In an emergency, water management is critical. You'll find that your response equipment is not complete without a Multi-Manifold. One Multi-Manifold can break down a 2 1/2 " fire hose to up to (6) 3/4" Forestry lines(garden hoses). This is a must have when dealing with decontamination shelters requiring a lot of water. Choose from a variety of combinations for inlet and outlet sizes including the new In-Line systems. All Multi-Manifolds feature 1/4 turn ball valves. Made of Aluminum.
