No repair kit .......makes it worthless when you have a leak, and do expect one given the nature of the material to make these.

I've never written a review before, this is the first. I purchased 5 of these ranging from $29 to ~$100 a piece depending on length of these barriers. You would think the company would have the common courtesy to include a repair kit and a hose attachment given the price of these things.....nope, they used to, but no longer. Now, they shortchanged their customers, to save a few bucks? Bad for business. Luckily, I used to own a waterbed and had a hose attachment that fit this, otherwise, it would be a nightmare filling this thing without the attachment. One of my started to leak, not even sure what punctured it, and I'm having to order a glue on Amazon and wait another 5 days while we could be potentially flooded again. Not good to have to deal with the stress The difference between getting your house flooded and not because a tube of glue the company feel they can save is ridiculous. BTW, these barriers do not stay in place like it shows in the picture. They roll off away from the garage door when you fill it with water. Not a big deal if you don't need it to fit snuggly to the house. But if you do, know that you will have to purchase additional cinder blocks or some sand bags to hold it in place or it won't fit snuggly against any walls or door structures. This could potentially be a good product, but the two important items they short changed, the repair kit and hose attachment made it two stars. I do hope the company can at least offer that to be purchased along with their barriers so their customers are not left with a crisis and frustrations on their hand. Think flood, your house is fixing to be flooded, you are already stressed enough. You purchased a product to prevent that, hoping it gets here in time, it does.......except now you need a special attachment to fill this thing with and you have to worry about not having the proper kit to fix a leak, and do expect them. These kinds of details are what makes a purchase well worth it or with regret.
