Yes we did look at some, and in the end they would have worked alright. However, the real factor we went with this prodcut was the low GPMs it puts out (I think roughly 10-12GPM....but don't quote me on that). Being an all urban/suburban area, our engines are spec'd with 500 gallon tanks. And even though we are well hydranted, it still takes a significant amount of time wait for the 2nd engine to get on scene, lay in several hundred feet of 5 inch through the rail yard, and establish the water supply.
Makes sense, have you guys used got to use it yet? How does it handle a compartmentalized fire with the low volume of water?
