Hose fittings

Guys,

What sizes do you want to see:

1", 1.5", 2.5" and 4"

All threaded and the 4" in Storz as well?

I've read that NYFD uses 1.75 and 3.5"... but I can only find info on the 3.5" in NFPA 1963 (2014 edition)

I'd say 1-3/4", 2-1/2", 3", & 4" Storz, but that's just me.

Just to test the waters I think you would do well with 1.5", 2.5" and 3" threaded, 4 and 5" Storz. These are by far the most common couplings you will find in the US.

1.5" are used on 1.5", 1.75" and 2" hose. 2.5" is found on both 2.5" and 3" hose.

3.5" was once a popular size of supply line in big cities, before the availability of light weight large diameter hose (1980s?)but I don't know how common it is anymore.

Separate ends and coupled together for all of these would be a good option.

Matt,
I'd like to add my vote to include 1" booster fittings for the many brush trucks and booster reels.
