring to know the the sandless sand bags will withstand freezing. Not waiting for Spring, we exposed a fully sodden SAP bag to February weather of -12 Celsius, for 24 hours. Frozen solid, there was no splitting, or negative effect, whatsoever, even when dropped,repeatedly, on a hard surface.

The Quick Dam exterior is made of a black, non-woven, polypropylene, a recyclable material, which provides UV protection for the inner, absorbent material,Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP), which is otherwise subject to degradation by UV rays.
How to use Quick Dam flood remediation bags ,remove from the master bag of six, then immerse in water, the SAP rapidly absorbs the water, swelling in less than 5 minutes to a typical sand bag size weighing approximately 32 pounds / 14.5Kg. The Quick Dam is then able to be deployed building defensive barriers, or, water deflectors. Quick Dam bags may be stacked for fast response at doors and windows up to 2ft in height without further reinforcement. Higher walls may be constructed according to normal engineering for traditional sand bagging.
