Repairs are performed at the lowest level of
maintenance possible. They are limited to
repairing small holes and tears in the outer shell
and replacement and adjustment of lacings. Since
the hose is part of the bladder system, repairs to
it are limited to tightening or replacing the clamp
and replacement of quick-disconnect fittings.
Cleaning is performed at the lowest
maintenance level possible. TO clean the
CSU-15/P anti-g garment, proceed as follows:
1. Seal the air inlet port with a cork or a
rubber stopper. Do NOT allow water to enter the
bladder. NEVER machine-wash or dry clean the
2. Immerse the garment in a solution of bacter-
iostatic detergent and cold water. Do not wash the
garments in hot water. Mix the detergent according
to the instructions printed on the container. If
instructions are not printed on the detergent con-
tainer, use a ratio of 1 cup detergent to 3 gallons of
water. Allow to soak for 5 minutes. Agitate gently
(by hand) for 2 minutes and drain the water.
3. Rinse in cool, fresh water, and then drain
the water. Repeat the rinse process until all traces
of detergent have disappeared from the rinse water.
4. To dry the garment, it is very important
that you do not try to wring, tumble, or spin dry
the garment. This action could damage the
bladder or air inlet port. The proper procedure
for drying is to hang the garment on a wooden
hanger in a dry, well-ventilated area. Do not dry
them in direct sunlight because ultraviolet
radiation can weaken the fabric.
