Step-by-step FLOODSTOP barrier assembly
Inspect ground conditions and clear any debris
Position FLOODSTOP pods in linear position for the chosen barrier length
Fully insert connection keys
Apply the required curvature to the barrier
Pre-fill at least 1 of every 3rd unit with water ballast. Rest of the units automatically fill with the rising flood waters.
Wall Connections and Disbandment
Connecting the Floodstop barrier to a wall using a Multi-hub:
- Connect the Multi-hub pod to end of the assembled FLOODSTOP flood barrier
- Rotate the 'cam-like' pod into the in-situ object (typically a wall). May need to wedge unit
- Fill the pod with water ballast
Disbanding the Floodstop flood barrier:
- Remove universal keys
- Drain water from pre-filled units by tipping the units over carefully (FS24 system) or by unscrewing the water-release caps (FS36 system)
- Pack the system away
Important Assembly Notes
All of our flood barrier systems work to a height of approximately 70-80%. A freeboard is required when in use.
If the wall or ground surface is not adequately flat (i.e. where Floodstop’s foam gaskets are in contact) the seepage rate may vary - it is recommended to have a small pump on hand to pump away excessive leakage if required.
The system is not recommended for use on gravel.

"We are using the system and it is working great; Floodstop is keeping our platform and car park open and safe to our customers and colleagues during recent extreme weather and associated flooding"
Matthew Lee, First Great Western
“The system we purchased from you for use at our house in Downton has proved invaluable over the last couple of months."
“The barriers were severely tested with flood water during Storm Imogen. Everything worked fine and the house remained dry throughout. We were very impressed.“
Mr Hancock, private householder
“We have had to use the Floodstop over the weekend and what a GREAT job it did for us!"
Mr Hunt, private householder
"We discovered that FLOODSTOP barriers are a fraction of the cost of alternative flood prevention products on the market. Knowing we have effective prevention from the threat of flooding is a great weight off our minds. They are easy and simple to use and when the job is done they can be simply picked up and put back in the garage."
A.Pulford, private householder
