OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS
The drum is designed to operate normally within a wide range of climatic conditions. However, some extreme conditions
require special procedures to keep the drum operating properly and to prevent damage.

It is important to take the following measures to keep the drum as cool as possible.
As the water inside the drum heats up, the water will expand. This expansion of
the water could increase the pressure inside the drum to a pressure above the
maximum 5 psi operating pressure, which could lead to damage to the drum and
loss of the valuable water supply.
Do not block air circulation around the drum.
