Home Fire Pump set up
This is my Home Fire Pump set up. It has 5 nozzels on different hoses. About 700 ft of hose here. 3 are for fast take out you can grab and run. 2 are for remote areas futher away. I also have a set up at the shop you can grab and run to the pump for hook/up and go to the small barn for the sprinklers on there roofs or nozzel use at those buildings. They have another 500 ft of 1 1/2 inch hose for use. This is all ran off my 5 1/2 hp 120 gal a min Gasoline pump hooked to the 6,000 gal storage tank which is also fed off the well for refilling it. I have about 3,000.00 invested into this system but the insurance company paid haft during the last big fire. This included the tank and installing it underground. Might be a little over kill but makes you feel better you can fight back when mother nature gets mad! The nozzels can spray 40 to 95 gal per min of water and spray a stream out to around 60 ft. plus! You can wet down the place real fast when you need it. Mark H.
