    Does he specifically want a humat or a four way valve? We got a 4-way for around $1000. Not sure of the specifics of the Humat, maybe there's a difference?

    Humat valves allow a water source to be connected, and a discharge to be connected and for water to pass through. Connect up another hose to the intake on a pumper, and another to a discharge, throw the valve, and you can pump the line without stopping water flow.

    We do the same thing with a wye, and a siamese.

    Exactly what our $995 4-way valve does. First due engine lays in and drops the valve. It gets connected and the hydrant is opened feeding the engine at the hydrants normal pressure. The second or third due engine (depending on assignment) connects to the valve to boost the pressure. No interupption of flow at any time!
