As lift is increased by 10 feet, pump may only be able to deliver about _____ % of its capacity.
All fire department pumping apparatus are rated when drafting with a minimum lift of _______ feet from the center of a pump intake to the surface of the water through ______ feet of hard intake hose.
Intake pressure correction takes into account Lift + _________ .
Total Intake Hose Friction Loss

Dual Pumping is:
Supplying two attacking pumpers from one hydrant (intake to intake).
Relay Pumping is:
Pumping from one pumper to another over a long distance for the purpose of boosting volume in the second pumper.
