FD Hose Strainer Research Project

$775 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 6 months
GBW Associates, LLC and Water Supply Innovations, LLC are raising money to conduct a research project on fire department suction hose strainers.  Both companies specialize in water supply innovations for fire protection and both companies have years of experience in training, design, and consulting.  The research project involves the flow testing of more than 20 types of suction hose strainers used by fire departments across North America.  The results of the flow tests will be published in a report and videos will be loaded to the GotBigWater YouTub Channel.

A number of folks are volunteering their time and equipment to complete the testing on September 30, 2017, our funding request covers operating expenses during the day of testing. None of the funds will be used for participant compensation.

Which flows the best? Hmmm...
