1-10. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS.
Refer to figure 1-1.
350 GPM Pump Connection Kits. Each connection kit consists of hoses, valves and tees to connect the 350
gpm pump, hypochlorination unit, water meter and 125 GPM pump connection kits to the water system. One 350
pump kit is installed at the water source and is used to fill the collapsible water tanks. Another 350 GPM kit is
installed on the discharge side of the water tanks to pump water to the dispensing points
350 gpm Pump. The pump is a self contained, engine driven centrifugal water pump. The pump is trailer
mounted to aid transport and Ls the primary source of water delivery in the 300 K water system. Refer to
the applicable TM for location and description of major components on the pump
Hypochlorination Unit. Automatically injects hypochlorite solution into water supply in direct proportion to
water flow rate. Refer to the applicable TM for location and description of major components of the
Water Meter. Turbine type meter measures total water flow through 350 connection kit
125 GPM Pump Connection Kits. The connection kit consists of hoses, valves and tees needed to connect the
125 gpm pump and check valve to the 350 gpm pump connection kit. One 125 gpm pump kit is connected to
each 350 gpm pump connection kit. The 125 gpm pump may be used as a spare to back up the 350 gpm pump
or used by itself when reduced water pumping capacity is needed. The 125 gpm pump may also be used with
the 350 gpm pump to increase pumping capacity.
125 gpm pump. The 125 gpm, engine driven, centrifugal water pump is skid mounted with handles at both
ends to aid lifting and positioning. Refer to the applicable TM for location and description of major
components on the pump.
Check Valve. In line check valve prevents back flow of water through the 125 gpm pump during pumping
Dual Tank Connection Kits. The dual tank connection kit consists of hoses, valves and tees needed to connect
the 20K collapsible water tanks to the water system. Hand operated gate valves are used to control water flow to
and from each tank. A total of eight dual tank connection kits are used to connect the 16 water tanks. Each tank
can store up to 20,000 gallons of potable water. The tanks expand and become pillow shape when filled.
Handles on the sides of the tank aid movement and positioning of tank during setup and take down. Each tank is
supplied with a ground cloth, couplings vent tubes, elbows and drain valve. Refer to the applicable TM for
location and description of major components on the water tanks.
4-inch Interconnection Kits. The interconnection kit consists of hoses and tees and is used to provide additional
control of water tank filling and discharge operations. Two interconnection kits are used in the system.
