I haven't worked with inflatable barriers either. But I not sure that they are
a good choice for a rather long time like two years.
Most of the applications that I have read about where emergency or temporary
applications. According to the impression that the literature gave me , they
may be highly vulnerable to damage and need more maintenance than the old
fashion earth dam.
