    Slovenia? Why in the hell are you soliciting opinions of American Firefighters? Why don't you seek the opinions of Slovak Firefighters? Or have they already laughed you out of the firehouse?

    Look, I tried to explain this to you once before, I will give it one more whirl- When a fire is being fought defensively (that is, from the exterior by master streams, tower ladders or other aerial water delivery devices.......That means that the building, or a portion of the building has or is about to collapse and **WE NO LONGER CARE** about delivering water to the fire in a precise, surgical manner. The idea is to now deliver as much as we can as fast as we can so that we can pick up our hose (the hose without the holes that doesn't float) and go back to the house and clean up and either get warm or cool off.

    The combined years experience of the people on here that have told you this isn't going to work numbers in the hundreds. As I have previously suggested- why don't you market your device for agricultural uses? Seems like it may have something there. But structural firefighting- pardon the pun- "it isn't going to fly."

      Thanks for all your opinions. I will now stop upsetting you with my crazy ideas.
      You may not be aware of it, but you all helped me a lot by pointing out the potential drawbacks of the device usage which probably need special attention.
      I'm not claiming that device can be used in every situation, but it seems that there are some situations where it could be the only means to transport water, mist or foam into the centre of the fire.
      I have never been laughed out of the firehouse, but even if I have, I would understand it as a normal human opposition to changes and it wouldn't stop me from actually testing the principle in practice.
      I really respect what you are doing and all of your years of protecting the people and property, but we would probably never fly with planes if the combined years of travel over the ground was the only counterargument.
      It is not really important, but anyway: Slovene and Slovak firefighters are from two different countries and don't speak the same language.
      Once again, thank you all!
