Sure, everyone does that when they don't have LDH but the original question was about running LDH off the side ports. And one LDH will get you a lot more water than 2 3" with a lot less effort expended.

Yeah, our is due to the fact that only half of our district has hydrants. The first due engines on the hydranted side have 4" supply while the first due on the non-hydranted side lay dual 3" supply. Thanks for all the information in this thread... especially fireh20... practical examples are just what I needed.

We have the first engine stop at the hydrant, forward lay to the fire. If we know a second engine is right behind the first one, then the second in engine drops the line to the first. Unless it is one of the few bad ones we are aware of, we always have more water than what we need from just static pressure of the hydrant. Maybe we are not using "big water" like you either....don't know.
Just curious as to how you do it, thats all. not trying to start a schitt stormJason Knecht
