Default The absolute range record.

Does anyone know what the absolute range record for anything that fires water is? Considering things like fire hoses and riot cannons.

Default Re: The absolute range record.

i saw this video on youtube a long while ago about some european created jet engine powered water cannon/pump thing. i think it was for fighting forest fires. IIRC it was like some giant tank with a huge turbine on it that pumped water. don't recall the range on it though.

How high can a fire hose shoot vertically? Between 75 feet and 100 feet straight up, depending on water pressure.

This doesn't answer the question at hand but I think if a fire truck could shoot 100 feet vertically it could do at least 200 feet horizontally.

I think I bookmarked a page with a 300+ foot shooting fire truck.
