Hello Alls Seniors Firefighter, I have a problem, I hope you can give an idea or thought wise.
I want to buy a used nozzle sizes 1.5, hose while I have a size of 2.5". I had the idea to modify it so that it can be installed nozzle coupling (machino) size of 2.5 ".
My concern that, if the water can run smoothly? whether there will not be any problems to the coupling connection, or a problem with the hose due to high water pressure loads due nozzle intended for 1.5 "?
I had to rack my brain because there is no hardware store fire in my place. the store is only available outside of the island and the price is not cheap too expensive plus postage.
Difficult to get a donors, so I had bought with my own money and was only able to buy used/second goods.
in my station just have oldest model tipe nozzle, it's long brass for 60-80cm.
Please give me ideas. Thank You
Frans, where are you located and what type of threads does your hose have?
