The vertical distance in feet between the source of water and the pump of a fire department pumper. Water that is drafted is often referred to as being lifted. Height a column of water may be lifted in sufficient quantity to provide a reliable fire flow. Lift may be raised through a hard suction hose to a pump, taking into consideration the atmospheric pressure and friction loss within the hard suction hose. Dependable lift is usually considered to be 14.7 feet (4.5 in). Maximum lift is the height to which any amount of water may be raised through a hard suction hose to a pump. Theoretical lift is the scientific height that a column of water may be lifted by atmospheric pressure in a true vacuum. At sea level, this height is 33.8 feet (10 in). The height will decrease as elevation increases.
