Niedner, Inc. and the NFPA would like to stress the importance of annual testing of all your fire hoses; as they are one of the most important parts of your firefighting equipment.  They need to be in acceptable condition to perform efficiently.  Hose tests are easier and safer to execute with a high quality hose tester and in this article we will explain why you should choose Niedner hose testers and accessories.

At Pumpkin Center VFD, we strive to give our members quality equipment to use at all times. We’ve found over the years that small details make huge differences. Our equipment committee is always asking the question “Is something better out there?” We stay abreast of current industry trends and investigate the latest and greatest from equipment manufacturers to make sure our guys and girls have what they need to do the job and do it well. In 2009 we were tired of the fire hose we had been purchasing and bought some Niedner XL-800. The hose is still in service today. During this time we’ve found that in addition to being durable, it rolls up extremely tightly, packs tightly in hose beds and is lightweight, which lessens fatigue on members. With a comparable friction loss rate to much other hose in the industry, our committee has yet to find a reason to leave Niedner. We had several sections of cloth Niedner 4 inch supply hose before switching to 5 inch as well. It was the best supply hose I’ve ever seen or used.
