Here's my plan: When the time come that I have reduced water flow or performance from my AC system, first, I will check and clean the strainer on the intake. If that doesn't correct the problem, I will consult the installation and owners manual that came with the system. I believe it has a troubleshooting section.

I don't know much about the risk from those energetic little bubbles Motion, but you might want to do some homebrew experiments first.

Or, you could just pretend that chemistry and physics don't exist. That's why I smoke three packs of Camels every day. My Grandpa lived to be 90 going through a couple of bags of Bull Durham a day, so I don't hold no truck with those who think smoking might be bad for you. My lungs look fine to me.

Greetings,
OK Mr. Rick B. What is it face-gear-wise here? Underwater, a-la lab or maybe....

It looks like some kind of new design space helmet to me ... might be useful around the a/c overboard after tossing a couple of bromine tabs in the sea strainer though.
