MDRS Operations Report 15-17-OCT-2021

Name of person filing report: Shannon Rupert

Reason for Report: Routine

Non-nominal systems: water pump in Hab

Action taken for non-nominal systems: Ed was here to work on the telescope and he reported the pump in the Hab was working continuously through the night so he turned it off. The reason was that the loft tank was empty. I refilled it and pressurized the system and all is well again.
