My solution was to build a wooden frame angle bracket (with green wood) which is held in place by the weight of the water-filled barrier (wood floats!). The bracket holds the barrier tight against the door. This could also be accomplished with sandbags (ugh!) or even a few bags of potting soil. Adding a wedge is especially important if the surface is not level or the barrier WILL definitely roll. I found adding a wedge is essential at every entryway, including the garage door. Quickly receding water just might pull the barrier away enough to allow water in.
I also decided to stack the barriers to make them higher, since 12" is not enough for me. I accomplished this by placing two wide straps (or rope, if you don't have a strap) under the barrier prior to filling it. Then adding the second barrier and tying the two together with the straps. The wedge keeps both barriers tight against the entryway.
A word about the blue hydrafill adaptor. It doesn't work on this model. But I just held it in place while filling the barrier. No big deal. It fills quickly.
The barrier itself is made of a sturdy material. I've had no problems with leaks or punctures, but I prepare the surface underneath the barrier by removing anything that might puncture it under the weight of the water. You could also put something (like a tarp) underneath the barrier to protect it, if you're using it on a pebbled driveway, for example.
Finally, I prepare the entryways just as I would if I were using sandbags. I use thick plastic sheeting to cover the entryways and hold the sheets in place with duct tape or better yet, waterproof Flex tape. I used duct tape before Hurricane Hermine and it "may have" helped, I'm not sure because the duct tape pulled away and I still had water in the house. I didn't have the hydrabarriers then. Preparation is a good best practice any way you look at it. Water is the worst and will find any way to get in, so you need to do other things besides just using the hydrabarrier.
After testing the hydrabarrier, I have ordered additional barriers for each of my entryways. The cost is between $500 and $1000, but this is much less expensive than tearing out and replacing drywall, appliances and furniture. And, the barriers are reusable. I'm satisfied with the results of my testing and am confident that the use of the barriers WITH the wedges, as well as other waterproofing best practices, l will remain reasonably dry when the next storm hits. I hope this helps you decide whether or not the hydrabarrier will work for you. In my opinion, there are not many alternatives out there.
Note to MFG: For the longer units it would be extremely helpful if you could add a 2 fill/drain port on both ends. It would make the draining and 'drying' much faster after the storm. This is not a complaint and is overall a minor issue. I would definitely purchase again.
