Step 3. Place a large, empty container in the natural source of water. Place the foot valve assembly in
the large container to prevent mud from being drawn into the pump.
Step 4. Connect one end of the blender-agitator hose to the pump unit bottom discharge connection and
the other end to the water heater bottom connection.
CONNECT THE M2 WATER HEATER
To connect the M2 water heater, use the following procedures.
Step 1. Open the storage compartment on top of the M2 water heater. Remove the fuel lines, power
cable, and water hose. Do NOT disconnect the power cable or water hose from the M2 water heater.
Step 2. Connect the free end of the water hose to the upper discharge pipe on the connector panel.
Step 3. Remove the caps from the quick-disconnect coupling fuel supply and return lines in the skid
assembly base. Connect the fuel supply and return hose quick-disconnect coupling halves to the
connector. Pull on the connected hoses to make certain they are securely fastened.
Step 4. Connect the free end of the power cable to the heater receptacle. Make certain that the heater
receptacle and switch is in the OFF position. The configuration of the pump unit, M2 water heater,
hoses, and electrical cable should appear as in Figure 35.
