When the Water Heater goes boom! – Video
Myth Busters took a water heater to the limit and created a lethal rocket! A 52 gallon water heater generated an astonishing 100G of force. That is 5 times what a pilot feels when they eject from a jet fighter. A fun video to watch and another reason to take water heater installation, repair and maintenance very seriously. I even checked my heater after I watched this video.
