Sprinkler System Flows
 Pump at 150 psi
 Standard ^{1}/_{2}" head flows 20 gpm at 15 psi

Dual Pumping
 Two Pumps working off of a single hydrant.
 In order to use, measure drop in intake pressure once attack lines are in service.
 up to 10% = 3 like volumes remaining
 1115% = 2 like volumes remaining
 1625% = 1 like volume remaining

Six Principles of Pressure
 1. Fluid pressure acts perpindicular to any surface on which it acts
 2. Fluid pressure at a point in a fluid at rest is the same intensity in all directions
 3. Pressure applied to a confined fluid is transmitted equally in all directions
 4. The pressure of a liquid in an open vessel is directly proportional to its depth
 5. The pressure of a liquid in an open container is directly proportional to the density of the liquid
 6. The pressure of a liquid on the bottom of a vessel is independent of the shape of the vessel

Atmospheric Pressure v. Water Pressure
 14.7 psi at sea level
 12.6 psi in Salt Lake City
 Drops 0.5 per 1000' of elevation gain
