A Ready To Go Water Barrier!

Get sandbags installed 10X faster and set up a water barrier in just minutes with Water Activated Sandless Sandbags! There’s zero work required, once the water hits the sandbag the sandbag expands to create a water barrier and protect against flooding. They work great for flood protection and erosion control applications.

At Sandbaggy we want to ensure all our sandbags are built to last and able to accomplish just what you need them for! We’ve constructed our Sandless Sandbags to be extremely tough. They are 2x thicker than the competition and can be dropped 40+ times without any damage to the bag! Plus, they arrive ready to go, and once installed last 3-6 months (they have a storage life of 5 years). Our sandless sandbags are made in the USA.

More options available: 5 ft Long Water Activated Sandbags

How do water activated sandbags work?

Our Water Activated Sandbags contain superabsorbent polymers (gel) within the outer shell that expand as they absorb water. This makes them much easier to use and handle than a traditional sandbag. You can easily stack multiple bags on top of each other.

For the 14" x 26" sandbags, just put them in a bucket of water or spray them with water and they’ll expand to their full size (3.5 to 4.5 inches tall) within 3-7 minutes. 

For the 5 ft long sandbags, put them in a bucket of water and let them fill up. Then when they are full, take them out and spray them with water and they’ll expand to their full size (3.5 inches tall). This whole process should take about 10 minutes.

    Do sandless sandbags work?

    Sandless sandbags are effective in preventing flooding and erosion, and have been tested and proven to be effective in real-world situations. They work similar to traditional sandbags, the difference is that they use superabsorbent polymers to absorb water and subsequently divert water, rather than being filled with sand, gravel, or dirt.

    How long do sandless sandbags last?

    Like all sandbags, the lifespan depends on a variety of factors such as the conditions they are being used or stored under. Once activated with water, our sandless sandbags will last 3-6 months. If stored properly, in an enclosed area like a garage, these sandbags have a storage life of 5 years.

    Can you reuse water activated sandbags?

    Once activated, you can reuse these sandbags as many times as you need within 3-6 months. After that we recommend using a new sandbag.

    Awesome Gel Ball Filled Sand Bags

    These are amazing. They are light until filled so you can maneuver them easily. The Gel pellets plumb up quickly and the Sand Bag is ready to use.

    My name is David and I LOVE these bags! I have a room that is low to the ground and water runs downhill in my yard. My floor was flooding. These bags saved my floor until I get my yard fixed. Thank you!! It saved me from having to replace a whole room!
