Re: Gerdesj: Dry water mist fire extinguisher

"Sounds like an interesting idea, but it it not clear how that would improve on the CO2 fire extinguisher concept"

The dry water thing is safe with nearly all fire types found in the home. CO2 will blast a paper fire across the room for example. So you need foam and CO2 and know which one to pick. I never specify a water extinguisher - someone will try to use it on an electrical fire - it is the way of things. for the sales spiel.
