    Just was wondering. As long as I have been in the business it has been my understanding that once you take foam out of the trucks tank that it it can not be reused or at least not put back into a vehicle? If this is the case, where can I locate the reference that states that?

    Thanks

    we are using Striker 6000 apparatus , every year we remove the AFFF 3 % from the foam tank and place it in clean flushed out storage totes . we then fill foam tank with water and flush tank and foam system ,as well as testing induction system by seeing how many loads of water we go thru till induction system has emptied foam tank .
    Foam is then placed back in tank and shortly after we usually conduct our yearly foam testing . foam passes test every time
