ever since it has been added i have never once seen it used for anything other than griefing and generally making people's lives a pain. why do we keep it around?
>the janitor needs it
there are plenty of water tanks around for him to use.
>just set the air alarms to scrub it
>just crowbar the tiles up
>just perma whoever opens it
yes these are valid solutions but pain-in-the-ass busywork like this is usually balanced by at least a few pro's in favor of it, which i legitimately cannot think of. if its only me that's being constantly annoyed by it then ill go back to my corner but it really just seems like a tool made and used solely for griefing.

It's actually a clown tool. We just keep it in the janitorial closest so it can be close to its intended use area.

it cleans the floors, if you open it on low pressure it will wet for only a short while and do it's thing, useful for laughter and slaughter demons.

I wish we had a water vapor miner in atmos that we could use for flooding the station!

A new admin TC traded a traitor for one of those once not knowing how atmos worked fully. He supercooled it and dumped it into distro, quickly making the entire station into a frozen hellscape not seen since the days of freon floods.

so no, water vapor miners would be a bad idea. It is deadlier than plasma flooding.

Just add a normal water vapor tank

More interesting than a plasma flood but also can run out eventually, especially if you cool it
