Q) How much water will a WaterBloc bag absorb?
A) A single 23" x 16" H2Old REDI•SORB bag will absorb more than 4 gallons of water creating a firm, stable gel. REDI•SORB bags will weigh from 33 lbs. A 12" x 12" REDI•SORB bag will absorb 1.25 gallons.
Q) How Do H2Old REDI•SORB bags work?
A) REDI•SORB bags contain a special Super Absorbent Polymer that can absorb and retain up to 300 times its weight in water and other water based fluids. Water passes through the heavy-duty, non-woven fiber bag and activates the “water craving” polymer. The polymer granules absorb the water and swell creating a firm gel.
Q) How long will it take for a REDI•SORB bag to reach its capacity?
A) A REDI•SORB bag will begin absorbing water in about 1-3 minutes and reach its capacity of over 4 gallons of water in 3-5 minutes.
Q) What is the best way to dispose of a REDI•SORB bag?
A) REDI•SORB bags can be deactivated with a simple table salt-water solution (10-15%). Spray the bags or pour the salt water on to the bags until saturated. The salt in the water will break down the chemical bond of the H2Old Super Absorbent Polymer changing the gel to water.The polymer gel inside the bag can also be tilled into the soil or blended with soil around trees, shrubs, and plant roots, reducing water requirements up to 50% and improving nutrient uptake.
Q) Will H2Old REDI•SORB bags absorb salt water?
A) H2Old Super Absorbent Polymer is a cross-linked sodium polyacrylate that has limited absorption capacity for salt water. The use in a salt water environment is not recommended.
Q) Is the Super Absorbent Polymer in REDI•SORB bags safe?
A) H2Old Super Absorbent Polymer is perfectly safe and is environmentally friendly. The Super Absorbent Polymer gel can be flushed into storm drains with no harmful effects to the environment, aquatic life, or humans.
Q) How long can H2Old REDI•SORB bags be stored before use?
A) The H2Old Super Absorbent Polymer in REDI•SORB bags can be stored for 5 years or more.
