Guy laughed at saves his home with the aqua-dam
Texas has been inundated by rainfall over the course of the last several weeks, so to protect himself and his family, Randy Wagner of Rosharon in Brazoria County decided to buy an AquaDam, branded as the “world’s largest water filled cofferdam.” And while you can’t believe everything you read on the internet, apparently, this was very real marketing. The AquaDam, believe it or not, worked, saving Wagner and his home from flooding.
Speaking with KHOU of Houston, Wagner revealed that acquiring the dam required quite a bit of dedication — he trekked all the way to Louisiana to pick up the contraption, then enlisted the help of two other men to fill up the 400 feet of 30-inch-high plastic and fabric tubes with water. And even as flood waters rose to 27 inches, Wagner’s family stayed (literally) high and dry.
“I was the crazy guy. Everybody was kinda going by, laughing at me. But today they are really impressed with this AquaDam,” Wagner said
