I remember the day I created a 3 inch in diameter ball of knotted hair on the top of my head from a powerful pumb. Some of you may have seen the story about the little girl who was disemboweled by a pool filtration system. Here: http://www.twincities.com/allheadlines/ci_6293513
I am curious to know if there is the ability to create better systems with sensors that would shut down so that accidents like this don't happen.
Here are some other articles that talk about this problem.
