EXCEEDING STANDARDS AND DRIVING INNOVATION FOR OVER 30 YEARS
Fred Grenning and Phil Barrett teamed up to create and market the Company's flagship product, the Hose Monster®. The Hose Monster changed the way fire pump testing and hydrant flow testing was done. For the first time, a user could accurately and consistently measure flowrates while minimizing property damage and traffic interference. Hydro Flow Products, Inc. was formed to market and distribute the Hose Monster line of products and since then has continued to create innovative flow testing solutions for the fire protection and waterworks industries.
The Dechlor Demon™ was created to treat chlorinated water that is discharged in a flow test to prevent harmful chemicals from being discharged into lakes, rivers and streams harming aquatic life.
The Company revolutionized the industry again with the development of Pitotless Technology; first introduced with the release of the Pitotless Nozzle™. The industry wide acclaim of the Pitotless Nozzle being incorporated across the Hose Monster product line. Pitotless Technology has led to unsurpassed accuracy, reliability and efficiency that has exceeded industry standards and has also allowed for tremendous improvements on the original Hose Monster with the compact and lightweight Little Hose Monster™ and BigBoy Hose Monster™.
Introduced a new standpipe testing solution using Pitotless technology in the In-Line Pitotless Nozzle™ to accurately and easily measure the flow from a standpipe / PRV at the valve.
Hose Monster continues its commitment to education and training with the launch of Hose Monster University, including intensive hands on courses in state-of-the-art flow testing labs as well as a series of how-to videos for remote learning.
The Smart Monster™ line of products is launched, finally bringing the flow testing industry into the digital age. Hose Monster is revolutionizing the way flow testing is conducted.
The Hose Monster Company celebrates 30 years in business, providing fire technicians with the best flow testing equipment on the market.
