- the pull lever with the + and - symbol is used to control the flow

- pressurized water source (Hydrant or Truck): the lever toggles the flow valve between open and closed
- drafting operations (Dry Hydrant, Draft Float or Drop Tank): the lever controls the suction strength

The impeller of the pump is free spinning in neutral.
That means that a pressurized water source can push water through it even if the engine is turned off.

You can use either the fuel pump or gas can to refuel the Portable Pump.
