Coat a room and furniture with this stuff and then cause a flashover condition. If anything can survive that, I will be a believer.

Most old CO2 systems have had to be updated to this new stuff in the last 10years because of new fire codes. We have 2 bottles full of this stuff in my Restauant kitchen. When we updated, the cost was $800 bucks for adding 2 presurized bottles. What they dont tell you is, if you use it and needs to be refilled and certified, cost is $300 for the product and $300 to do a hydo test on it, might as well by new 1.

I was told the natual product is old school baking soda. If you want to do a test, buy 2 gallon pail/ or 25lbs. of baking soda from a bulk store or co-op, mix with water/add it to your pressure washer, they say it works the same but a lot cheeper.
