The Nuts and Bolts: One-Size-Fits-All Flood Protection System Launches Crowdfunding Campaign The Nuts and Bolts: One-Size-Fits-All Flood Protection System Launches Crowdfunding Campaign
HydroGuard, the First Affordable, One-Size-Fits-All, Flood Protection System To Launch Crowdfunding Campaign This Fall
HydroGuard, an affordable, reusable flood protection system, will launch a campaign on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo on September 17. The campaign hopes to raise £50,000 (≈$84,000) for the product's mass production and global distribution. HydroGuard is a compact flood protection system that uses an intelligent sliding system to adjust to fit any doorway and efficiently keep out rising flood waters.
Unlike other flood protection systems, HydroGuard is able to attach to any doorway without making any permanent alterations to the property. Alternative flood protection systems only fit certain door sizes and require making changes to the property in order to protect the house. HydroGuard's quick and easy installation means it can be installed in minutes and then cleanly removed after flooding and stored until the next use.
HydroGuard creates a sealed barrier across any door and works better than traditional sandbags, which are not reusable due to hygiene issues. Throughout the world, people pile sandbags in front of their doorways to ward off floodwaters. However, sandbags fail to create a waterproof seal to prevent floodwaters from entering homes. HydroGuard creates an instant protective seal against water and debris. It can also be easily removed in the case of an emergency exit from the property.
HydroGuard will begin their Indiegogo campaign September 17. Donations begin at just £1 and for £180 (≈$300), funders can ensure they receive their own HydroGuard to protect their homes from floods.

Are Mini Kitchens That Conceal All of the Appliances Safe?
