hehehe mythbusters did that in a smaller amount. big boom. but they also did it with something else that provoked more of a reaction then sodium, but i can't remember what it was.257WbyMag said:Okay, I can no longer resist...the absolute worst thing that you can put in a pool is...
A 200 pound block of 100% pure metallic elemental sodium.
That would be bad.
I'll bet that Richard could top my suggestion though.
now that you mentioned gasoline, i would agree that probably would be the worst. if memory serves there is a chemical added to gas, MTB(??) maybe that gets in to the groundwater and permanently pollutes it, no way to remove it. guess you'd be draining and refilling plus changing filter medium plus i'd be very concerned about it leaching in to the piping/liner/filter/etc.257WbyMag said:In all seriousness though, the things that under normal pool circumstances, I would consider the be the worst for introducing in a pool would be just about any hydrocarbon or a big bunch of fertilizer. Gasoline seems to me to be something that would really be tough to deal with, even more so than straight up oil.
My first thought was that you were on to something, and then I realized not only would she be in the pool, but how would I get her outTimS said:
