TM 5-4610-215-10 states that each batch charge has 3 gallons of
3 gallons times 128 ounces equals 384 ounces per batch.
Convert ounces to ml: 384 ounces times 29.573 equals 11,356 ml
72,000 ml per day divided by 11,356 ml per batch equals 6.34
batches per day.
TM 5-4610-215-10 states that each batch charge of sodium hex is
.1 pound times 6.34 batches per day equals .634 pound of sodium
hex per day for one ROWPU.
.634 pound per ROWPU times six ROWPUs equals 3.8 pounds per day.
Finally, multiply the pounds per day times the number of days of
the exercise for the total amount of sodium hex needed for the
PART D - MAINTENANCE SUPPORT
Coordination of maintenance support (unit or direct support) requires
that your water section can still maintain mission requirements. Be
sure that each water point has only one ROWPU down for maintenance at
a given time.
It may be necessary to rotate the ROWPU units to
maintain production rates at a water point that is required to
produce more potable water than other water points. Sometimes it may
be necessary to collocate teams (each team having two 600-GPH ROWPUs)
to meet mission requirements without operating equipment more than 20
hours per day.
Coordination with the division G4 and the DMMC for maintenance
support is required to ensure the mission requirements are met. They
can also upgrade priorities, if necessary, when ordering parts for
PART E - INSPECTING PURIFICATION OPERATIONS
You should inspect each water point daily using DA Form 5456-R. Some
water points may require more attention than others due to site
conditions or lack of experience of personnel operating the
equipment. Once the historical data are established, you may require
more or less inspections of a water point. When a
