PRESSURIZE FIRE HOSES WITH THE P-100 PORTABLE PUMP
When used for firefighting, the P-100 pump draws water from the sea. The water is then
pumped through individual fire hoses. If no other pumps on the vessel are operational,
the P-100 can be rigged to charge the fire main.
1. Attach a 3 inch suction line (figure 5, item 1) to pump suction fitting (figure 5, item 2).
2. Lower the suction hose section into the water making sure that the foot valve/strainer unit (figure 5, item 3)
remains submerged at least 1 foot throughout the operating period.
3. Attach a wye-gate (figure 5, item 4) to the pump discharge (figure 5, item 5) fitting by using a short 2½ inch
diameter extension hose (figure 5, item 6).
4. Attach one or two 1½ inch fire hoses (figure 5, item 7) with nozzles (figure 5, item 8) to the wye-gate
(figure 3, item 4).
5. If in a poorly ventilated area, attach a maximum of 20 feet of exhaust hose to the exhaust fitting.
6. Start the P-100 portable pump (S6226-NM-MMC-010/15852 REV B).
7. Verify that the fire hose(s) pressurize and are ready for use.
