OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
2-5. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE.
2-6. GENERAL. These procedures describe assembly and preparation for use of the FAWPSS. The system is
made up of three major components: water storage drums, a 125 GPM pump, and a water distribution system
consisting of several distribution stations. Before attempting to assemble or operate your system, become
thoroughly familiar with these three elements.
a. To position the two 500-gallon water drums use the lifting and towing yoke assy provided with the system
in accordance with TM 10-8110-202-13&P.
b. The 125 GPM pump and 3-horse power engine comes fully assembled anc ready for use after proper
servicing has been accomplished. This Information is contained in TM 5-2805-257-14 for the engine on
Model WPSS100 and in TM 5-4320-309-14 for the engine on Model 9095-91.
2-7. INITIAL ADJUSTMENTS. Inspect the equipment for any damage incurred during shipment. Report any
problems to your supervisor.
2-8. ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE
a. Selection and Preparation of Assembly Site.
Select a level, debris free area approximately 30 feet by 120 feet.
Place the 125 GPM pump in position with the female quick-disconnect facing toward the water drums
and male toward site chosen for distribution of water see figure 2-1.
Prior to assembly of hoses ensure rigid hoses (suction) only are
installed between pump and water drums. If this is not done, damage
to hoses and pump can occur.
