Hydrosnake

The Hydrosnake is an innovative product aimed at offering emergency flood protection. The bags weigh 0.5kg before activation and after 2-3 minutes of contact with water, they absorb the water and swell to create an effective barrier against flood and runoff water. The Hydrosnake produces a barrier that is effectively the same size as 6 standard sandbags. The Hydrosnake absorbent core contains a stabilised mixture of FSC wood pulp and super absorbent polymer (SAP). Both are degradable meaning that the contents can be emptied onto the earth after use without any harmful effects.

  • Size: Length 145cm, width 25cm
  • Absorption: 15-20 litres
  • Inflation time: 2-3 minutes
  • Weight before: 0.5kg, weight after: 10-15kg
  • Handles x2
  • Non-toxic, EcoFriendly
