FAQs

How far can I spray pool water with a FireFighter1 Hose System?

With a standard 2.7HP Variable Speed Pool Pump, Pool water sprays 45 feet+. Pressure does drop when engine cycles, then returns.

 

How many Gallons Per Minute of Pool Water do you get with a FireFighter1 Hose?

We've calculated about 80 GPM with a 2.7HP Standard Variable Speed Pool Pump

 

How Much Water Does a Swimming Pool Have?

In ground swimming pools hold 10,000 - 40,000 Gallons of Pool Water. The average swimming pool has 25,000 Gallons of Valuable Pool Water available. 

 

What do I do when the Water Level Drops Below Skimmer?

Preparing to Drain Pool & Turning off the Skimmer (Helpful YouTube) 

1. Turn Off Your skimmer & Pull Water from Main Drain - Most pools now are designed to redirect flow to the Main Drain at the bottom of the pool when you simply turn off the skimmer. Check out your pool set-up, and plan to turn the skimmer diverter valve off, redirecting flow of water to the bottom drain. If it is not labeled already, Label it once you find out on your pool pump setup. 

 

2. Make Sure You Have a Float Valve Installed - Should be under your skimmer basket to redirect flow of water to the bottom of your swimming pool if the water level drops below the skimmer line. All pool owners should have this valuable tool installed to protect your pool pump from intaking air. If the water level ever drops, it will hopefully save your pump.

  • ALTERNATE OPTION - Use your Vacuum line - Open the Diverter Valve that controls the pool vacuum. Then, close the return lines that normally send water back to the pool and/or the skimmer. (Some systems have two return lines: one that returns water directly to the pool and another to the skimmer.) 
  • ALTERNATE OPTION - Play it safe and plug a suction hose _ Use the inlet return line port under the skimmer basket, that reaches the lowest point of the pool. 

  

What if Power is Turned Off or Out?

  • Many fire start at home with something simple like a BBQ mishap, smoker or other small incident where you have power and the ability to put out a small fire, before it turns into a huge disaster while waiting for fire professionals. 
  • FireFighter1 Systems are to be used while in safe proximity from fire to create defensible space when wildfire is a few miles away to protect property from flying embers AND/OR to put out an active property fire before it spreads and creates a wildfire. If the electricity has been turned off and evacuation orders in place, leave the property.
  • Many of our customers have backup generators, solar with battery or other personal power resources to depend on if power does become a factor and it is safe to stay to protect your property. 

 

IMPORTANT: Test the method you use and set up for your swimming pool, each system is different and PVC piping setup can be unique. Have the person responsible for maintenance help familiarize the FireFighter1 user with setup and best use practices. It is recommended to practice using your FireFighter1 hose when installed, and once a year before each fire season.

Example Installations

Install #1

In this install, the elbow above the pump was cut off,  together with the tubing that connected it to the pump. The diverter valve was connected to the remaining tubing from the filter with a length of PVC tubing and couplings that placed the diverter immediately and precisely above the pump connection. Tubing then connected the diverter to the pump. All the parts were cemented only after being sure everything fit.

Before & After

 Pool Pump Before

                          

Install #2

This install is similar to Install #2. The hose is permanently connected to the diverter valve via the quick release since the storage box containing the remaining hose is over the wall that surrounds the pool equipment.

Before & After

  

Install #3

This is a very easy install. A long vertical straight pipe connects the pool pump to the filter. That pipe was cut a little way up from the pump, then:

  1. The pipe attached to the pump was removed and the cut end  was cemented to the diverter
  2. The diverter port 180o to that was then cemented to the pipe from the filter
  3. Then the bottom pipe was shortened (having carefully determined how much to shorten it) so it could be used to re-connected to the pump at one end and the diverter at the other. Once the fit was established, it was cemented to the diverter and connected to the pump.
  4. Finally, the quick release was installed on the remaining diverter port
