2-11. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE - cont.
Assemble Lead Pumping Station. Refer to figure 2-15.
To prevent contamination of water system and damage to components,
keep rocks, dirt, mud, sand and debris from entering open couplings and
hoses during assembly.
Refer to para 2-11d to connect quick disconnect couplings.
Refer to para 2-11e to install coupling clamps.
Assemble and prepare 600 gpm pump for use Refer to the applicable TM.
Position 600 gpm pump so that suction port is pointing toward water source.
Connect butterfly valve (10) to suction port on 600 gpm pump with coupling clamp (9).
Ensure that anti-seize tape is applied in the same direction as the
If required, apply antiseize tape (Item 4, App E) to male threads of coupling pipe fitting (12) and
screw fitting into coupling half (13). Connect assembled parts to butterfly valve (10) with
coupling clamp (11).
Connect sufficient quantity of suction hoses to reach water source.
Connect 6-inch x 10-foot suction hose (14) to coupling half(13).
Connect reducing wye (15) to the last 6-inch x 10 foot suction hose (14).
Connect reducing wye (15) to 4-inch hose from water source.
Connect check valve (2) to discharge port on 600 gpm pump with coupling clamp (1). Arrow on
side of valve must point away from pump.
To prevent injury to personnel, open port of pressure relief valve must
point away from water pump.
Connect pressure relief valve (4) to check valve (2) with coupling clamp (3).
