General Guidelines For Intake Valve Operations
- Untrained personnel should never be able to operate or use large diameter hose or appliances.
- Inspect all connections to insure tightness for reducing the possibility of accidental disconnection.
- Open and close valves slowly, to reduce the possibility of damage or injury due to water hammer.
- Secure adapters, valves and other appliances with proper vehicle mounting brackets to prevent them from falling off the vehicle.
- Clean, lubricate and perform necessary maintenance on all moving parts periodically. This is especially important for intake valves left attached to the vehicle.
- Store valves in the closed position when not in use.
- Test relief valves periodically, to be sure they are relieving properly.
- Set relief valves at a pressure 10 psi higher than your normal working pressure.
- When performing annual hose testing, be sure to use Storz test caps and adapters to prevent gasket failure.
- Operate the inlet and outlet with standard rocker lug spanners and Storz wrenches
