Thoughts on water curtains??
What is everyone's thoughts on how effective water curtains can be when used to protect exposures. We recently did a controlled burn with a detached garage about 30 feet from the structure we burned. We set up a water curtain to help protect it, but standing behind the curtain I could still feel a fair amount of heat. We also used a hand line to keep the garage wet and had no problems. I tried to explain to others on the dept. that I did not feel the water curtain was very effective except for keeping the garage wet. It did not seem to do much at all for radiant heat.
