    Default Installing a Foam Pro system

    Has anybody installed a Foam Pro 1600 on a pumper? My department is currently in the process of getting pricing for such a system. We are a volunteer department and do not have a lot of money available to have a shop install it, so we will be doing most of the work. We have investigated the possibility of running foam to our existing cross lays, but we would have to do some major re-plumbing to get the straight length of pipe needed for the flow meter.We decided to install a bumper line which will be the only line that will have foam. It will be a 3 inch line from the pump to the bumper. Then we will put a gated 2 1/2 inch wye with a reducer to hook up an 1 3/4 inch attack line. The reasoning for the 3 inch line is to have the flow capacity available at the bumper discharge. Is there anything else that we should be looking at for this installation?

    We looked at installing a Foampro as a retrofit, much like you're doing. The cost was prohibitive. The best quote we could get was over $10,000. For the one line you're talking about, consider using an eductor instead. Much more feasible and practical. They cost less than $300.
    Remember, it IS as bad as you think and they ARE out to get you!

    We had a 1600 FoamPro installed for $6000 total. Plumbed to two crosslays. System works great for class a foam.
