I was thinking of it and the discussion earlier about having two lines off an engine was max  So if an engine is pumping got a satellite that is feeding 4  or six lines it must be really taxing it unless there’s multiple engines supplying the satellite

^^^ As far as some of the above questions regarding the SAT's .... yes today other than the Associated ENG other 2000 Gal Pumpers are capable of supplying a SAT 
 but the "Associated ENG & the Designated Backup ENG are well versed in the operations of the SAT & it's capabilities"

l would say correct as 20 so yrs ago only the sat engines / pumps were 2000 gpm and now all ( except squads 1000gpm ) are 2000 gpms
Does anyone know the reason that squads don't have 2000 GPM pumps?  I know they are slightly larger but not that much difference that it would change the dimensions of the pumphouse.  The way squads run they are just as likely to be required to pump large flows of water especially in areas that they are first do on.

Squads carry much more in the way of tools and saws so compartments are larger and configuration of hose bed allows for 3 beds not usual 4. Also i assume same goes for pump sizes and that 1,000 gpm pump takes up less space, also total weight could be a factor too.

The 2000 gpm pumps would really only need that kind of capacity if they were supplying satellites or relay pumping. While a squad could perform those tasks, the odds of them doing that are slim to none. It would be more important for the squad to be close to the scene with there extra tools than to be tied down to a satellite or several blocks away relay pumping

 "...Engine 165 got the rescue pumper as requested from E 165's captain for the extra haz-mat equipment they need to carry... "

What is the size of the hose trash line carried on the front bumper?
