Section III. OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
2-5. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE
These procedures describe the operation, assembly, and preparation of the WDS20K, WDS40K, WDS300K,
WDS800K, and WDS1,000K water distribution systems in the fill and discharge modes of operation. The fill
mode of operation tills the water storage tank and the discharge mode draws water from the water storage
tank. In all but the WSDS20K system the fill mode and discharge mode can occur at the same time. Each
water distribution system has four elements that make up the system: water pumps, water storage tank(s),
Hypochlorination Unit, and a water distribution system consisting of distribution stations. Before attempting
to operate your water distribution system, become thoroughly familiar with the operation of all elements.
2-7. INITIAL INSPECTION
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.
(1) Select a level, debris free area.
(2) Place the pump(s) in position with the female quick-disconnect facing toward the water tanks and
male toward site chosen for distribution of water
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.
2-9. ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE
2-9.1 Set-up 20K WDS for Operation as follows:
Failure to follow set-up instructions could permit contaminants to enter the tank. If
either a suction hose or discharge hose for any of the tank is ever detached, be sure to
seal the unconnected end of the quick-disconnect elbow with the plug which is chained
to the elbow.
a. Position 20,000 gallon tank (see Goodyear Aerospace publications 5-19-19, dated 1981). A drain fitting
is located in the bottom of each tank, directly below the discharge port of the tank. Remove the plug
which is threaded into the drain. Retain this plug for use during system disassembly. Attach the drain
hose assy furnished with the tank to the drain fitting. Run the drain hose assy out past the side of the
tank so that free drainage will occur when the tank is emptied and before the tank is folded for
repacking. Be sure that the gate wheel on the drain hose assy is turned to the fully closed position.
