4-6. CHECKING UNPACKED EQUIPMENT.
a. General. The water system is packaged and shipped in 12 tricons and eight 50K water tank storage chests. Two
20K collapsible fabric tanks are stored in each chest. All other components of the water system are shipped in
tricon containers. Where possible, save crating inside the tricon for reuse. It will make repacking easier. When
uncrating the equipment, keep in mind that the system is made up of different connection kits. This manual
addresses installation and use of all connection kits, but you may not need all of these components to perform
your mission. Your operating requirements will determine which connection kits/components are needed to
perform the mission.
