Product Description

Breezy doors and leaky windows have met their match with our water absorbing draft stopper. Water eater stretches to 38" long by 3" in diameter, making it easy to use and store. No ooze solid media locks in liquid so you can't wring out a single drop. Quickly dries for reuse in a few hours of sunshine or place near a vent to humidify your whole house in winter. Antibacterial design resists mold and mildew when wet. The Water Eater is a nylon-encased "door snake" which is 38" long and 3" in diameter. The Water Eater can be molded to any shape and the best news; these moisture absorbent packs air-dry to be used again. Each water eater locks in about 1 gallon of liquid and is made of non-toxic material. You cannot squeeze out a drop of water. Absorbent material stays firm and will not ooze or feel slimey to the touch.

We have a below grade door that suffers a considerable draft and dampness during strong rains. This item manages to squish into the space well and then even though it is exposed to constant damp it has not mildewed. I am impressed and want another. None to be found on Amazon today. I'll have to shop around.

I bought the water eater to catch rain which sometimes blows in on our porch. It's a stained concrete floor, so I wasn't concerned about just leaving the water eater in place. I put it several inches away from the wall, and it did a great job of absorbing water that would have run toward the house. However...

I don't know why, but my husband decided one day to pick it up and wring it out...

Like some others have said, it becomes a gooey mess - and you'll be "slimed." We had to toss it.

Don't use this product on wood or any surface that must be dried out quickly. If the water eater gets saturated, just move it when you can and let it alone to dry on a flat surface. DO NOT try to wring it out! It will absorb an amazing amount of water and the inside feels like a gel, but does not require wringing out.

I gave it a 5 star rating because, used properly and under the right conditions, this is a great product. If I cannot find it locally, I will order another one.

This water eater is a great product. I have had trouble in the past with water from near my bathtub and under my aquarium leaking occasionally and going to the apartment below, much to my embarrassment. Now I know that this product will absorb the water and then dry out with no odor. Solves the problem for me!

I had maybe two cup's worth of water spill on my carpet. I put this item down on the carpet to absorb the water. It barely absorbed anything. I probably could have absorbed more with several good paper towels. Then these little white sticky things started coming out all over. Couldn't wait to wash them off my hands. I used this item once and it didn't do what it should have, and then I tossed it into the trash. I didn't want to deal with the white things again. For me, it was a complete waste of money.

I recently had a chance to see these in action as we had a very heavy rain storn. While they did absorb some of the water in the basement, the storm was over a week ago and they are still not dried out - good thing we haven't had any more heavy rain. I hung them up to dry and they oozed some kind of slimey stuff all over the floor and my hands when I picked them up. Most of the "stuffing" has migrated to the ends I have hanging down & they are still wet & dripping slime!

I really wanted this product to work, since my below grade entrance gets a shallow coating of water every time it rains. I placed Mr.Quick Wick at the entrance and it absorbed about as much water as a sponge of the equivalent size would, enough to make it soppy but not enough to prevent the water from creeping past it. After the rain, the product is slow to dry out and keep clean, and looks like a drowned worm while the water slowly seeps out. It also has a slimy feel when wet, making wringing it out unpleasant.
