1.0 MEANING OF SIGNAL WORDS
A safety related message is identified by a safety alert symbol and a signal word to indicate the level of risk involved
with a particular hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.4-1998 the definitions of the three signal words are as follows:
2
DANGER
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury.
1.1 SAFETY
WARNING
This equipment is intended for use by trained personnel for firefighting. Its use
for other purposes may involve hazards not addressed by this manual. Seek
appropriate guidance and training to reduce risk of injury.
WARNING
Burst hoses and fittings can result in injury or death. Maximum operating
pressure of TFT's Jumbo Siamese and Jumbo Wye is 250 psi (17 bar). Do not
exceed 250 PSI on either side of the appliance.
Per NFPA 1962 3 ½ to 5 inch (90-127 mm) hose marked SUPPLY HOSE shall not exceed 185 PSI (13 bar).
Per NFPA 1962 6 inch (152 mm) hose marked SUPPLY HOSE shall not exceed 135 psi (9 bar).
CAUTION
Any alterations to the Jumbo Siamese, the Jumbo Wye and its markings could
diminish safety and constitutes a misuse of this product.
2.0 GENERAL INFORMATION
The Jumbo Siamese and Jumbo Wye are intended for use in a hose line, on a fire hydrant, or an intake or discharge
manifold of a fire truck.

2.1 CORROSION
The aluminum castings are hardcoat anodized, and TFT powdercoat finished inside and out for maximum corrosion
protection. Hose couplings are attached using polymer bearing rings which provides electrical isolation to help
prevent galvanic corrosion. The effects of corrosion can be minimized by good maintenance practices. See Section
7.0 for maintenance.
2.2 USE WITH SALT WATER
Use with salt water is permissible provided valve is thoroughly cleaned with fresh water after each use. The service
life of the valve may be shortened due to the effects of corrosion and is not covered under warranty.
3
3.0 INSTALLATION
Make connections to fire hose or fittings on each side of the Jumbo Siamese or Jumbo Wye.
WARNING
Kinks in supply hose may reduce water flow and cause injury or death to persons
dependant on water flow. When this valve is used on a hydrant or fire truck it is
recommended that it be used with an elbow to minimize risk of hoseline kinks.
CAUTION
Jumbo Siamese and Jumbo Wye’s must be properly connected. Mismatched or
damaged connectors may cause leaking or uncoupling under pressure and
could cause injury.
CAUTION
Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion that can result
in the inability to unscrew the threads or complete loss of thread engagement
over time. Per NFPA 1962, if dissimilar metals are left coupled together an anticorrosive lubricant should be applied to the threads. Also the coupling should be
disconnected and inspected at least monthly.
CAUTION
Male fire hose threads are sharp and can cause injury. Be careful when around
male hose threads.
4.0 USE
The couplings of Siamese and Wye models swivel to help prevent hose kinks, and make hose connection easier. Male
hose thread inlets are locked so that they will not rotate.
The Jumbo Wye fitting can be used to join the flow of two water sources together into one, or in the opposite direction to
split one water source into two. The flow direction in our out of any opening is possible.
The Jumbo Siamese valve can only flow water in one direction ONLY.
Water entering from either one or both Side A will exit through the single Side B discharge outlet. A swinging clapper
assembly prevents backflow through either leg of the Side A openings. An indicating pointer shows the position of the
clapper.
CAUTION
4
Jumbo Siamese will not flow water from Side B to both Side A openings. Do not
attempt to flow water in one Side A opening and out of the other Side A opening.
This valve contains a swinging clapper assembly that will prevent backflow
through one leg of the Side A openings.

6.0 MAINTENANCE
The Jumbo Siamese and Jumbo Wye should be cleaned and visually inspected inside and out at least once per month.
Moving parts such as clapper and couplings should be checked for smooth and free operation and greased as needed. A
silicone based grease such as Dow Corning 44 will exclude moisture and retard the effects of corrosion. Any scrapes that
expose bare aluminum should be touched up with enamel paint such as Rust-Oleum to inhibit corrosion. Replace any
missing or damaged parts before returning the appliance to service.
CAUTION
Dissimilar metals coupled together can cause galvanic corrosion that can result
in the inability to unscrew the threads of complete loss of thread engagement
over time. Per NFPA 1962 (1998 edition), if dissimilar metals are left coupled
together an anti-corrosive lubricant should be applied to the threads. Also the
coupling should be disconnected and inspected at least quarterly.
CAUTION
Any alterations to the Jumbo Siamese or the Jumbo Wye and its markings could
diminish safety and constitutes a misuse of this product.
