We have run multiple tests, used them in the field and it is obvious that low pressure nozzles have advantages. Looking for your opinions. Who is running with 50psi fog or 75psi fog nozzles with breakaway smooth bore? What is your smooth bore diameter?
We are almost set to go 150gpm at 50psi fog, break away with 7/8" tip.
My only big concern is hose kinking. We staff with 4, so if one is at the hydrant, this leaves an officer plus nozzleman, I am not convinced that two persons will be able to manage the kinks, or maybe they will. What do you think?
Should we go 150gpm at 75psi in order to reduce the kinks, even if it increases nozzle reaction?
Hmmm, these are my sticking points. ANY HELP?
Oh by the way we are looking to replace automatic TFT's.
