equipment and services want responders to know and understand the
following:
1. Firefighting and Emergency Response are inherently dangerous activities
requiring proper training in their hazards and the use of extreme caution
at all times.
2. It is your responsibility to read and understand any user’s instructions,
including purpose and limitations, provided with any piece of equipment
you may be called upon to use.
3. It is your responsibility to know that you have been properly trained in
Firefighting and /or Emergency Response and in the use, precautions, and
care of any equipment you may be called upon to use.
4. It is your responsibility to be in proper physical condition and to maintain

hazard. Per ANSI standard Z535.6-2006, the definitions of the four signal words are as follows:
DANGER
DANGER indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious
injury.
WARNING
WARNING indicates a 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.
NOTICE
NOTICE is used to address practices not related to personal 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
CAUTION
Any alterations to the Jumbo Siamese, the Jumbo Wye and its markings could diminish safety
and constitutes a misuse of this product.
Use with salt water is permissible provided the Jumbo Siamese or Jumbo Wye is thoroughly
cleaned with fresh water after each use. The service life of the Jumbo Siamese or Jumbo Wye
may be shortened due to the effects of corrosion and is not covered under warranty.
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.

3.0 INSTALLATION
Make connections to fire hose or fittings on each side of the Jumbo Siamese or Jumbo Wye.
WARNING
CAUTION
CAUTION
CAUTION
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.
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.
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 anti-corrosive lubricant should be applied to the
threads. Also the coupling should be disconnected and inspected at least monthly.
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
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
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.
Any alterations to the Jumbo Siamese or the Jumbo Wye and its markings could diminish
safety and constitutes a misuse of this product.
7.0 WARRANTY
