REPAIR OF WATER TANK ASSEMBLY
The water tank is suspended from the right side of the ceiling near the midpoint of the length of the shelter. The water
tank is of corrosion-resistant construction and has a capacity of ten gallons (37.8 liters). It is filled through a filler cap in
the roof of the shelter. A draincock is located in a fitting screwed into the bottom of the tank. (The tank will not drain fully
from the faucet unless the draincock is opened, as a standpipe is contained inside the tank to prohibit rust and scale from
being drawn into the piping system.) The draincock should be kept fully closed at all times except when draining and
flushing the tank. The water faucet is located in the water line directly below the water tank.
