Flooding is always a serious problem that can cause damage of properties and even the loss of lives. Fortunately for us, many of today’s great thinkers are devising solutions to address the problem.
For example, we’ve heard about the Topmix Permeable concrete which is designed to absorb 4,000 liters of water in a minute’s time. On top of that, we’ve also seen Netherlands’ massive Maelanstkering, a storm surge barrier almost the same size as “two tubular Eiffel Towers, toppled over.”
While those are unquestionably effective and amazing, the masses couldn’t help but wonder: What can we do to flood-proof our homes if our communities do not have these technologies?
The answer: Dam Easy!
Dam Easy’s Flood Barrier Door Dam is being marketed as “the only domestic flood barrier with a unique patented pneumatic pump action seal,” according to its official website. It is ideal for home and commercial protection and the company guarantees that it’s really easy to use.
In fact, the water tight barrier can be installed by anyone – and it only takes about 5 minutes.
The website further tells us that one barrier has the “ability to extend from 780mm to 1100mm.”
Meanwhile, Dam Easy CEO Brian Mooney shared:
“Our goal at Dam Easy is to create innovative and easy to use products that allow you to protect your home or business as economically as possible from flooding.”

Interesting tech, isn’t it? If your place is prone to flooding, we say this one is worth the investment. Preparation is key and lack of it can be pretty costly in the long run.
Each of these barriers cost $800 and you can head over to the company’s official website if you want to learn more about the product.
