Does Walmart sell sandbags? How much do sandbags cost at Walmart?

A 50-pack of sandbags at Walmart costs $31.99. If you buy direct from Sandbaggy, that same pack of sandbags would cost just $24, almost 25% less.

How much is a sandbag?

Are sandbags waterproof? Do sandbags really stop water?

  • Polypropylene sand bags are effective at stopping water because of the sand contained within the bag.
  • The plastic in the bag itself, specifically polypropylene, is water permeable.
  • This makes the polypropylene sand bags more versatile because putting gravel (rather than sand) in the bags allows them to stop sediment while allowing water to flow through. 
  • Our customers have found that the water permeability of the plastic allows water that gets in the sand to be released from the bag, so the sand doesn't stay soggy.

How are sandbags calculated?

  • If you are building a sandbags wall, calculate how many sandbags you need. Our 14" x 26" and 18" x 30" sandbags are specifically designed sandbags for flooding.
  • In general, it takes 600 standard 14" x 26" sandbags to build a 100-foot wall 1 foot tall.

Do sandbags actually work?

Yes. Polypropylene sandbags are effective at stopping water because the sand contained within the bag does not allow water to flow through.

Do I need sandbags for hurricane?

If there is a risk of flooding in your area due to an upcoming hurricane, it is best that you stock up on sandbags. Sandbags will help keep most of the water out if prepared correctly.

How much does a pallet of sandbags weigh?

One pallet can hold 15,000 14" x 26" empty sandbags, which weighs 1,200 pounds. 

What kind of bags do you use for sandbags?

14" x 26" polypropylene sandbags, which are designed specifically to control flooding and are constructed of tough, woven polypropylene. They can last at least 3-6 months under direct sunlight.

How do you fill sandbags? 

  1. Wear gloves
  2. Fill sandbags 1/2 to 2/3 full and tie the bag at the top with the included ties
  3. Use a short handled, #2 rounded point shovel with straight shaft and D grip, bagger scoop or funnel to fill sandbags.
  4. Remove any debris from the areas where the sandbags will be placed. After placing the sandbag, walk on the sandbags to create a tight seal between each bag.

How long do sandbags last?

  • Polypropylene sandbags (14" x 26", 18" x 30") last 3-6 months under direct sunlight in sunny states like Florida and California because they have 1600 hours of built-in UV protection.
  • This makes them perfect for erosion control projects where the bags will be sitting outside for months.
  • Burlap sandbags (14" x 26") last one month under direct sunlight before biodegrading and becoming a part of the natural environment again.

How do sandbags work?

  • Polypropylene sand bags are effective at stopping water because of the sand contained within the bag.
  • The plastic in the bag itself, specifically polypropylene, is water permeable.
  • This makes the polypropylene sand bags more versatile because putting gravel (rather than sand) in the bags allows them to stop sediment while allowing water to flow through.

Can sandbags be reused?

  • If the sandbags stay dry and intact (no tears in the bag), they can be reused.
  • But if they have been used to stop flooding, sandbags should not be reused, as flood water is generally contaminated with chemicals and other hazardous liquids.
