Hello to all fellow Engineers.
I'm looking for some help on the great debate of Wet vs Dry pumps in the Chicago area.

Pumps ops should be year round, not just spring summer and fall.

Thanks Mike . My department has spec"d E-One's for years, mid-mount Hale pumps. The newer 4 door cab units have 1250 GPM pumps . We are the county Emergency service, so we do a lot of Tanker relays for water supply . I've been a pump operator since the mid-80's .I went through the 4 levels of the Tennessee State fire pump operations classes with Mr Lewis Baker . Our state really lost a Great fire asset when he passed away last year .
