You can reduce this down to a 3/4" hose as long as you keep the water running through the pump. You do not want to let it run down as the pump will get too hot.

Yes you can reduce to a 3/4 line. You will have great pressure but low volume. My suggestion, go with a 1'' with a 10/20 dual gallon nozzle. Great pressure and volume to knock down a good size grass fire.

What size solids can this pump handle and what screen size do you recommend?
