OTHER EQUIPMENT
5.2.1 PORTABLE EQUIPMENT.  The following equipment should be available on
each hose transfer vehicle to assist in making hose connections/disconnections:
a.
Hose Handling Equipment
Flat-bar hose supports
Clean male and female connector dust plugs
and caps
b.
Special Tools
Four-inch plug valve handle (wrench)
Set of flange bolt wrenches

c. Sewage Spill Cleanup Equipment
Hose for flushing area
Several gallons of strong disinfectant solution
in tank with eductor
Dry phenolic concentrate
Standard stock detergent liquid
Bucket
Cleaning handbrush
Protective clothing
The cleaning hose should be adapted for connection to the pier salt
water supply.  The eductor is fitted to the disinfectant solution tank on
the truck so that the mixture can be applied to the spill area.  This will
be described in more detail in Chapter 8, Section 2.3. Dry phenolic concen-
trate may be used to replenish the disinfecting solution while the crew is
away from the yard, or it may be spread in spill areas.  The detergent,
bucket, and handbrush are used to clean the exterior surfaces of hoses and
pier risers that may have been contaminated in a spill.
5.2.2 POWERED HOSE REEL.  The major piece of optional equipment which may
be carried aboard a sewage hose transport vehicle is the powered hose reel,
as illustrated in Figure 4-1.  This device permits highly mechanized loading,
delivery, pickup, and unloading of the hoses.  Operation of the powered hose
reel has already been described in Chapter 4.
5.2.3 PROTECTIVE CLOTHING.  Protective clothing for the shore crew should
be carried aboard the transport vehicle.  The protective clothing should be
used primarily when cleaning sewage spills and handling hoses and risers
