OPERATOR PMCS PROCEDURES
Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are performed to keep the collapsible fabric water
tank assembly in operating condition. The checks are used to find, correct or report problems. Perform
PMCS each time the tank assembly is serviced. Using the PCMS table, always do PMCS in the same
order so that it gets to be a habit. With practice, problems can easily be detected. Pay careful attention
to WARNING and CAUTION statements. A WARNING means someone could be hurt. A CAUTION
means equipment could be damaged.
Before using the tank assembly, do Before PMCS.
During tank assembly use, do During PMCS.
After the tank assembly is used, do After PMCS.
Do Weekly PMCS once a week.
Do Semi-annually PMCS once every six months.
If something is found to be wrong when performing PMCS, fix it if possible, using troubleshooting
procedures and/or maintenance procedures.
Use DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet) to record any faults discovered
before, during, or after operation, unless the faults can be fixed. It is not required to record faults that you
can fix. For further information on how to use DA Form 2404, see DA PAM 738-750.
If tools that are required to perform PMCS are not listed in Table 2, WP 0033 00, of the Maintenance
Allocation Chart, notify Unit Maintenance.
Your Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services, Table 1, lists the inspections and care required to

The Procedure column of Table 1 tells you how to perform the required checks and services. Carefully
follow these instructions. When the procedure tells you to, notify your supervisor.
