I noticed that many shower hoses are advertised as "explosion proof". Since I have never seen a shower head with a tap on it, I'd think the hose has to withstand only a fraction of the pressure that the regular plumbing would be required to withstand. Off course it has to be allot more flexible, but "explosion proof" seems to me quite an exaggeration.
Even if a shower head clogs up to the extent that the pipe would burst, it would not be called an explosion would it? My guess is that this is a marketing thing that has been copied by different brands and merely means that the pipe will not bust in the way a balloon would.
Is there any rational reason or circumstance where one should prefer an "explosion proof" hose instead of one that has no mention on the package of being "explosion proof"?
