Instruction - water protection cushions and water protection barriers

Sous-sol mobile de protection contre les inondations
We have chosen a garage entrance for this. We suddenly simulate excess water that is then drained away. This is just one of many flood situations. This flows in streams from the street towards the garage, as often happens in reality on site.


More and more private households as well as tissue producers are confronted with floods and floods. It is often only brief storms with downpours and strong thunderstorms that make excess water a problem. The water often comes through overcrowded canals, garage entrances and cellar entrances, light shafts and entrance doors. But also indoors, such as defective devices with a water connection or broken pipes, cause high water damage. The water is often very difficult to stop and contain.

With the mobile water protection cushions and water protection hoses, the water is absorbed within a short time and not released again. The advantage of the cushions and hoses is that in an emergency, immediate use is guaranteed in the event of excess water. The granules inside the cushions and hoses bind the water in a short time. When the water suction pads and water suction hoses are filled with water, they act as a barrier and so the water can drain around and around as described below. The cushions can often be beneficial indoors. In this way, dripping water from the ceiling can be easily and cleanly collected and transported away.


The material of the water protection hoses and pillows is made of hard-wearing non-woven fabric. The specially and naturally produced fleece absorbs the water and does not give it off again. This is the only way to create a water barrier later. Inside the protective tubes and cushions is a high-quality granulate super absorber that binds the water in a short time. A strong color ensures safety on the roadside.

Caution ! The use of water protection hoses and cushions is limited in the event of flooding. The material can only process the water to a limited extent. You can see the exact information regarding water absorption and capacity in the item description in the shop.

It is important to keep the pillows and tubes ready for use. This means that they can be stored in the basement or side rooms for a longer period of time.

The protective hoses are now prepared. It makes sense to distribute the granules evenly inside the hose. However, it is sufficient if the granules are only roughly distributed. The water is mainly absorbed by the special fleece. The water protection hoses are now placed along the desired water barrier. It is important to ensure that a protrusion of approx. 10-15 cm is maintained. The protective tubes are very light when dry. It should be noted that the hoses are soaked in water beforehand or weighed down with stones. Strong gusts of wind are to be expected before the storm. The main advantage of the hoses is the optimal adaptation to the ground. Optimal sealing can therefore also be expected for house entrance doors and cellar doors. Laying on the hoses is quick and easy.

Caution ! As long as the water protection cushions and hoses are not brought into contact with pollutant-containing material and water, they can simply be disposed of with household waste and do not endanger your health.

In the test, we connected the mobile water protection hoses with water in order to immediately create an optimal barrier. Then we released 4000 liters of excess water and washed it towards the water barrier. The mobile flood protection remains almost dry on the back. In the video (see below) you can see how easily and quickly an optimal barrier can be created in an emergency to prevent such high damage.

Many fire brigades are already using the water suction hoses. In times of flooding, many water barriers are often required at the same time without the time-consuming filling of sandbags.

Caution ! When storing, make sure that the tubes and pillows are protected from UV light and high humidity.

The result

The result is quite impressive. Of course, the hoses cannot withstand high levels of flooding. We all know that floods can generally only be treated to a limited extent. But in 2019 we have to reckon with storms and heavy rain again. With the protective cushions and hoses, a lot of damage can be prevented in an emergency and saves a lot of stress. Water damage is usually enormous. Even the fire brigade can only help to a limited extent in times of flooding. Often many are affected at the same time and need immediate help.

For maximum safety, we also recommend the well-proven flood box. With the flood box, cellars that are already under water can be pumped out in a very short time. The flood box is an optimal dirty water submersible pump with high performance and is offered as a set including a hose

Caution ! As long as the water protection cushions and hoses are not brought into contact with pollutant-containing material and water, they can simply be disposed of with household waste and do not endanger your health.

There are two-chamber water protection hoses e.g. Water protection hose, two-chamber system . You can stack a water protection hose one-chamber system and increase the water barrier

Yes, you can reuse the hose after it is dry. How often the hose can be used, however, depends on the water pollution. If the hose becomes heavily contaminated, it can be used once.

The hoses are very light and easy to use. Depending on the size, the water protection tubes weigh between 0.5 and 3 kg

We also send the flood protection hoses and pillows to Switzerland.

The water protection hoses and pillows are sent to the desired address throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
