Figure 2-26. Typical Water Tank Installation
Attach float to strainer with enough rope to allow strainer to go under water but not touch bottom.
Avoid placing the strainer near sandy areas. Hook up raw water system (fig. 2-30). Use only enough hose to
reach from the water source to the ROWPU.
Ensure all hose connections are tight and seals are in place. Raw water pumps
will not prime if the raw water hoses draw air. To prevent damage to ROWPU
due to leaves and dirt, DO NOT operate pumps without strainer.
