PART F - EXPENDABLE SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Determining Expendable Supplies. You must maintain a 30-day on-hand supply of expendable supplies. To monitor this,
the water team chiefs are required daily to provide completed Form 1713-R, and DA Form 1714-R (Fig. 1-6 thru 1-8). By
reviewing the daily results on these forms, you can establish historical data to enable you to forecast the need for expendable
supplies. The most common of these supplies for the 3,000-GPH ROWPU are fuel, oil, ROWPU chemicals, cartridge filters,
anise tape, O-rings, and lubricant. You will need to coordinate with DMMC based upon information from the OPLAN on the
turnaround time for ordering expendable supplies. To do this you will forward copies of DA Form 1713-R and DA Form
1714-R to the G4 and the DMMC.
DA Form 1713-R (Figs. 1-6 and 1-7) contains information about reordering supplies based on unit's basic load on hand;
rates of consumption of the products, size of issue, and the supply turnaround; organizing scheduled and nonscheduled
maintenance where one water point (or one ROWPU at each site) is always operational. It also provides information on
organizing personnel requirements for peak periods of production, issue, and maintenance, so that the water points are
properly manned; developing water issue and distribution schedules; analyzing any periods of downtime that impact
operations or any unusual consumption of supplies, and recommending corrective action as necessary.
DA Form 1714-R (Fig. 1-8) includes information about: identification of units using assigned water point or water
supply; verification of units arriving at scheduled times to receive water; verification of units receiving amount of water that
was planned; verification that the chlorine residual is at recommended level as prescribed by the surgeon general (refer to
Section I). In addition, DA Form 1714-R provides data to be used for the organization of personnel for peak periods of issue
and maintenance so that the water points a properly manned; analysis of any periods of downtime that impact operations or
any unusual consumption of supplies; and recommended corrective actions as necessary.
