Waterous K869 Pump Shift Button
Shift Indicator Switch (prior to 04/06)
A Waterous K869 Pump Shift Button is a specific component used in some Waterous fire pump systems. This button is part of the apparatus control panel and serves as an actuator for engaging or disengaging the pump from the vehicle’s transmission or power take-off (PTO) system. When the button is pressed, it activates the pump shift mechanism, which allows the vehicle to transition between driving mode and pumping mode during firefighting operations.
The pump shift button plays a crucial role in the efficient and safe operation of a firefighting apparatus, as it enables firefighters to quickly and easily switch between driving and pumping modes as needed. This ensures that water can be supplied to hoses and nozzles when required, while also allowing the vehicle to be driven when necessary.
Over time, the Waterous K869 Pump Shift Button may become worn or damaged, leading to potential issues with engaging or disengaging the fire pump. In such cases, it is important to replace the button to maintain the proper functioning of the pump shift mechanism and ensure the safety and efficiency of the firefighting equipment. Always consult the manufacturer’s documentation or seek advice from a qualified technician to ensure you have the correct replacement part for your specific fire pump system.
