Imagine a forklift has a 5 inch diameter piston. The piston has a surface area of 19.63 cubic inches. This means that with just 100 psi, it can lift just under 2000 lbs. That's the power of pressure ;)

What they made in the video is basically and extreme water rocket with a constant flow. Not sure what country that was in but as a taxpayer, I would rather see firefighters fight fires.
