Prevent sewer backup with the Water-Plug solution
The Water-Plug is designed to prevent and repair a sewer backup. Simple and easy to set up, the water barrier helps rapidly secure the premises, limit the damage, and therefore reduce the financial and environmental impacts of a sewer backup.
Sewer backups usually happen after heavy and prolonged rainfall but can also be caused by plumbing problems such as construction mishaps, broken water mains, or poorly installed valves. Regardless of the cause, sewer backups result in extensive property damage that affects cities, municipalities, and sometimes even homeowners.
The Water-Plug by MegaSecur™ is made of heavy-duty vinyl‑coated polyester with a galvanized steel chain sewn onto the base.
The Water-Plug barrier is a quick fix for sewer backups without disrupting traffic, making it ideal for emergency response in urban areas.
There’s no limit to how often you can use the Water‑Plug. Made with heavy‑duty vinyl-coated polyester, the Water-Plug is designed to withstand high water pressure.
The Water-Plug is conical so that it deploys automatically, even if the sewer backup has already started. Simply place it over the sewer cover and watch it expand as it fills with water.
1- Never dig behing the barrier |
2- Use a pump to move excess water upstream of the barrier
3- Place weights in front of the barrier to reduce infiltration | 4- Make sure you do not forget any object below the barrier
The Water-Plug dam is made with heavy-duty vinyl-coated polyester. A galvanized steel chain is incorporated into the base to reduce seepage and increase stability.
The Water-Plug can be used with the Water-Gate™ WL Series to prevent flooding, secure the surroundings, and have complete control over any situation.
Determine the nature of the flood
Take note of the flood level of your locality
Define the potential protection perimeter
Identify the presence of obstacles (trees, walls, etc.)
Identify the lowest point of the protection path
Allow extra length when resting on a wall
Take into account the footprint of the soil
Complete the response plan with pumps, quick deployment box, additional ballast, special anchorage, etc.
WL letters represent the product range, e.g.: WL for flood protection, WA for water supply/temporary cofferdam, WT for hazmat/oil spill containment.
The first two numbers (26) represent the height in inches.
The last two numbers (30) represent the length in feet.
So WL-2630 means: a WL Series barrier with 26 in height and 30 ft length.
