Filling up the tanks

A Quick Fill Pump

A quick fill pump is generally small engine powered pump, fitted to a frame to enable two people to carry this to a water source and with the use of appropriate hoses, fill appliances with water

Quick fill pumps are often carried on an appliance, or on a trailer towed behind a command or logistics vehicle.

Quick fill pumps can be placed adjacent to a water source, such as a creek or dam, or alongside a portadam, for use by crews, when more water is required.
