Does It Really Work?
Compared to competing hoses and handles, this particular design has an ergonomic handle which makes it more natural to grip it for a long period of time, and makes it more comfortable. Its handle is claimed to be 60% stronger too.
The Big Red Blaster is a piece of high-pressure technology which claims to offer the same intensity and accuracy as is found in fire hoses. Each blaster is made from stainless steel and aircraft grade aluminum, which means it will withstand the test of time. Additionally, it offers a six position control knob so consumers can control the strength of the stream they get, ranging from a light spray all the way to a powerful blast.
This Big Red Blaster is a spray nozzle, or a single-fluid nozzle. Therefore, it works by forcing the water out from a small area, which naturally creates pressure. The bigger the outlet, the broader the amount of water will come out. Smaller outlets result in lower pressure but a finer stream of water.
With the control knob provided, the size of the opening can be changed by users. Consumers can therefore change the area covered by the water in addition to the water pressure.
How it's Different from Competitors
Claiming to be like a fire hose, this product is in fact like a fire hose. The pressure created in professional fire hoses work in the same fashion. Of course, this claim is a bit misleading, insofar as there are multiple types of fire hoses, not just one.
Differences between professional grade fire hoses is the result of different hose lengths, opening sizes, and amount of pressure.
Given the claim to be similar to a professional fire hose, it is important to calculate the rate of water expelled from each.
Figures provided by the company measure gallons per minute and pounds of water per square inch. Rates associated with the average residential water system are the same as those experienced with this Big Red Blaster product. Therefore, the rate of water expelled and the pressure are not the same as a professional fire hose, but not ineffective.
