Fire Department Friction Loss Calculator. Figures friction loss in 1.75" through 5" hose including lightweight / Ponn hose. The app does not add in elevation, appliance loss, nozzle pressure or residual pressure it is just a friction loss calculator and can be used to figure GPM from a smooth bore nozzle based on size or the nozzle.

The app uses FL=C*GPM²*L.

*All hose lengths are in 100' segments no 50' lengths*

I need your suggestions to make the app better! Please comment!

    Looking for hose in 50 ft increments. Also 1.5 in hose size. I would also like to see The answer a bit better as well. Possibly bigger and maybe different color.

    It should have 1.5" hose and increments of 50' hose. It should also calculate total pressure loss.
