Just found this video, I had heard it does not conduct electricity, but having watched this it is still weird seeing it done.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISON

it may not be conductive, but it's still water and it will cause damage like rust i think

I think this is an invalid test as even normal water would not show an effect in this configuration

How Safe Is the SHOWER HEAD OF DOOM?! - Bing video

However, do NOT try any of these experiments at home

Worth saying again: do NOT try this.

Watched the video, the shower thing is safe, but i wouldn't want to use it, too much fucking about with wiring, and 19amp draw, yikes.

Normal water does conduct electricity, if he did the same test in my video with tap water it would blow the lamp..

I am VERY uncomfortable with the original video as someone may try as a result.

If the guy was not grounded he could touch the 220V line without effect; so the video proves nothing but may lead to injury or even death.

I beg of you to remove the original posting.

knowing the world out there, i would say i wouldn't put my hands in the fire, some kid or some idiot wouldn't miss the point and try this.

That video is publicly posted on youtube, i am sure if Goole deemed it dangerous to kids, it would have been removed.

actually
deionised water are not conductive
same as distilled water

the water we know that are conductive are because of the ion particles floating around in water, those carry electricity
so its become conductive

even deionised water will slowly get conductive as the water picks up the ions and particles from the conductors around them

Also the hydrogen and oxygen molecules hold onto their electrons so there are none spare, hence it does not conduct electricity. If it is in your water loop long enough, it will pick some up from the metal so would start to conduct electricity.

Just weird seeing it done that's all

Exactly! so this guy proved nothing, but rather is putting people in danger.

it is kinda trippy to see that
but i can assure you it is save

even if water conducts electricity
i will need a whole lot of voltage to become deadly
as water has a high enough resistance, and your skin also has some resistance in it

This is very dangerous. Lets see him try that again after a few days have passed and those items are soaked there.

Clean deionized water may not be conductive but if you introduce other particles to it - that changes the narrative.

the original purpose of the video is to show deionised water is not conductive
which is true

whether its let sit there for a while or not
that is a subject for a different video i guess

Exactly! so this guy proved nothing, but rather is putting people in danger.
that guy proved that deionised water is non conductive
and not dangerous
i dont see any problems with that actually

Come on, that's a bit exaggerated. So we should ban science classes, YouTube and other platforms, books about chemistry and so on as well? It might give them dangerous ideas, ooh my... There will always be people that take it too far, don't read/listen, and most important of all, don't take precautions. Now I agree that the video is quite bad, but that shouldn't mean we mass spam the report button so that it's taken down. He doesn't have a lot of followers and thus reach. There won't be many people seeing it anyway. Wanna learn something? Try Electroboom :D

Yes, I did quote electro-boom above; quite the goofball, but he knows his stuff.
Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law versus Faraday’s Law: the Conclusion - Bing video

There is also an interview where he confesses he would have killed himself were it not that the wires were weak.
Life Lessons from electroBOOM! - DON'T PLAY WITH HIGH VOLTAGE! (Mehdi Sadaghdar Interview) - #41 - Bing video
I believe that proves my point.

I humbly request the moderators remove this thread.

Go report the video on youtube and leave my thread alone if it offends you. I'm sure you are the only person on TPU who is remotely offended by this.

I wish I could do that, but people can get hurt.
