Chemical Hose on Water Lines Saves Work

Chemical Hose on Water Lines Saves Work

E. A. McGranahan, chief of the Wheeling, W. Va., fire department, furnishes the following information concerning the use of chemical hose on ordinary water lines:

“In our department we do not carry any smaller hose than the 2 1/2-inch, except the 3/4-inch chemical hose. I have taken the tip of a 1 1/8-inch nozzle and had threads cut on it, with a ring to protect the threads, and when we are cleaning up at a fire, or have an inside fire, we lay in our 2 1/2-inch hose, put on the 1 1/8-inch nozzle, take the ring off the tip, get one or two sections of 3/4-inch hose, and screw it on the tip.”
