The fire hose reel consists of valve, input pipeline, fire hose, spray gun, etc. It can spray fire extinguish agent while rapidly unfolding the hose. While hydrant hose is to transport high pressure water or fire retardant liquids such as foam.
Fire hose reel and hydrant hose has different usage
When the fire reel is on fire, the fire brigade uses it to connect water pipes to extinguish the fire. While fire hose is to transport water or anti fire agent such as foam. The former is used to connect water pipes. While the latter is to transport flame retardant liquids, not limited to water.
The storage is different
The fire reel is usually in a red fire cabinet. And it is usually on the wall around some convenient and fire-prone areas. There are usually fire extinguishers and fire alarms around it. But you should store fire fighting hose in a special place or room. For long-term storage of spare hoses, you have to choose a place with proper temp and good ventilation. Then roll up the hose in a single layer and place it on a hose rack. Turn the fire hoses twice a year or exchange and fold once. The vehicle hose should avoid rubbing against each other. Besides, change the edges if necessary.
Why can’t fire hoses exceed 25 meters
The length of hoses used by fire brigade is generally 20m. In some areas, 25m long indoor fire hoses are also used. However, if the length of the hose is too long, it will not be easy for fire fighting. In another hand, each floor has a hydrant in the mid area. Thus a 25-meter fire hose is enough.
