Single 6" supply line
500’        2500 GPM
1000’      2500 GPM
1500’      2300 GPM
2000’      2000 GPM

Before deploying the pumping apparatus and the supporting hose evolutions, it is helpful to know how much water is available for the operation. . Will the wter source support multiple handlines, as many as ten if not more? Can fixed master streams be used?
