Whew, glad you were being kind, I'd hate to see you mad

Thanks to Arnold and former BC premier Gordon Campbell, we now have the hydrogen highway, which was supposed to run from California to Whistler ( home of winter Olympics a few years ago ).
Not sure what Arnold did, but we have a couple hydrogen filling stations and a bunch of million dollar hydrogen buses that are for sale cheap.
I got to photograph Arnold and Gordon looking at a hole in the ground while on assignment with Vancouver Sun.

I like alternative energy Glenn, and I think private sector innovation will make it commonplace if not completely replacing most fossil fuels in the future. What I don't like is a nanny state that tells you what you can and cannot buy -- like light bulbs.

It would appear that California's idea of going lead-free was soon adopted by others ... including our friends to the north. Get the lead out, Part II - Plumbing & HVAC: Canada's #1 magazine serving the mechanical trades. Which makes me wonder why, if Canada has the same restrictions, this package labeling exists at all. Perhaps our regulator is from a pre-2014 shipment.

The regulator is made of brass if it's like mine. Like most brass, including the brass in your home faucets, it contains a small amount of lead. As long as it doesn’t leach more than 11 ppb of the metal into the water, its legal and safe - except according to the 'lead free' advocates in California and elsewhere. There is lead in many common household and other items you use every day. The key is the amount. The water coming out of the "lead free" fixtures in California, and in a lot of other places, probably contains MORE than 11 ppb of lead. Didn't come from the faucet, but from the water plant and the mains.

Any word on whether they were able to differentiate between this "hole in the ground" and the other "holes" ( as in he can't tell his @#$ from a hole in the ground) .

Water pressure seems to have pressured this into a political discussion thread...

For me, part of the fun of reading here is to Escape politics.

On the build sheet I see that in the starter kit there is a city water pressure regulator and a 25' water hose. As for the water filter on the sheet is this one that is on the hose outside or is it installed in the plumbing in the trailer? A lot of your pictures show a water filter on the hose outside. Loren

The municipal under ground water lines in my hometown are lead (Both the mains and branch piping) . The same municipality outlawed lead solder (50/50) for potable water piping in buildings because of the health hazards. Makes you wonder ?
