Do not allow air to be sucked into the strainer as this will reduce the pump capacity and cause floc
floatation in the erdlator tank. Dirt, sand, or other foreign matter will damage equipment, resulting in
loss of production and costly repair.
When two pumps are required to supply raw water, connect the discharge side of the first pump to the
suction side of the second pump with suction hose. Use as many sections as necessary.
(5) If not already installed, install a pipe nipple (4, fig. 2-19) in the discharge opening of the first pump, then a
pipe elbow (21, fig. 2-6) on the nipple, and a 1 1/2 to 1 1/2 Inch male pipe-to-female hose adapter (2) in the elbow (21).
(6) In stall a 1 1/2 to 1 1/2 inch male pipe-to-hose adapter (23) in the water intake connecting flange (6, fig. 2-
19) of the second pump.
Remove chained hose cap from raw water inlet hose adapter (30, fig. 2-6) at the rear of the van body.
Connect together the required 25-foot lengths of 1 1/2-inch cotton rubber lines hose (20). Connect the
male end of this hose line to the adapter (2) on the discharge side of the pump. Connect the opposite end of hose to the
adapter for the raw water hose inlet (30) on the rear of the van body.
Water Lines Between Storage Tanks.
(1) Remove cap from tank (12, fig. 2-6), outlet (11), and from tank (6 and 7) and outlet (5).
Attach male end of a 2-inch rubber hose assembly (8) to female inlet (7) of second storage tank 6.
(3) Install a 2-inch male pipe-to-hose adapter (9) in hose outlet of first storage tank (12).
(4) Install a 2-inch gate valve (10) on adapter (9) and screw a 2-inch male pipe to hose adapter (9) in gate
Attach female end of hose (8) to adapter (9).
Filtered Water Hose Lines.
