    Default Pump pressure charts using Excel

    Does anyone have a Excel file that they are willing to share or that they have used to put together a frictionloss/pump pressure style chart? I am gathering all of the flow ratings, Friction loss figures for our current hose, water system figures, etc for our response area. I'm just looking for some examples of laying out the chart. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Is it just me or do you have the pressures reversed for the 15/16 and the 1 inch smoothbore for your 2 inch lines?

    Looks like I did!....Thanks Bro....repairs underway!!!


    OK. I just redid the whole darn thing. A few sloppy mistakes had some of the numbers pretty out of wack! Must have made this thing after a few beers. Good thing I quit drinking!

    Numbers are rounded up or down based to the nearest 5 PSI. This is nothing more than a generic GUIDE. Different hose has different characteristics. But you get the point.

    Sorry bout that.

    Always a critic in every crowd!!

    I expected no less from some here...But since I know it is the most beautiful engine in the entire world I am not bothered in the least!!

    By the way we did talk about putting one 888 in the center above the grill just below the windshield.

    If anyone wants to share theirs on the web, I can host them on my site, or on my department's site. If anyone is willing to share with the world, shoot them to me in an email.

    Bump...Could some people send me their charts...I'm going to laminate them and put them in the compartment near the pump panel, but I'd like a few different ones so I can select the best ones. PM me and I'll send you my email.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    Here is my Dept's: EDIT>>> Link not longer working, If you want one, send me an instant message with your e-mail address and I'm get it to you.

    We only have 1", 2", and 4" hose. There is a listing for underpumping the Akron Turbojet Nozzles at 55 psi. When set at 200 GPM, and using a 55 psi nozzle pressure, you get 150 GPM.
