      You can't go with either or on the size. It depends on what type of fire you have. A house, you would use 1.75" attack line, it also works well on brush and car fires, as some states have outlawed booster lines. But if you're fighting a large commercial/industrial fire, you're gonna have to step up toa 2.5" attack line. And, if you have to set up monitors for surround and drown ops, LDH is the best option for this. 4" is easier to deal with when re-loading, but 5" give you more volume with less FL. As for your attack line, jacketed all the way, supply lines can be the rubber jacketed LDH. Try using NFPA guidelines, it tells you exactly what type of hose and how much of it you need to make your apparatus NFPA compliant. NFPA 1961 would be a good place to start. Alsocheck out NFPA 1901.
