    Default Anyone using a Waterous S100 pump?

    Does anyone have a piece of apparatus with the new Waterous S100 pump. How do you like it? Pros and cons? Tell me more.
    Thanks and be safe. FGN

    Default s100

    Bump

    we have an s100 and it works great, just like all Waterous Pumps
    Never a problem ...........
    it is on our rear mount rescue pumper, with controls on the driver side.
    powers 2 200 foot midship speedlays, w foam; a 2 1/2 preconnected Blitzfire with foam , and has 2 regular 2/1/2 discharges and a 4' LDH discharge.

    Never a problem shifting in and out of pump.
    Only thing I can say, its seems to heat the 650 gallon tank water a little quicker than our midship pumper.

    I think the heating is a side-effect of using a pedestral (i.e. not full cast body) pump, not just an S100 issue. Our Rosenbauer NH and Hale DSD both warm the water quickly as well since we don't have the huge heatsink that is the big casting of a full body pump to absorb some of the heat generated. There is nowhere near the "mass" of metal in the plumbing...

    In my experience, a thermal relief valve is a great idea with this style of pump.
