MythBusters Lauch Waterheater like a Rocket

What happens when you try to raise the PSI (Water Pressure) of a water heater?  Yeah, you guessed it it launches like a rocket!

The gang over at MythBusterswondered what would happen if you raised the PSI of a water heater. So they built a small house using building California standards, just to see exactly what would explode and how a house would hold up if a water heater exploded.

Check out this video yourself to see what happened.  Mythbuster Water Heater Test

Then as a follow up experiment they took a larger water heater, raised the PSI to double before it launched.  They also placed explosive shock stickers by the site to see what type of explosion it would register.  Take a look at the resultsMythbuster Rocket Water Heater

The results are amazing.  Its scary just what a water heater can do to a house if the PSI raises more then it should.
