                        Two - 3” x 25’ short supply hose, one each side, in step compartments.                      

Priming Pump/ Drafting:  Close ALL valves (tank to pump, tank fill, discharges), attach suction hose and strainer to suction inlet, tighten couplings to reduce air leaks, open suction valve, activate primer for 30 seconds (watch suction hose), check/ increase pressure to 80-100 psi, re-fill tank, open discharge(s) SLOWLY, increase pressure as needed, set pressure control.

Jet Siphon/Strainer Operations: Must have 50-100 gallons water on board. Attach Jet Siphon Strainer to suction hose, attach 1½” hose to Jet Siphon and pump discharge, connect suction hose to apparatus suction inlet, place Jet Siphon in water source, open discharge to Jet Siphon at 100psi, open suction inlet bleeder until water discharges, close bleeder valve, open suction inlet valve, open tank fill slowly to circulate water, close tank to pump, increase pressure and re-fill tank, open discharge(s) slowly, set desired pressure and pressure control.

Back fill Operations: Must have 25+ gallons on board. Attach 3” suction hose with Foot Valve strainer attached. Open suction inlet valve until water fills suction hose (may need to bleed air at coupling), increase pump pressure, open tank fill to circulate water, close tank to pump, increase pressure, refill tank, open discharge(s), adjust pressure as needed, set pressure control.

Porta-Tank Operations: Porta-Tanks are 1000 - 3000+ gallons. Place Porta-Tanks on smooth level surface with ground cover or tarp beneath to protect from sharp objects & rocks. If using two or more tanks, place tanks in close proximity with one corner overlapping, diamond to diamond. This provides maximum access and refill capability.  Do not obstruct vehicles. Use Jet Syphon Strainer and suction hose to transfer water from tank to tank.

120 VAC Inverter:    WORKING
