Frequently Asked Questions

Are Ultra-Aqua Bags reusable?
It depends on what is meant by "reusable".  The bags can be moved from one location to be reused at another location.  However, once they have been activated, they cannot be re-activated once the water has left/evaporated.

 

How long do the Ultra-Aqua Bags take to be fully activated/saturated?
Aqua bags will be fully activated and ready to be used after approximately five minutes of water immersion.

 

Once filled, how long will Ultra-Aqua Bags last?   
They will last/stay filled for 1-3 months, depending on temperature, humidity, environment, etc.  The water will eventually leave the bag.

 

What is the staging pool for?  Do I need one?
The staging pools is an optional accessory.  It is a very portable pool that can be used to activate multiple Ultra-Aqua Bags at one time.  Bags can be activated in buckets, bins, kiddie pools, etc. and do not require the staging pool.  The staging pool is more convenient than other methods because it folds/rolls into an easy to carry, lightweight package.

 

Can Ultra-Aqua Bags be used with salt water?
Aqua Bags can be used as a water dam, flood barrier or water barrier to prevent salt water from getting to sensitive or valuable areas or spaces.  However, they must first be activated with fresh water.

 

How long will Aqua Bags work?  
Ultra-Aqua Bags can block water for as long as they are still filled.  If it is warm temperature the bags can start to lose water in 1-3 months.  In different cooler conditions, this could take in excess of three months.  Due to many different conditions, including types of fresh water (city, lake, river, etc) it is hard to give an exact timeframe.

 

How long can I store Aqua Bags?
As long as they are stored in the bags they come in, the Ultra-Aqua Bags have a 10-year shelf life.
