It's not dangerous unless you're an idiot and make it dangerous.
J, I believe are exactly right here, āIt's not dangerous unless you're an idiot and make it dangerous.ā
Of course, children and idiots can buy an O2 tank, O2 regulator, plastic air tubing and soaker hose on E-bay for $75 and make a very cheap homemade O2 system. You can bet there are in a few in bass boats on the lake.
These children on U-tube are a fine example: Best Livewell Oxygen System
This U-tube show looks about as dangerous as the BCB Tiger Tank O2 system. The child mentions nothing about pure O2 gas hazards in bass boats, next to oil, batteries and live electric wires and switches in a boat bilge with his homemade O2 system.
I like simplicity how you compare pure oxygen, oxygen enrichment safety to lithium battery explosions and fires, thatās a great comparison and easy to understand. An pure oxygen fire or battery explosion and fire on a boat is no big deal if you have the right kind of fire extinguisher, know how to use it, donāt panic and act quickly.
I remember taking a welding shop class in HS. We were taught all kinds of special safety rules about using pure welding oxygen, oxygen regulators and O2 hose including high pressure oxygen tanks and we had to know and actually practice all those O2 safety rules. We had to learn these rules before we lit-up the welding torch for some odd reason. Learning these silly little safety rules was a big deal back then. Actually I still remember many of those safety rules, those rules stuck for some odd reason.
No disrespect J, but after reading what you have posted, it clear to me that you have had no actual training and you are not even aware about special rules about pure 100% O2 gas safety and O2 tank safety on land or any kind of boat?
Again no disrespect to anyone including J, but after seeing some of these opinions and this U-tube show, it appears O2 safety safety rules do not exist at all with these children that are promoting buying pure O2 equipment and building these simple homemade O2 systems in the garage without any responsible adult supervision that I can see. The appearance of simplicity and lack of O2 gas and O2 tank safety in boat bilges is very obvious, very deceptive and frankly irresponsible IMHO.
I will look for more U-tube shows on this topic later to see what others are promoting and selling to bass fishermen about pure O2 safety, oxygen enriched atmospheres, live electricity, oil contamination, O2 gas tubing leaks at O2 tubing connections in boat bilges on boats.
About those potential O2 gas leaks with tubing in boat bilges ...more O2 tubing splices creates more chances of O2 gas leaks... pure oxygen is heavier that ambient air even inside the boat bilge and boat lockers with closed lids, pure O2 gas will concentrate at the bottom of the bilge which is often oily too. Pure oxygen accumulates and concentrates in the lowest part of the bilge should an O2 tube spring a leak at any connection at any time and that little gas leak fill the bilge with pure 100% oxygen gas without you being aware of this accident. Just another O2 safety matter to consider about building a simple homemade O2 system just in case you did not already know that.
