    In the timeless spirit of "Go Big or Go Home". Kidde Angus apparently has a new supply hose in 8", 10" or 12" "Super Aquaduct". Must be fairly new as was not on the Kidde website the last time I visited (though that has been some time ago).

      That's been around since at least the 1990s neiowa It's never been an item that's gotten much marketing funds since it's such a specialized niche. They're smelling a bit more money in the air these days with $660,000 grants going to towns with 4,000 residents to help recruit volunteers and other Federal boondogles.

      It's big uses are petroleum plants and for emergency bypass of municipal water system breaks.

      Connecticut has been toying with the idea for some time now -- with one of the main considerations the fear of a major failure within the (Hartford) Metropolitan District Commission's system or one of the other big water systems. One or Two 12" hoses could at least provide adequate pressure until repairs on a very large main could be completed.

      New Jersey has been deploying these 5,000gpm / 12" hose combination task forces for a couple years now IIRC -- this is just the latest:
