    No impact on the environment, as long as you hit the buck will ALL the shot.

    I have the excessive flow "fuses" at the shutoffs to my gas appliances. Out of curiosity, I tested them during installation and they do close with wide-open flow. Haven't had one trip yet.

    Has anyone had nuisance tripping with them?

    Another thing you can add to prevent things going boom in the night is to add an automatic earthquake shutoff. Probably more likely here in CA than in DC, though.

    To quote Ronald Reagan, "It came out of the ground, it can go back into the ground"...
