    What kind of question is this?

    "it depends on what the room is made of"

    is the ONLY answer. If the weight of the water is greater than the structural integrity of the weakest point on the room (windows, doors, or even the floor) then you won`t manage to fill it. Otherwise, you will.

    That happened to my old house. We had bought a new house and had no one living there. The toilet sprang a leak and eventually the whole second floor collapsed. Good thing we had home owners insurance, because the insurance company practically rebuilt the entire house new, and furnished it for a $500 deductible. We were freaking out until we knew we were covered.

    It`s far more an east/west difference than US/Canada. In the eastern states and from Ontario east (though not Newfie), people built and still build with what was traditional in Europe. Out west there was wood in almost endless quantities and towns had to go up fast in the early days. It set the standard up til today.

    True dat. As a European living in Canada, I have to avert my eyes every time I see a house under construction. The knowledge that my own house is fundamentally made from f*cking plywood is disturbing to me in the extreme.

    "Waste of water. "

    The only possible way we could `waste` water is by sending it out into space and not getting it back. We may make it dirty, but it`s super easy to clean it again (google search graphene and its uses in filtration). As long as the water stays on this planet, we can not `waste` it as per the law of conservation of mass and energy.

    "Waste of water" - If you notice the color of the water, it`s brownish. It`s probably pumped from a nearby lake. So no waste of drinking water.

    Jesus, people. Haven`t any of you heard of a condemned house before? And the water was probably pumped in from a lake. All that was wasted here was a bit of diesel fuel to operate the pump.

    "I have found this wonderful image to explain why its not. Its even in bright colors and the sun has a smiley face so the majority of i-a-b can better understand the concepts presented."

    Yet for some strange reason people who live on the coastline don`t drink ocean water. I wonder why that is.

    How about if we rephrase the comment so it`s easier to understand: waste of clean drinking water.

    Its Norway, so the water filling up the room is most likely of a better quality than you average bottle-water! (no kidding! water quality from pipes in Norway is that good! In blind-tests bottle-water usually looses to our tapwater)

    Anyhow, freshwater is so common over here, that wasting a little water wont hurt anyone!

    Btw, that show is pure awesomeness! ;)

    Really? I know I`m late to the party with this comment but I can`t help it. Did you miss the part where salt water is not drinkable because it is...you know...salt? Also, the water only turned brown after filling the room which was probably full of dirt and dust. I wish I lived in Norway and was surrounded by awesome, fresh drinking water.
