Here is a quick drill for figuring out hose stretches for larger complexes or properties with long set backs. The key is to get out and figure this out long before the call comes in. Share and add your own information to it.
Company Drill for EHT Hose Stretch
I like to work on identifing two key distances 100' and 200' set backs (when dealing with residential structures). I find that it is easier to look at something and say that is under/over 100' etc. We run 200' and 300' preconnects, so if the set back is over 100' we pull the 300' line and if the set back is over 200' we set up a leader line. This insures that we have a min of a 100' working length. This works best on residetials but certain aspects can translate over to commercial and apartment units.
