Nyflex Hard suction hose is a specific type of fire hose used in drafting operations, when a fire engine uses a vacuum to draw water from a portable water tank, pool, or other static water source. It is built to withstand vacuum, rather than pressure, abrasion, and heat.
Hard suction hose may also be used to connect a fire engine to a hydrant.
These hoses are built to withstand vacuum, rather than water pressure, abrasion, and heat. They are, therefore, constructed differently from the standard fire hose and have different end fittings.
Nyflex hard suction hose is available in flame retardant grade grey, yellow or black.
