I suggest everyone do this test for the higher ups to prove the effectiveness and higher water flow from 2.5 with a smooth bore. The increase in GPMs alone has sold me from the standard of 65 psi in the simulated stand pipe they had 35gpms with 1.75. By changing the hose size, increased to 265gpms with 2.5!
