One's not enough!
Ordered 1 a couple of years ago & decided to order an additional one (original is still in perfect condition).Use them inside garage door and inside enclosed porch door, both areas where a windy rain will find its way inside. Saves mop up time and materials.

Water Snake
Used the water snake in my garage. When it rains,
water seeps in by the door.......the water snake
solved the problem.
June 6, 2011
I would purchase more
Very satisfied.
December 31, 2018
I am ordering a second time
I use the water snake by placing it below the windshield where it joins body of my golf cart. Rain would blow in there as well as cold air in winter months. The Snake eliminates those problems since here in The Villages, Fl., we use our golf carts for much more than golfing!
July 6, 2012
It really works
Our upstairs tub lets water drip over side when you shower at the end. past curtain. Have had the floor soaked and leakage in downstairs hall.
Bought one of these years ago works great. Now going to use one downstairs. Walk in shower with curtain that sometimes goes out if hit by sprayer. Thanks for great product.

I cannot be without this product
This product has saved me money.I would have to put a sump pump in had i not bought this. Works very well.
March 16, 2011
I've purchased several times in the past
The Water Snake is very useful for problem areas where water seepish is present. It can be used over and over again.
They work great
They absorb water very well and we are pleased with product.

Great Household Tool to Collect Water
It is a great tool to divert water away by absorbing it!
I use this tool on my porch as when it rains with wind, my porch collects water. This tool soaks it up and when the sunny days return, it goes outside to dry for the next rain. Would be good to control water from a leak by soaking the water up and not having it spread everywhere. I have bought these more than once! If it eventually fades [over the years] or you don't feel it is clean enough, it is time to replace it. It certainly works well for my porch needs!

Water Snake Moisture Absorber - Large
I found the large water snake to be very absorbent. One did such a great job that I ended up ordering 7 more. My only complaint: if the water snake is totally saturated it takes FOREVER to dry, even in direct sunlight.

water poodles in small areas on pool patio after rain. If water is not removed patio gets<br />dirty and has to be hosed down. Hoping this will solve my problem and create less<br />upkeep on patio.
Anne O on Jul 30, 2018
They are awsome. I use them in my garage by my overhead doors when I put them down. Keeps water from seeping in under my garage door when raining hard!

Can the water snake be dried in the dryer?
cls............ on Oct 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Do not put it in the dryer. The water snake is sand base and will ruin the dryer. They do drip dry very quickly. Use two buckets side by side and they will be dry or at least ready to reuse in an hour. I had a leaky door for years in Florida. We get real down pours that would just come in that door. I kept the water snakes at the base they soaked up all the rain. Even when the hurricanes came through, 4 water snakes kept the water out!!
Hello. Does anyone know what length the grey snake is?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The sizes for this item are

•Regular: 38" long x 4" diameter
•Large: 36" long x 5 3/4" dia

We hope this information will be of help to you.
can snake be rinsed to clean when dusty?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never used my water snake to absorb water. I use it as a draft dodger. When it gets dusty I run the vacuum hose over it
do theses water snakes take moisture out of air?
Dan G on Nov 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, they only remove water they can soak up. They have to be in the puddle of water to pick it up.
can it be used outside?
Veda M on Jun 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is a sleeve of cloth that holds an absorbent filler, like a bean bag, so I assume it will work anywhere. It could be used outdoors like a sandbag at the bottom of a door or window. Not sure how long the fabric would last with outdoor use. Hope this helps.
can this be used for a leaky basement door?
Julie A on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you mean BENEATH the door, and the distance from floor to door is no more than an inch or so, I would say "yes", it could. I have two of these items, and they do absorb an incredible amount of fluid. Takes some time to dry them out, however. I usually hang mine to do so, but it does need time. If your door is constantly leaky, it wouldn't work very well.
how long does it take to dry out and how does it dry out?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It took approximately two days for the water snake to dry out. I placed it out on my deck railing in the sun. I had the water snakes around my furnace base and am glad I did. The washer has a problem and kept filling. The snake kept the water away from the furnace, but they do take a few days to dry out.
What color are these, grey or blue? Do I have a choice of colors?
caribbeangirl on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Colors vary, we will pick for you. We hope this information will be of help to you.
What's it made of?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know what it’s made of, but I will always have them in my home. They have helped keep water from seeping under our sliding doors and windows during hurricanes, and they have absorbed overflow water from our air conditioning unit. We wring them out, lay the. In the sun to dry, and they are ready to absorb more.
Where do you select the color?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The water snake only comes in one color. We hope this information will be of help to you.

Thank you,
Miles Kimball
Are these mildew resistant?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. They are not mildew resistant. We hope this information will be of help to you.
What are the water snake contents?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It is filled with crushed corn cobs. We hope this information will be of help to you.
I live on the side of a small hill and when it rains we get water seepage through a small part o,f our garage block wall, near the bottom...most likely due to hydrostatic pressure. The puddle runs to a drain in the middle of the floor. Would these be able,to sit on the fly or where it meets the wall and absorb the water as it sees out? Since we only have this problem a handful of time per year, how long would these last? I need to put down some sort of absorption tool in the corner...9' along one wall and 12' along the other.

Thanks in advance.
Richard on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. We do not know how long these last, you may want to read the reviews on this item. Our customers love it. We hope this information will be of help to you.
What does a Regular weigh when saturated with water ?
Mary J on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The Regular snake weighs 0.66 Lbs; at its most absorbent, it’ll weigh 6.6 Lbs. We hope this information will be of help to you.
If the bottom length of the sliding door is 68", what size of the Snake Moisture absorber should I order?
Emy D on Jan 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. If you want the item to cover the whole length you would need to order 2, regular would work. We hope this information will be of help to you.
