SET UP WATER SYSTEM EXTERNAL COMPONENTS
Determine what external water systems components will be needed. This will depend on the availability of
freshwater, and the method of wastewater disposal. If municipal facilities are available, the CSSL can be
connected directly to a water supply source. Similarly the CSSL can be connected to a sewer system for
wastewater disposal. Alternatively, the 3,000 Gallon collapsible fabric tanks furnished with the CSSL can
be used for both freshwater supply and wastewater collection. However, this will require regular services
using water tank trucks for resupply and wastewater collection trucks for disposal to keep the CSSL in
operation. Place the water system components to be used in position as shown on the following
illustration, observing the distances indicated.
If municipal fresh water is not available, employ the 3,000 Gallon
collapsible fabric tank labeled FRESHWATER TANK, with subsequent
refilling by tanker. Keep the tank and freshwater hoses away from
wastewater hoses and any wastewater storage in the vicinity. Serious
health problems may result from water contamination. Refer to TM 5-
5430-227-12&P for instructions to set up and prepare the tank for
To connect the freshwater supply, lay out and connect the 2 inch freshwater hose (1) from the freshwater
entry panel (2) on the container curbside wall, to the 3,000 Gallon collapsible fabric storage tank labeled
FRESHWATER TANK (3).
Fill the 3,000 Gallon collapsible fabric storage tank labeled FRESHWATER TANK (3) with freshwater.
If municipal water is available a regular garden hose (obtain this hose from the footlocker) can be
connected between the municipal supply and the ¾ inch hose fitting (4) on the freshwater entry panel.
Ensure that wastewater is properly disposed of either through an
approved municipal sewage system, or collected in the 3,000 Gallon
collapsible fabric tank labeled WASTEWATER TANK, with subsequent
evacuation by tanker. Keep wastewater hoses away from freshwater
hoses and any freshwater supply in the vicinity. Serious health problems
may result from water contamination. Refer to TM 5-5430-227-12&P for
instructions to set up and prepare the tank for operation.
To connect the wastewater drain, lay out and connect the 2 inch wastewater hose (5) from the
wastewater panel (6) on the container curbside wall) to the 3,000 Gallon collapsible fabric storage tank
labeled WASTEWATER TANK (7), or a designated municipal disposal point (8).
