Pressure Flow and Hose Length? (why do we ask for this?):

We custom jet every nozzle to meet your exact operating specifications. This way your new nozzles will deliver maximum performance for your setup. To do this, we need this information from you.

GPM = the maximum flow rating of your pump, or if you wish, the maximum flow you use.

Hose Length = how long is the typical length of hose you will use? We suggest using the length of a new roll of hose for this spec.

Pressure = What is the maximum pressure rating of your pump, or if you wish, the maximum pressure you use.
