Pull out at tank connections to be sure they will be clear when tanks are filled.
Remove caps and plugs from tank #1 connections and connect special tee (3) to tank #1 and connect distribution hose
(2) to special tee (3). Connect other end of hose (2) to tank #2.
Connect second distribution hose (2) to other side of tank #2 and connect other end of the hose (2) to tank #3.
The storage to pump suction hose sections are the same size as raw water intake system
hoses, except one has two female connectors and one has two male connectors to prevent
accidental mix-up with raw water hoses.
Connect storage to pump suction hose sections (4) together.
Place distribution pump (5) into final position and connect suction hose (4) to pump (5) and other end of hose (4) to
special tee (3).
Connect product shutoff valve (6) to the product out connection.
Connect product out water hose sections (7) to the product shutoff valves (6) and add sections as needed. Lay hose
out on the ground with end directed away from the work area. Be sure to uncap the end.
Connect distribution pump outlet piping to the distribution pump outlet.
Connect both dispensing hoses (8) (with nozzles) to distribution pump outlet piping. Put dispensing nozzles in cups on
pump frame. Do not leave them on ground.
Connect the electrical power cable (9) from distribution pump to the Distribution Pump power outlet.
Connect the electrical control cable (10) from the distribution pump to the distribution pump control outlet.
Inflate storage tank colas using air pump. Install tank covers and support balls. (See TM 55-5430-225-12&P for
storage tank instructions.)
2-15. INITIAL ADJUSTMENTS, CHECKS, AND SELF-TESTS. The following checks and tests must be made before starting the
ROWPU. When these steps are completed the ROWPU will be ready to start.
After Movement and Assembly Adjustments and Checks. After setting up the ROWPU make sure:
Use plastic covered checklist located in (MODEL WTA-060) ROWPU to assure that proper
procedures have been followed.
All hose couplings are tight.
Make sure the circuit breaker for the raw water and distribution pump is turned off prior to
proceeding. Failure to do so could result in electrocution.
Electrical cable connectors am locked.
Ground rod is driven in as described and illustrated in paragraph 2-14 and Figure 2-30.
Ground cables are tight at both ends from the ground rod to trailer.
Check raw water to determine if polyelectrolyte will be used. Use the portable turbidity meter (para. 2-6) to measure the
raw water turbidity. If it is greater than 8.0, polyelectrolyte will be needed. Skip step (6) below. If it is less than 8.0.
continue with step (6) below.
If polyelectrolyte is used when the color is greater than 10 and the turbidity is 8.0 or less,
the elements will be plugged with a coating called tannic acid that can not be removed. This
will require replacement of the elements.
