    In France and Belgium we use DSP (french wikipedia Raccord symétrique Guillemin http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccord_Guillemin). We carry a few DSP-Storz connectors in our engine because we find some Storz couplings in old high rises and boats. We do use Storz for very LDH (3000 gpm (12000lpm) over a distance of 2 miles at a pressure of 150psi (10bar)) as you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8YtWImh2Iw

    Our attacklines are all donut rolls but more and more departments are using all types of way to fold hose (Z and O type). The idea is to do away with the booster reel in the long run and go interior with a high flow attack line.

    I believe that the German centered countries use Storz for attack lines. I have no idea about what they use in the UK.

    Btw, if you need a European feel free to PM me.

    So, reading this, it comes down to this....

    Those that have actually used Stortz on attack lines state they have had none of the problems mentioned by those that have never actually used them. Those that have not actually used such a setup suggested some possible issues, that those who used the setup have not found to happen.

    National Standard Thread. hmmm, another national standard that isn't a true standard item......
    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    But if course, that would never happen.
    The storz coupling on an 1 3/4" is generally, or at least in our case, was made of lightweight aluminum, and was not much heavier than a "traditional" coupling.

    They also were not much larger and created no problems in loading onto a hosebed.
