If you follow our work then you know that we harp on "keeping it simple" and "keeping it ready for use"...whatever "it" is. A few years ago while doing some water supply study work in Hartford, Vermont we came across a pumper set-up to quickly deploy suction hose for dump tank operations. Nothing fancy by any means...just some planning and simple design work to speed up the deployment of suction hose into a dump tank. Besides the pre-connected suction strainer feature, we like the support bracket design that prevents the coupling from being stressed by the weight of the strainer. Kudos to the Hartford FD.

The support bracket keeps the coupling from stressing that lightweight hose attachment point.
