    I really appreciate your tip on how a leak diverter can move the leak to a manageable area until it can be taken care of. My wife and I recently moved into a new neighborhood that has a big lake next to it, and we are concerned that we won’t be able to handle any floods. I will be sure to tell my wife that we should try and get a leak diverter for an emergency!

    Flood waters are never a good thing to happen. It would be a good idea to be prepared. I’ll probably have to get some of the things you listed here.

    I like that you pointed out that there are dam barriers that we can use to keep water out, and they will not take that much space, unlike sandbags. I will be choosing this for my house since the news said that there will be a storm coming. The last storm we had got our basement flooded since the river near us overflowed and reached our house.
