Brian Brush explains why it is important to not get hung up on the “Spray and Pray” qualities of a nozzle stream when evaluating nozzles in a wide open space or parking lot. Instead, he discusses that streams need to be evaluated how they will be used, in an interior application. Knowing how they handle in tight quarters, air movement implications, and what reach can be expected is critical to interior stream evaluation.
