How To Purchase Fire Hose

  • Adding color impregnation improves durability compared to untreated white hose
  • 50 foot lengths are easier to handle and offer more layout flexibility vs. 100 foot lengths
  • Brass fittings are typically used only around salt water or corrosive chemical environments
  • The most common hose, thread and couplings in use by fire departments today is double jacket hose with aluminum NH/NST
  • 2.5” NH/NST couplings measures close to 3 inches across the outside diameter of the male (ODM)
  • Double jacket hose with any color is the most durable hose available


  • The female side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a male NH / NST connection
  • The male side of a NH / NST coupling will only connect to a female NH / NST connection
  • The female side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a male NPT pipe or a male NPSH connection
  • The male side of a NPSH coupling will only connect to a female NPSH connection. It will NOT thread into a female NPT pipe

TPI = Threads Per Inch

NPT = National Pipe Tapered

NPSH = National Pipe Straight Hose

NH = National Hose

NST = National Standard Thread

The most common thread type in use by fire departments today is NST or National Standard Thread. NST also goes by the initials NH or National Hose. It can even be referred to as NHT or National Hose Thread but NST or NH is more common these days. NH = NST

The second most common thread is NPSH (also known as IPT). A female NPSH coupling can thread on to a male NPT and seal via gasket if the face of the NPT male is square. NPSH = IPT = SIPT and has the same TPI (threads per inch) as NPT. NPSH is the straight thread version of NPT which is tapered thread and common in non-fire department use.
