TASK 12-31-38-660-001-A
Cold Weather Maintenance - Water/Waste

WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER TANK IS DEPRESSURIZED.

CAUTION: MAKE SURE THAT THE DRAIN VALVES STAY IN THE DRAIN POSITION AFTER YOU DRAIN
THE POTABLE WATER SYSTEM IF:
- THE BLEED AIR SYSTEM IS OFF, AND
- THE OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 0 DEG.C (32 DEG.F).
THIS WILL PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE POTABLE WATER SYSTEM.

CAUTION: BEFORE YOU SUPPLY AIR FROM AN EXTERNAL SOURCE OR THE APU, MAKE CERTAIN
THAT :
- AT LEAST ONE COCKPIT WINDOW OR CABIN DOOR IS OPEN AND THAT IT REMAINS
OPEN DURING SERVICING.
- IF THE AIRCRAFT IS PARKED OUTSIDE AND IS NOT PROTECTED FROM THE RAIN ONE
MAINTENANCE DOOR OR AVIONICS COMPARTMENT ACCESS DOOR IS OPEN AND THAT
IT REMAINS OPEN DURING SERVICING.

1. Reason for the Job


To prevent damage to the water/waste system by ice when the aircraft is not supplied with power or other
sources of hot air.

NOTE: Although an aircraft is resistant to very low ambient temperatures, the cabin air conditioning (and WIPU
system) keep the pipes (and water systems) sufficiently warm to prevent them from freezing. However,
when the aircraft is not energized or stays on the ground at sub-zero temperatures, you must do addi-
tional procedures to prevent damage to the systems by ice.

NOTE: If the service panels or caps are frozen closed, it is necessary not to use force to open or release them.
It is necessary to apply hot air.

NOTE: If the SUPPORT WS PANEL DOOR is not available and if fill/drain valve handle is in DRAIN position,
the water-service panel door cannot be closed because of a mechanical stop. In this condition, the
water-service panel door is not safetied against wind effects. To prevent damage to the water-service
panel door in strong wind conditions, the fill/drain valve handle must be put in NORMAL position and
the water-service panel door must be closed.

4. Procedure
Subtask 12-31-38-660-050-A
A. Pre-Flight (First Flight of the Day)
(1) After draining procedure, because of low ambient temperatures you must obey the steps that follow.
(2) Make sure that all drain valves are closed.
(3) For the potable water system, do the steps that follow:
(a) Fill the potable water system with warm water of 30 deg.C (86.00 deg.F) maximum 30 minutes
before the engines start (Ref. AMM TASK 12-15-38-613-001) .
(b) Pressurize the potable water system (Ref. AMM TASK 38-10-00-614-001)
(Ref. AMM TASK 38-10-00-614-003) and examine the fill/drain valve for leaks.

NOTE: You can pressurize the potable water system with the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU). When
you start the APU, the system will start to pressurize automatically (Ref. AMM TASK 49-
00-00-860-003) (Ref. AMM TASK 49-00-00-860-005) (Ref. AMM TASK 49-00-00-860-
008) . The system will also automatically pressurize when the primary engines are star-
ted.

(c) Remove unwanted quantity of water from around the service panel before you close it.
(4) For the waste system, do the steps that follow:
(a) Pre-charge the waste tanks not more than 30 minutes before the engines start
(Ref. AMM TASK 12-16-38-613-001) .
(b) Remove unwanted liquid from around the waste service panel before you close it.
Subtask 12-31-38-660-051-A
B. Post Flight (Last Flight of the Day but not Transit Stops) (Ref. AMM TASK 12-16-38-613-001)
(Ref. AMM TASK 12-24-38-680-001)
(1) General:
(a) You must do the servicing of the potable water and waste water tanks as fast as possible after a
flight.
(b) Read tables 1, 2 and 3 (draining of the water/waste system) to find if it is necessary to drain or
not (refer to the ambient temperature and the cold soak period).
(c) After draining of the system and parking of the aircraft at temperatures below 0 deg.C (32.00
deg.F), do the steps that follow:
1 Install the SUPPORT WS PANEL DOOR (98D38108003000) to the potable-water system
panel-door.

2 Put the fill/drain valve handle in DRAIN position to open all drain valves and let remaining
fluid to flow out.

NOTE: If electrical power is not available, it is necessary to put the fill/drain valve handle and
drain valve handles in DRAIN position.

3 Do not install caps on the drain and fill/drain nipples.

NOTE: If you install the caps, the remaining fluid can freeze immediately behind the drain
and fill/drain caps and will cause:
- damage to the piping system,
- the system to become unserviceable,
- the next servicing will not be on time.

NOTE: The exposure time to weather conditions is approximate.

(2) Potable water system:

CAUTION: MAKE SURE THAT THE TEMPERATURE OF THE AIR SUPPLIED BY THE AIR-
CRAFT BLEEDAIR SYSTEM IS NOT HIGHER THAN 50 DEG.C (122 DEG.F).
IF THE AIR IS HOTTER THAN 50 DEG.C (122 DEG.F). IT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO
THE AIRCRAFT.

(a) If an aircraft park in very low temperature conditions, you must drain and clean the potable water
system.
(b) Pressurize the potable water system to remove the remaining water:
1 Drain the potable water system (Ref. AMM TASK 12-24-38-680-002) .
2 Close all lavatory and galley manual shut-off valves.
3 Close all potable water drain and fill valves.
4 Pressurize the potable water system (Ref. AMM TASK 38-10-00-614-001)
(Ref. AMM TASK 38-10-00-614-003) .
5 Open one manual shut-off valve.
6 Make sure that air but no water comes out of the faucet connected to the open manual shut-
off valve.

7 Flush the toilet until air but no water comes out of the toilet rinse valve (this part of procedure
is applicable to vacuum toilets only).

NOTE: It is necessary to do this procedure for all lavatories and galleys with the equipment
connected to the potable water system (for example water heater, coffee maker and
water faucets).

8 Install the SUPPORT WS PANEL DOOR (98D38108003000) to the potable-water system


panel-door.
9 Put the fill/drain valve handle in DRAIN position to open all drain valves.

NOTE: If electrical power is not available, it is necessary to put the fill/drain valve handle and
drain valve handles in DRAIN position.

10 Operate the water faucets in the galleys to bleed them.


11 You must do the procedure again as often as necessary to make sure that the remaining
water has drained fully.

NOTE: The draining procedure after the end of the water flow from the potable water sys-
tem, can take minimum 15 minutes. The altitude of aircraft has an effect on the time
of the procedure.

NOTE: If an aircraft was moved, all drain valve handles should be put in DRAIN position
again to make sure that all the remaining water is drained.

12 Depressurize the potable water system (Ref. AMM TASK 38-10-00-614-002) .


(c) If the potable water system is frozen or if it is not possible to drain the potable water system, you
must use an external or internal heat sources as given in Table 3.
