FIRE PROTECTION FOR THE HOME:

Many homes in "wildfire areas" (anywhere), could be pre-protected and (many times the fire extinguished) using THIS 6"straight-bore nozzle, a 1/4" tip... attached to a 5/8" ID garden hose, and using ONLY 'city-water' pressure. It is clearly visible...it will emit well over 60' distance, and least 50' in height. Some, without local 'city-water' (as seen in the recent Paradise, CA fires), backyard swimming pools can be seen, where a gas powered 'portable pump' could be used to supply the 5/8" hose. :)
