The Aqua Dam: Water Fighting Floods

Home and Garden September 13, 2017

The Aqua Dam Water Fighting Floods

The Aqua Dam is an innovative new piece of insulation that assists in keeping flood waters  from ruining your land and your home. You can imagine, especially now during the times of tropical storms and hurricanes, this is a godsend for those who can afford it. Although the average price of the Aqua Dam is about $8300, it is well worth it if your home is worth hundreds of thousands and the land around it costing even more. A piece of equipment that can save your property from flood waters, is a bargain. Maybe in the near future there will be aqua dams that are a little more affordable for those with lower incomes.

To give you an idea of how the aqua dam works, imagine heavy tubing that is filled with water wrapped around your entire property to act as a water-filled barrier against flood waters. Water, like fire, has its good purpose along with its ability to be destructive. Here, the aqua dam is using its ability to protect your property from the damage free flowing water can do to your home.

Aqua dams are becoming popular because people are seeing that they can serve many different purposes. The U-shaped aqua dam was used for a project in Port Saint Lucie, Fl. to hold the water of three lakes back so that pipelines could be installed. Again, the Aqua Dam acted as a barrier to hold the lakes into the U-shaped form of the dams while the piping was being laid, eventually, under the rivers.

Besides there being a number of YouTube videos showing homeowners how to install and remove their aqua dams, aquadam.net also has pictorials on how to install and remove the water dams. There will be some who will think the Aqua Dam is just too expensive and unfortunately this may be true, however, the Aqua Dam has shown us a new way to protect homes and businesses from floods, and just maybe if we recognize that water can be used to protect us from water, which sounds strange but true, someone who is a little handy can maybe build an aqua dam of his/her own for less.
