OK, this is sort of out of no where but... I'd never really thought much about it but my B-I-L gave me a trash pump that he had sitting around. I played with it a little and got it running. For the time being, it's pushing water to 15 tripod sprinklers around the yard and garden.
I have a couple of acres surrounded by a thousand or so acres of woods. There are no fire hydrants in the neighborhood and likely never will be. There is a "fire pond" down the road and I do have a swimming pool.
I'm just curious if anyone has setup anything (or dealt with something) like this. Is there any point in buying a fire fighting nozzle and scrounge up a couple hundred feet of hose? Of is the idea of fending off a brush fire just a pipe dream? I think I can collect everything that would be needed for a basic setup for short $$$ over time (I'm not in any rush!) but is it worth even trying?
