1. Protective Sleeve
“It also can serve as a protective sleeve for hoses and electrical drop cords where there is light weight traffic, IE: hand trucks, pedestrian.” - Darryl
2. Boat Pier Bumper Guard
“You can mount it on the edges of boat piers as a cushion or bumper guard for a boat. It works well if u accordion fold it by nailing it flat then making a small loop and then nailing the other side of the loop and continue to do that with numerous loops around the whole pier edge.” - Lenny
3. Fencing Material
“Fire makes great strap fencing for horses or cattle.” - MJ
4. Concrete Pouring "Whip"
“Some guys in the concrete business make their own “whips” for pouring concrete with a pump. They get a fitting that will attach to the concrete pump hardware and weld about a 6” long “nipple” (steel pipe) on it. Then, they take about a 12 ft. long piece of fire hose and slip it on the nipple and secure with hose clamps. Makes a nice “trunk” that is flexible for the concrete placement crew to use. Crew can bend the end easily and stop the flow of concrete if necessary. Great for pouring walls.” – Douglas from Canada
5. Gutter Spout Ground Protection
“Could also slid it over you gutter spout during hard rains so that it doesn't make holes in the ground or deteriorate concrete and tar, just slid over the bottom outlet spout and stretch the hose out it will slow down the flow of water and make less of an impact.” – Ryan
6. Scrimmage Line for Sports
“My son had a youth football coach that used old fire hose to create a scrimmage line for practice. Most of the time the kids practice in fields with no lines and this is an easy way to have a scrimmage line. After practice just roll it up.” - Lee
7. Tool Protector
“Use old hoses to encase tools etc., such as a level, for protection.” – Cade
8. Storage Buffer
“You can cut them lengthwise and use as a buffer layer between "stuff" you store and do not want damaged.” - anonymous
9. Concrete Pump Hose
“If they are strong enough, (PSI burst strength-wise) they can be used for pumping concrete, lightweight concrete and cellular concrete, maybe also unloading many types of fluids from tractor-trailer tanks.” – Tim
10. Hose Protection
“We have a nursery and run light duty soft water lines throughout the nursery. Where tractors, wagons, trucks and skid steers run over the water line, we use the fire hose as an outer housing and the weaker hose is fine. It's a good protector.” – Bruce
