    We are flowing 26gpm through the 3/4" .... 50gpm through 1" .... and we average around 80gpm through the low-pressure lay-flat hose-lines when pulsing or bursting droplets. Obviously there are strict limitations in using these low flows and they are not at all suited to direct streams on heavy fire loads. I know firefighters in Oregon who are using flows around 125gpm to pulse droplets effectively.
