Watch a prepper save his home with an Aqua Dam

RealClear Staff


While some may view “preppers” as way overly precautious, and even extreme, they have some incredibly unique ways that can be very helpful, to the point of actually saving your home, and your life.

Focus is too often pushed towards the zombie apocalypse scenario, when in fact their methods are extremely useful when it comes to natural disasters and extreme weather conditions. Case in point is Randy Wagner. He automatically was pegged as nuts when he drove all the way from Louisiana from Texas to get an “Aqua Dam” for $8300. Fast forward to the massive Texas floods. Randy was no longer the nut, as his invested completely paid off and saved his home.

The tube is 30” tall. It’s filled with water in order to hold back the flood waters coming in. Here’s what Wagner had to say about his investment and the reaction from others”

“I was the crazy guy. Everybody was kinda, y’know, goin’ by laughing at me. But today they’re really impressed with this.”

The floods arrived and reached a depth of 27”. They never broke through the barrier that Randy had in place. Flood damage would have for sure been more costly than $8300, not to mention all the headache and aggravations having to deal with repairs!
