Talk:Twisted Flex Joints
Do we really need the intro about numbers of house fires etc on the Fire section? The conclusion that twisted joints *caused* some of these sounds rather hard to backup with any authority since these things are by their nature rather "fuzzy".
I feel that sometimes the unquantifiable "opinion" bit can get in the way of the technical advice which is sound.
If the Fire section started at "To be reliable, any electrical connection has to be gas-tight. This means that ambient oxygen must not get between the metal " it would have as much impact, without being preachy.
What do you think?
