Hi Everyone,
This year our department is looking at trying to replace hose that is older than I am. I need some help. We hose test everything every year and have had lots of failures. We have taken that hose out of service. My questions are:

I have hose from 1973 that still works has it exceeded its lifespan??

What other items have departments got with hose grants? Nozzles, tools, Blitz guns?

I am trying to get a couple things without going over board. Thanks for the help!
