11/2 vs 13/4 hose for attack line
We are currently using 1 3/4 atack lines. The department is looking at replaceing a large portion of our old hose. We are hearing of alot of departments going back to 1 1/2 hose for attack lines. What we are hearing is that with todays new nozzles, you are able to get about the same amount of water out of a 1 1/2 as what you would get out of a 1 3/4. We are looking at 1 1/2 for the ease of getting around in a building, and that it is eaiser for the guys to use since we have less manpower to begin with. Anybody have any thoughts or information on this?
