How do you divert water away from your driveway?

Redirecting water away from your driveway is crucial in reducing the risk of flooding. The adoption of drainage strategies, such as the installation of French or trench drains, can proficiently divert water from your premises. Moreover, judicious landscaping and engineering a slight incline in your driveway to guide water towards street drains can significantly boost your home’s flood defence.

Beyond structural adjustments, the integration of our bespoke flood defence products can further strengthen your driveway’s guard against floods. For example, tactically positioned Flood Cubes or FloodSax along the edges of your driveway can form an effective barrier to redirect approaching water from your property. In the same vein, Osmo Flood Barriers, renowned for their capacity to absorb water, can be arranged to establish a temporary shield against surface runoff, efficiently guiding water to safer egress points.

Merging these advanced solutions with conventional landscaping and drainage methods not only fortifies your driveway against direct floodwater ingress but also helps control the overall water circulation around your property, significantly reducing the likelihood of water damage from all directions. This comprehensive approach to flood defence assures that your garage, driveway, and adjacent areas remain protected, maintaining the integrity and safety of your home amidst potential flooding scenarios.

Tips for Using Sandbag Alternatives

Alternatives to traditional sandbags, such as Floodsax, present multiple benefits, such as convenient storage, rapid deployment, and the ability to be reused. Here are some tips for using these alternatives effectively:

Preparation: Store Floodsax or comparable items in a readily accessible spot to ensure they can be deployed swiftly in response to unexpected flood alerts.

Activation: Adhere to the instructions provided with the product to activate it properly, making sure it's prepared to soak up water and swell to its maximum capacity.

Placement: Position the barriers strategically at entryways to eliminate any spaces that could allow water infiltration. Using an overlapping and layered approach can significantly boost their efficiency.

Post-Event: After the floodwaters have subsided, follow the product guidelines to properly dispose of any items that have become contaminated.

Securing your driveway against flooding is crucial for the overall safety of your property.
