Figure 2-32. Water Distribution System Deployment
Never use potable water hoses to handle raw water, or raw water hoses to handle potable
water. Mixing hoses could cause contamination of potable water resulting in serious
illness. Hoses are labeled.
Remove protective caps from hoses only when ready to make connection. Do not allow
sand or dirt to get into hoses or connectors. Inspect hose gaskets before making
connections. Replace damaged gaskets.
This set-up need not be finished until the ROWPU is started and water is being produced.
Only 50 feet of potable water-to-storage hose is provided. Do not position storage tanks too
far from ROWPU. Hose must reach center tank.
Refer to TM 5-5430-225-12&P for set up and operation of storage tanks.
Remove storage tanks, tank covers and ground cloths from protective covers.
Spread out ground cloths where potable water storage tanks (1) will be located.
Unfold tanks on ground cloths. Spread out to round shape and avoid ridges in the bottom.
