Hose Play

This is what it looks like when you burst a hose line 4 stories up in the drill tower and all the water comes back down the stairs.


Okay. Maybe not quite. But it was a lot of water to walk through trying to figure out where the burst was. Stupid hose.

2" hose. It just failed mid section. And we just did hose testing 2 weeks ago. It did look kind of cool.

That's pretty odd, have the powers that be considered having the failure analyzed? I worked at a place about 30 yrs ago that used a synthetic rubberized 2" hose, I hated it, too hard to grip.

The powers that be don't care that much. They just want it replaced and back in service.

Rubberized hose would be tough to handle. I'm glad we've made some progress.
