Right, we are finally getting to see the jets. That was speculated as the comet degassing mechanism 50 years ago. Yeah, that's awesome.

Isn't it past perigee? Let me check
<edit> Perigee is August 13. So bright jets near maximum solar heating makes sense.

I had a guy pull that on me at the loading area where my storage unit was.
I was waiting 15 minutes for the spot.

I would have loved to haul his car into the middle of Northern Blvd.

psst... perigee refers to lowest point in a geocentric orbit. I believe you mean perihelion. :p

oh, we knew what he meant
Fine and my apologies for not remembering the right term.
OK, that Nebia shower head website is lacking detail. The only materials information available that's worth noting is that much of the thing is made from anodized aluminum. That's bad when its connected to copper or galvanized steel plumbing. The aluminum will corrode quickly from galvanic corrosion. Unfortunately my other questions were not answered from viewing their site. I suggest not buying one of these just yet. Give them a few years to fix their corrosion issues.

Hell, I'm giving them a few years to get the price down.

They should call it the Labia shower head. Just because that would be funnier, and because I'm immature.

A bit of PVC between the shower head and the copper pipe?
In an emergency, break this glass to get the tool that breaks other glass...

Yeah, but the conductivity of the water will reduce the effectiveness of that trick. The length of PVC necessary to fully prevent galvanic corrosion might be significant. I'll gather the data and provide an estimated pipe length calculation later.

I mean, hell; my whole house is plumbed with PVC.
It's the fastest and easiest DIY plumbing.
Okaaaay, then if there's at least several feet to the next metal object, I'd say your safe. ;)
Ya know, PVC is a water hammer risk right? Sudden catastrophic leaks is not a good thing.

No, PEX is.

Ya know, I've actually been meaning to start a thread about PEX v PVC ...

Ah, a chart that was made by an idiot, very random.

I'm positive Heinlein was influenced by star wars when he wrote Starship Troopers... 20 years earlier.

Also, the adorable mascot robot
Also, the film trilogy

I'll let someone else pick up from here.
