With forecasters predicting the El Nino this year to be much stronger and more destructive than that seen in 1997-1998, flooding is on everyone’s minds and that means sandbags, and lots of them.
The current drought conditions seen in California increases the flood potential due to the soils being so dry and hard. The soils are like concrete and the rain water will tend to sheet flow instead of absorbing into the soils which can result in widespread flooding during heavy rain events.
The wildfires seen across much of the West Coast last summer will also contribute to increased flooding and landslide potential. With little or no vegetation and trees to help absorb and slow the water down, downstream properties will have a greater flood and landslide potential. Evidence of this has already been experienced in areas of California and Oregon earlier this fall.
Having a way to quickly fill and place sandbags to divert the waters and protect your property from flooding can be priceless when the waters are rising.
Don’t be filling sandbags by hand when you can fill and place over 600 bags per hour with the SandMaster!
The SandMaster Sandbagging System, and its ability to fill, transport, securely close and place multiple sandbags where they are needed, is a “MUST HAVE” for those who want the most efficient and cost effective way to fill and place sandbags on the market today.
“The difference between PRESERVATION and DEVASTATION is the quantity of sandbags in place”
