Wu, Sam . 2009. A Temporary Fix for Leaky Forest Hose. 0951 1304P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 4 p.

Traditionally, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, engine crews have addressed hose ruptures by isolating the offending section of hose with hose clamps and replacing the stick of hose with a new line. The hose clamps would be removed to charge the hose.

In 2009, the San Dimas Technology and Development Center (SDTDC) evaluated three products for a quick in-the-field solution to compromised hose in an existing hose lay

The results of the evaluations are presented in this Tech Tip.
