I liked it better with the graphics, put them back on.

Good day to clean out and straighten up, so I did. Mounted Blue Streak in bath, secured H2O softner in compartment, fixed Dish tripod legs, removed unused items from bay, secured ladder and handrail for rear deck, mounted towel bar on bath door, and added quick connect water hook up with water flow meter.

Be careful with Halon. It will displace oxygen and can kill occupants. Mostly banned now.

Not banned, just not produced anymore. Yes, it can kill but there has never been a documented case of that happening. It's a lot less dangerous than the fire it's putting out.

Used to have to go through annual training for its use. A 6 foot circle of gasoline burning on the ground (in a contained ring) can be extinguished in less than two seconds. The only time I ever used it for real was to put out a car engine fire (not mine) and it worked with three blasts of less than one second each.

Three second discharge of Halon 1211 is definitely not dangerous to your health...unless you discharged it directly into your mouth.

Halon production was stopped on January 1, 2000 because it is an ozone depleter and contributes to the green house effect. Halon has bromine, a deadly gas used in fumagation in it's makeup.
It is never safe to use Halon in residential applications, but you do as you please, my intention is only to let others know of its dangers.

I think the dangers of Halon are an urban legend. I dug up this section of my old training manuals:

Halons are low-toxicity, chemically stable compounds that have been used for fire and explosion protection from early in the last century. Halon has proven to be an extremely effective fire suppressant. Halon is clean (i.e., leaves no residue) and is remarkably safe for human exposure. Halon is a highly effective agent for firefighting in closed passenger carrying areas. Due to its effectiveness and relatively low toxicity, the FAA continues to recommend or require Halon extinguishers for use on commercial aircraft.

Extensive toxicity evaluations have been compiled by nationally recognized United States medical laboratories and institutions on Halon 1301 and Halon 1211. These evaluations have shown that Halon 1301 and Halon 1211 are two of the safest clean extinguishing agents available. Dual Halon concentrations of about 5% by volume in air are adequate to extinguish fires of most combustible materials. This concentration is equivalent to emptying twelve 2.5 lb. units in a closed room of 1000 cubic feet, which would be highly unlikely.

It is the only extinguisher agent that inhibits the chemical chain reaction of fire instead of removing one of the parts of the fire tetrahedron that other extinguishers do.

I washed it in my house to put out a fire. Only time people could get hurt is in high end computer rooms in Corp. They rolls the room.
