Set up 3,000-Gallon Water Tank
Three people are required to lift the 3000-gallon water tank. Serious injury to personnel could
result from improper lifting.
In climates where the temperature could drop below 32 F, place a piece of insulation
sheeting under the water tank before filling. If in doubt, always install the insulation, as the
insulation cannot be fitted under a filled tank.
Position 3000-gallon water tank within 15 feet of the container.
1. Place a piece of 16-foot x 16-foot insulation sheeting (1) under in position of water tank (2).
2. Set up 3000-gallon water tank on the 16-foot x 16-foot insulation sheeting (1) IAW TM 5-5430-237-
3. Install both 2-inch valve assemblies (3). Ensure hoses can connect to both valves without straining.
Both 2-inch valve assemblies must be fitted before the tank is filled. Attempting to fit
valves on a filled tank will result in loss of potable water.
4. Fill tank (2) with Army Medical Department (AMEDD) approved potable water.
