Based on the location of your fire department or facility, you might have access to consistently flowing water or need to use a stagnant source. In the latter scenario, equipping your team with a suction system plus a strainer diverts water free of debris to your hose and toward the flames.

For rounding out your fire suppression equipment, learn more about what hose strainers do:

What Is a Hose Strainer?

Featuring fully metal construction, hose strainers have a grid-like pattern and attach to your suction system. This setup allows water from a static source to flow through the pump to the hose without carrying pebbles, gravel and other debris with it.

In performing this action, the hose strainer:

  • Prevents the pump from sucking in particles.
  • Fastens directly to your suction system.
  • Is equipped with a non-return valve to prevent backflow.
  • Stays in place, floats or has a swivel action.
  • Reduces clogging to improve pump flow and preserve your fire hose.
  • Features a lightweight, compact design for convenient storage and transport.
