    1 3/4" line gets 15/16 tip.
    2 1/2" line gets 1 1/8 tip.

    Minimum flow of 180 gpm is our target.

    Perhaps you could find some past information on the forums using the search engine.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! here we go again


    Unfortunately my dept. uses TFT tips on all our 2" lines. We do however use solid bore on our 2 1/2 with a 1 1/8 tip. Those TFT's I don't particularly like and make me glad I am in the Truck.

    Well...at least this question beats the other posts that seem to me to be an advertisement for his company. At least that is the way I read it.

    Does FDNY use more than one tip on their nozzles. I thought I remember seeing that they use a 15/16 tip and a 1/2" tip for overhaul. Are there more tips used on a 2 1/2" line?
