Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About
I don't feel like I know enough on the subject to make definitive statements for or against the theory that the EXTERNAL pressure at 6ft would create difficulty in inhaling non-compressed air, but it certainly sounds plausable.
The re-breathing of CO2 and resistance of the hose issues are easily enough to get around, as has been discussed before.
The garden hose in the pool while 16 years old is a decent experiment. To prove the theory I'd want to see a lot less resistance though. Some hoses are 1/2" inside diameter, and unless it was a cut length, you were trying to pull it a long way...
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
