We recognized in 2012 as we started the replacement process of our 20-year-old heavy rescue that we wanted the protection of a water/foam system but something small and compact. After lots of searching, we located the Trimax system and chose to 60-gallon unit. The benefits were huge as we could get the best of both worlds and have a pressurized water/foam system without the large cost of a pump and tank and the training to operate the system is drastically easier than basic pump operations. Knowing the system would rarely be used, we felt this was our best option to allow us the money savings to configure the rest of our truck the way that met the needs of our community.
Simply turning the air tank on and turning the release valve and you are flowing compressed air water/foam. You could not ask for a simpler product to use.
