MARS ThrustBuster Fire Hose Safety Device

MARS ThrustBuster

MARS Company developed the ThrustBuster hose diffuser as a safety device for use with water meter field testers. The ThrustBuster adds an increased level of safety to the operator and surrounding property by eliminating the thrust associated with loose hoses that may lay on the ground.

Eliminate Hazards

The Safest Diffuser in the Industry - Dual ports reduce the Flow & Pressure by Half for an increased level ff safety to the Operator & Property.


The ThrustBuster is not a metering device. It’s Primary function is to reduce the force of flowing water from fire hydrants or hose lines. This helps to control soil erosion and to safely direct the flow pattern. The ThrustBuster is reccommended for all field-testing and water main flushing operations in which unsecured hoses are used to direct flow.

ThrustBuster 30° Model

The initial force of water is centered at the base of the ThrustBuster. The law of hydraulics forces the ThrustBuster to remain in place on the ground. This minimizes the movement of both the ThrustBuster and the hose, dramatically reducing the degree of potential injury.
