It’s Critical to Know Your
Flow. You must pick a hose and nozzle that fits your department.
I personally like the 7/8 for 3 and 4 person Engine Companies that primarily fight house fires. The 7/8 gets you 150 GPM, with 60+ feet of reach, at only 60 lbs of nozzle reaction. When you think in terms of Gallons Per Second and the nozzle flowing 2.5 GPS and your able to Flow as you go; this is putting more water on the FIRE/in the building, than 185 or 3 GPS, if the nozzle firefighter has to gate/shut down frequently. To really test what works and how much water you can throw; you need to use a flow meter and track the flow while an attack crew pushes into the drill
REALISTIC Attack evaluation for a REALISTIC F I R E!!!
