I noticed on WP 0008-2 of the M26 decon’s TM 3-4230-238-23&P (Nov 09) that the water pressure gauge is supposed to be calibrated every 1,080 days. The M26 is considered NMC if the gauge hasn’t been calibrated or the TMDE calibration sticker is missing.
I suspect most decon units aren’t aware of this. Units need to have the water pressure gauge enrolled in the local TMDE program.
Editor’s note: I suspect practically no decon units are aware of this. Thanks for pointing this out, David.
