Explanation:
Hello Romina, I don't profess any knowledge on the subject but I did find this definition (and a picture) of a playpipe at the following URL. Seems to be a standard piece of kit for testing fire equipment.
Hope it helps!

"A playpipe is a longer piece of pipe that helps shape the stream and is often attached to the nozzle. The playpipe does this by giving the water a straight path to flow before leaving the nozzle. The rough lining and bends in a hose causes the water to tumble like water will swirl along the edge of a fast moving stream. The playpipe helps make the water move in all one direction and the stream can be projected farther than without the playpipe."
