CHECKING UNPACKED EQUIPMENT.
General. The water system is packaged and shipped in 12 tricons and sixteen 50K water tank storage
chests. One 50K collapsible fabric tank is 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.
