Maintenance Instructions (continued)
Corrective Maintenance (continued)
Use extreme care when enlarging a tear. Tension in the fabric may
cause the fabric to rip further. Ideally, tank height should not be
greater than two feet (0.61 meters) when you make this type repair.
(2) Loop cord at top of clamp around wrist to prevent loss of clamp into tank.
(3) Slip bottom half of clamp inside tank. If tear is too small for clamp to slip through,
use a pocket knife to enlarge tear to accommodate width of clamp.
(4) Rotate clamp so that its length runs with tear. Pull bottom half of clamp up against
fabric. Slide top half down and over stud.
(5) Tighten wing nut by hand until leak stops. If more tightening is necessary, use
pliers. Do not overtighten.
