of the water source. The semirigid suction hose
segments are removed from the main frame mounting
cam locks and fitted together with a suction strainer
placed in the water source. The green freshwater hose is
fitted to the freshwater discharge port on one end. The
other end feeds the processed water to the potable water
holding tank or dispersement center. One end of the
blue wastewater hose is fitted to the wastewater
discharge port. The other end is placed so runoff can
take place without hampering or contaminating further
START-UP.Follow the steps listed below
before starting the engine.
1. Fill the pump strainer with water to prime; close
the cover tightly.
2. Set all control valves to START, as shown in
3. Remove the DE storage container and set it
4. Fill a 3-gallon bucket three-quarters full of
water and add three 2000 ml measures of DE slowly,
stirring the mixture as you add the DE. Do NOT add the
DE to the DE tank at this time.
5. Fill a 3-gallon bucket three-quarters full of
water and add 8 ounces of chlorine. After mixing the
calcium hypochlorite solution, allow the solution to
settle. When the mixture is settled, pour the solution into
the hypochlorite tank.
The engine of the 3000-D is equipped with an
automatic decompression device and an excess fuel-
starting device that allows the engine to start easily and
safely. The automatic decompression device has three
1. Operationthe decompression is OFF, the
engine has compression.
2. Neutralfor cold starting, compression is OFF.
3. Start positioncranking the engine causes the
automatic decompression to operate. When the pin
moves into the operating position, decompression ends
and the engine fires.
Never use the decompression device to
stop the engine. This causes internal engine
Wear hearing protection.
The procedures for a cold start are as follows:
1. Place the automatic decompression device in
START and pull the excess fuel-starting device.
2. Insert the crank handle into the crank-handle
guide. If you are not sure of the proper way to place your
hand on the crank handle while cranking, then ask your
supervisor for instructions.
3. Crank the engine slowly for four cranks and
then turn the crank as quickly as you can. Once the
engine starts, run the engine at half speed for about 1
4. Raise the engine to full speed.
Once you have precoated the filter, the unit is
ready to perform the function of purifying water.
Every 30 minutes, check the chlorine residual, the
turbidity of the potable water, and the DE tank for
Backwashing of the filter must be done when the
pressure difference between the filter inlet and the
outlet exceeds 20 psi.
