SERVICE UPON RECEIPT
The five water distribution systems are shipped in reusable wooden crates of various sizes (figure 4-1). Use care
when uncrating equipment to avoid unnecessary damage of shipping crates. Refer to Chapter 1, Section II for
identification of particular water distribution system (WDS) components and kits to be used for your system.
When uncrating equipment, it is important to remember that the system is based on a modular concept. The
systems described in this manual are dealt within general terms. When for instance, the 1,000K WDS is described
as consisting of 20, 50,000 gallon water tanks and associated equipment, this is not meant to imply that all 20
water tanks must be used. Uncrate only the amount of equipment necessary to perform your particular opera-
tion. Uncrate equipment as follows.
