1.5" 11 feet/gallon .75lbs/ft

1.75" 8 feet/gallon 1lb/ft

2" 6.1 feet/gallon 1.3lbs/ft

2.5" 3.92 feet/gallon 2lbs/ft

4" 1.5 feet/gallon 5.6lbs/ft

5" 1 foot/gallon 8lbs/ft

2.5" uses about 25 gallons/hundred feet to charge and weighs in at 200lbs per 100 feet.

1.75" needs 12.5 gallons to charge a hundred feet, and weighs in at 100lbs per 100 feet.

Plus comparing current day top shelf fire hose to the old heavy water-absorbing cotton double jacket rubberlined and brass coupled fire hose can make an even more dramatic weight difference!
