: JBS has a new, unique, patented, low labour alternative to sandbags. The JBS Hydrosack (or JBS Hydrosnake, if a longer boom is needed). These lightweight bags absorb water and expand to approx 10 times their normal size. This means that you do not need to spend hour filling sand bags.
Once the flood threat has passed, our Hydrosacks can just be split with a knife, and their pulp contents will biodegrade in an environmentally friendly manner. (This again saves the user from having to empty sand bags and dispose of the sand.
The hydrosacks can be stored for years in a dry environment, where they occupy minimal space. They are then at hand and ready to use quickly when there is a flood threat.
