Whether caused by a natural disaster or a burst pipe, flood damage can be devastating to your home. Unfortunately, many homeowners are ill prepared for rising floodwaters due to the expensive costs of barriers and the hassle of sandbags. That’s why Hannes Floto, a two-time victim of flooding, teamed up with designers to invent HydroGuard, a simple and effective one-time investment designed to keep your home dry in the event of a flood. This reusable and easy-to-install flood barrier can be adjusted to fit any doorframe and uses a secure seal to defend against fast flowing water. The HydroGuard team is currently crowd sourcing funding for their design in an Indiegogo campaign – support it here!
