Why are many shower hoses “explosion proof”?

1

I noticed that many shower hoses are advertised as "explosion proof". Since I have never seen a shower head with a tap on it, I'd think the hose has to withstand only a fraction of the pressure that the regular plumbing would be required to withstand. Off course it has to be allot more flexible, but "explosion proof" seems to me quite an exaggeration.

Even if a shower head clogs up to the extent that the pipe would burst, it would not be called an explosion would it? My guess is that this is a marketing thing that has been copied by different brands and merely means that the pipe will not bust in the way a balloon would.

Is there any rational reason or circumstance where one should prefer an "explosion proof" hose instead of one that has no mention on the package of being "explosion...

Dust ignition-proof can mean two things: That only the device used to power the unit will not generate a spark to ignite dust, such as an explosion-proof motor or a venturi on an air vac, or that the entire vacuum needs to be built so that there is no possibility of generating a spark from both internal and external sources. That said, all air vacs are dust ignition proof at the venturi, but not necessarily so inside the vacuum where clouds of combustible dust accumulate. Those clouds can be ignited if a metal object, like a nut, bolt, washer, scrap, etc. impacts the inside of a steel drum or any metal component inside the vacuum (filter caps, metal rings, steel intakes, etc.) unless the inside of the vacuum has been made to prevent this from happening. Even if the vacuum is grounded, a piece of metal sucked into the vacuum can generate a spark and ignite the dust...

Most leaks occur without surfacing. Many that do "show" will surface a distance away from where the leak is. In most areas of the USA, the water lines are run 2-4 feet below the surface, depending on the temperature extremes. Call a reputable leak detection company. The price for this varies from region to region. In Cincinnati, for example, the going rate is $350. The process is somewhat involved, but includes adding nitrogen or compressed air to your system, then listening to your line to find the leak. Then, they'll double check those results by adding helium and tracing it with an electronic helium detector. If you have an interior leak, the process is more involved as you are working with a concrete...

What causes low water pressure in my shower?

Low water pressure usually results when you've been forced to turn on two different plumbing fixtures at the same time, whether they are the outside garden hose, the kitchen/bathroom sink, the toilet, or even the shower. Although your water pressure may be sufficient when only one fixture is operational, you'll definitely notice a drop in water flow when the second fixture comes into use.

In most cases low water pressure affects you in many other areas around the house. If low water pressure is affecting only your shower head, you should check for an obstruction in the shower head or see if your shower head has a water conservation filter installed.

Otherwise when demand for water is high (such as in the morning or early evenings) pressure can be lower than during the rest of the day. There can also be problems during dry spells when people use hosepipes or sprinklers to water their gardens.

Window unit, LG. 8,000 It was spitting water 3 feet out. Making a terrible, constant noise. Wasn't cooling....The Problem was built up debris inside the fan housing.Not easy to see, because it's caked on the sides where the fan has been pushing it. Plus loose leaves, small sticks,etc...Cleaned that out. Works like new. You'll have to take it out of the window and take off the housing case to get to the fan housing inside.But it's worth the effort. Runs like new. Mine is two years old. But under some pretty messy crepe myrtles.I May put some screen over the top to keep debris from fall in. Finally, quiet and cold. Thought I'd never get here. I got rid of one doing the same thing. Now I've taught myself something. Remember to unplug it before you do anything. And you enter at your own...

For starters, I want to mention that the thing is excellently manufactured. At these times it’s not easy to find something of suitable quality for such a low price. The material is good and strong so in my opinion the product can serve you long enough. Personally I consider it one of the most important traits in products of this kind. On the web, often there are lots of products for a considerable price but the quality often turns out to be so so. In that context, it’s pointless keeping in mind its price.

I should also say that the the stuff is really comfortable. In my judgment, this trait is one of the first things take into consideration. I once happened to order something good but what turned out to be too inconvenient to use.

Many people also pay attention to the appearance of the item. I think many people would agree, the given merchandise looks good though I’m not so good at this.

In contrast with other similar things I came across on...

“They don’t need a bath every day,” my friend Debbie informed me shortly after we moved to Deutschland with two young children in tow. She referred me to a bit of German wisdom about bathing frequency, suggesting that babies and young children need to be thrown in the tub only once or twice a week. My American husband — known to shower twice a day — was horrified, but I kowtowed to peer pressure and hid the bubble bath.

The water bills plummeted, no one got sick or lice and my youngest, who had suffered from a bit of eczema, stopped developing her itchy rash. Recently, Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf urged us to take showers instead of baths, for water conservation reasons. While it’s unclear which uses more water (so much depends on water pressure), one thing is certain: We’d save even more if we just hung up the towel. Why not just turn off the tap?

Americans, while perhaps the cleanest, are the worst offenders.

When it comes to water consumption, some of us...

If you take a shower in the morning instead of at night, you’re doing it all wrong. If you’re fancy, and take a shower in the morning and at night, then stop reading this, because it doesn’t concern you. And this isn’t about afternoon showering either, because if you just had a hellish soccer practice or wrestled a rotten pumpkin, you should shower regardless of the time.

We want to talk to those lunatics who think taking a shower in the morning is better than taking a shower at night. What’s your problem? Why would you want to shower in the morning? Night showers are better, and we have 15 reasons that prove it.

1. It saves time in the morning. And you can use this extra time to sleep longer, finish homework, bake a ham for breakfast, or take a quick trip to the aquarium to watch the dolphins wake up (they're so cute when they’re groggy).

2. Night showers are relaxing and they help ease your mind, resulting in lovely dreams of ice cream rivers and trains that...

To understand what is meant by explosion proof, we must look at the context of the term and the organization that defined it. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) began publishing the National Electric Code (NEC®) in 1897. The NEC® is also known as NFPA 70 and ANSI/NFPA 70 from its inclusion in the body of NFPA codes.

The NEC® includes definitions for several types of protection techniques acceptable when designing products for use in hazardous (classified) locations: Explosion proof, dust ignition proof, dust tight, purged/pressurized, intrinsically safe, and hermetically sealed. These definitions set the criteria that must be met by all components installed in hazardous (classified) locations.

To meet the criteria for the explosion proof rating, an enclosure must be able to contain any explosion originating within its housing and prevent sparks from within its housing from igniting vapors, gases, dust, or fibers in the air surrounding it. Therefore,...

Q: I’m a grower not a shower. When hard, my penis isn’t huge and it’s big enough to get the job done, but when I’m not hard it’s pretty small…like really small. This dilemma makes me extremely nervous and shy about having sex with girls for the first time, and the simple solution would be to not let girls see my dick when it’s not hard…but sometimes a girl’s touch is required to get it hard in the first place. Do you have any tips for dealing with this situation?

A: So one thing you could do is explain that you’re a shower and not a grower, but I don’t recommend that because no one wants a lecture about dicks when you’re trying to get hot and heavy. Your best option is probably to embrace “dry humping,” aka “hump her with your pants on until you’re hard.” Granted, it’s not sexy to hump her like a dog for 20 minutes until your boner decides to show up for the party, so I can see how this also isn’t...

The amount, location and uses of pumps onboard a boat can be staggering at times. A modern 43' powerboat may have more than a dozen pumps. Go2marine carries a massive selection of boat pumps for most applications.

Diaphragm Pumps:

These pumps are a positive displacement pump. The term diaphragm refers the membrane over the chamber. The internal design is a chamber with an entry and exit that have one way valves on them. As the membrane is flexed outward, the chambers volume is increased, drawing in the liquid through the valved entry. When the membrane is flexed in, the chamber volume is reduced and expels the water out of the valved exit....
