What is the difference between 14" x 26" poly sandbags and 18" x 30" poly sandbags?

14" x 26" sandbags are available in four colors: white, green, beige, orange. 18" x 30" sandbags are only available in white.

When filled up, a 14" x 26" sandbag weighs 30-50 pounds while an 18" x 30" sandbag weighs 75-100 pounds. The 18" x 30" sandbag can fit 2-3 times more material in each bag compared with the 14" x 26" sandbag.

Both sizes have 1600 hours of UV protection and can be used for a variety of purposes, including earthbag home building and filling the bags up with coal and other materials and selling it by the bag.

Both have a hem top at the top of the bag. This means that there is sewing at the top of the bag so that the bags do not fray.

How to use sandbags: filling tips and materials

Sandbags filling instructions (step by step) and fill materials

Sandbags Filling Tips

  1. Fill sandbags 1/2 to 2/3 full and tie the bag at the top (lay flat when in place).
    • This sandbag should weigh between 35-40 lbs.
    • An overfilled sandbag weighs between 60-75 lbs and will leave gaps which will allow water to seep through.
  2. Always wear gloves during the filling operation to avoid hand injuries and protect yourself from contaminants in sand and floodwater.
    • Safety goggles should be used on dry and windy days.
    • Filling sandbags is physically demanding work and can easily cause back and other injuries if not careful.
    • Always lift with your legs and not your back.
    • Do not reach out, bend over, or twist when lifting.
  3. Do not throw sandbags - it stresses the back and shoulders.
    • Instead, use a brigade line to pass bags
  4. Use a short handled, #2 rounded point shovel with straight shaft and D grip, bagger scoop or funnel to fill sandbags.
  5. 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.
Fill Materials
  • Sandbaggy sandbags are built to withstand both gravel or sand.
    • Be aware of poor quality sandbags that rupture when filled with sharp gravel rocks.
  • Gravel should be filled in sandbag when used as an erosion control device (on slopes).
  • Sand should be filled for flood control needs, whether to protect doors or garage or to divert water.
  • If sand or gravel is not accessible, less effective solutions is to fill the sandbags with backyard soil.
