The Water Eater

Product number: 9011

Soak up condensation in a flash.

The super-absorbent, snake-like Water Eater lies waiting on a windowsill, poised to guzzle up excess water before it causes damage to your wood and paintwork.

Also catches 'seepage' from under outside doors.

Capable of sucking up and locking in nearly 10 times its own body weight in water - and then without wringing out, it air dries in no time at all.

"brilliant"

star star star star star

we use these on our narrowboat, where condensation on windows is inevitable in winter. They absorb all the water yet still feel dry, and saves the lovely woodwork! Worth every penny

"Water Eater"

It works - what more can I say!We have leaky windows when the wind is in one direction and we use water eaters to make sure we dont have puddles on the floor. They are magic.

"Also mouldy"

star star star_border star_border star_border

I bought two of these as we have a large condensation problem (thankfully my landlord is replacing the windows with double glazing). I too left one on the window sill for a couple of days.. and it went mouldy. I have one left which i can still use, but I have to remove it from the window within hours, to let it dry even though it is not fully saturated. I am going away over Christmas for a week and am not sure what I am going to be able to do to stop this problem, as I thought the water eaters would solve it...

"Don't do it!"

This product was fantastic for the first three days. It did exactly what it was suppose to do. However, on the fourth day I noticed it was going mouldy. I, therefore rung it out, cleaned it, dried it, and replaced it on the window cill. Again, within a couple of days it was mouldy. I cleaned and dried it as before. I then had to go on holiday for a week. When I returned it was covered in mould and had stained my window cill.

"Mouldy too!"

I'm afraid I would not recommend this item either.It appears to absorb some moisture (or at least stops it running off the window sill), but doesn't dry out and mould builds up. Both my upstairs windows are now stained with mould which will need repainting to hide.Really disappointed because I thought I had found the answer to our condensation problems.
