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:
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.
2.0 SAFETY
WARNING
Injury or death can result from burst hoses and fittings. Be sure the pressure
relief valve is set at the proper pressure for the type of hose and equipment you
are using. See NFPA 1961 and NFPA 1962.
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. See
appropriate guidance and training to reduce risk of injury.
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
Maximum operating pressure 250 PSI (17 bar). Do not exceed 250 PSI on either
side of the valve.
CAUTION
Valve must be properly connected. Mismatched or damaged connectors may
cause leaking or uncoupling under pressure and could cause injury.

3.0 GENERAL INFORMATION
Valve Position Indicator
The Ball Intake Valve is intended for use on the intake
manifold of a fire engine. The valve is kept closed while
the water supply from a hydrant or another pumper to
the engine is being established. This prevents the pump
from sucking air through the intake manifold and losing
its prime. Once the supply hose is filled and under
pressure, and the air has been vented from the hose, the
valve may be opened to connect the pump to the water
supply. An adjustable pressure relief valve mounted on
the bottom of the valve opens to relieve any excess
pressure that may damage the hose or the pump. The
Task Force Tips Ball Inlet Valve has a unique patented
half ball, with a thermo-plastic rubber seat, and acts
much like a gate valve.

Air Vent & Drain
Pressure Relief Valve
Hose couplings are attached using polymer bearing rings
which provides electrical insulation to help prevent galvanic
corrosion. In the past some valves were made of bare
aluminum. Task Force Tips is using a three-step process to fight corrosion. The cast aluminum parts in this valve have
been impregnated to fill the microscopic pores in the cast aluminum. The parts are then hard anodized, and finally
powder coated, inside and out, to help prevent corrosion. The effects of corrosion can be minimized by good
maintenance practice. See section 9.0 for maintenance.
3.2 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.
4.0 INSTALLATION
4.1 MOUNTING ON TRUCKS
Screw the large coupling to the pump inlet manifold. The valve position indicator should be clearly visible, but need not
be level.
4.2 CHANGING HAND WHEEL TO LEFT SIDE

SHAFT ASSEMBLY
KEY
The handwheel is shipped from the factory on
the right hand side of the valve. The hand wheel.
can be switched to the left hand side for
convenience or if it interferes with other
equipment on the pump panel.
To move the hand wheel to the opposite side,
unscrew the jam nuts on the end of the shaft.
Pull the shaft out of the gear box. As the shaft is
withdrawn, grasp the small key on the shaft so it
does not fall and get lost. Remove and switch
the two plastic bushings that come out of the sides of the gearbox. The
bushing with the large hole is installed on the same side as the
handwheel. Look through the gear box and note approximate position
of the keyway in the worm inside the gear box. Slide the shaft into the
gearbox on the opposite side of the gear box with the key oriented the
same as the keyway. A small dab of grease will keep the key place.
Rotate the shaft until the key finds the keyway and push the shaft in until
it stops. Screw on the nut until it is 1/6 turn past finger tight. Tighten the
second nut against the first one. If you over tighten the first nut, the
crank will be hard to turn.

5.0 USE
5.1 INTAKE ELBOW
The intake elbow swivels 360 degrees to help prevent hose kinks, and make connection of suction lines easier. The intake
can be turned forward or backward to help make connections in tight places if the water supply is in front of or behind the
truck. To turn the elbow, pull the shot pin knob on top of the elbow. The elbow will lock into a detent every 45 degrees.
There is a hole on the side of the elbow that can be used to attach the lanyard or chain of a cap by use of a key ring . The
elbow may be swivelled to any of eight positions by pulling the shot pin knob.
5.2 VALVE POSITION INDICATOR
To open the valve turn the hand wheel until the valve position says "OPEN". To close the
valve turn the hand wheel the opposite way until the valve position indicator says "CLOSED".

5.3 STORZ ‘SUCTION GASKET’ REQUEST
6.0 AIR VENT AND WATER DRAIN
This valve is equipped with an Air Vent/Drain which will allow the air to escape from the valve when the hose is charged.
The Air Vent/Drain is opened by turning the knob counter clockwise and closed by turning it clockwise.
To drain the water out of the valve after use open the Air Vent/Drain. A 1/2” diameter plastic tube may be used to run the
drain behind the pump panel.
7.0 PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE
CAUTION
Loss of prime can interrupt water flow and cause injury or death. Always bleed
out air with air valve to prevent possible loss of prime.
There is a pressure relief valve on the bottom side of the valve. It may be set to any pressure between 50 and 200 p.s.i.. Its
function is to protect the pump and the supply hose from excess pressure. The relief valve may be mounted with its
opening facing the front, back, right or left. A piece of hose or tubing may be mounted on the round spout to direct the
water coming out of the relief valve away from the pump panel. To change the orientation of the relief valve, remove the
four 7/16 bolts on the corners of the relief valve flange, orient the valve the way you want it, and replace the bolts. Use a
drop of thread locking compound on the threads of the bolt to prevent them from coming loose.
7.1 RELIEF VALVE SETTING PRESSURE
To set the relief valve pressure turn the adjusting screw on the relief valve housing until the surface of the screw is even
with the desired pressure. Do not cap or plug discharge opening.

9.0 MAINTENANCE
This valve should be disconnected, cleaned and visually inspected inside and out at least once per month. Moving parts
such as hand wheels, valve ball/seat and couplings should be checked for smooth and free operation and greased as
needed. A silicone based grease such as Dow Corning 112 will exclude moisture and retard the effects of corrosion. Any
scrapes that expose bare aluminum should be cleaned and touched up with enamel paint such as Rust-Oleum. Replace
any missing or damaged parts before returning valve 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 Ball Intake Valve and its markings could diminish safety
and constitutes a misuse of this product.
