Simple, straightforward and low shipping rates for these yard hydrants.
Q. "If I install one of these hydrants can I still get water from the faucet (hydrant) when it is freezing outside?"
A.The way these hydrants work is that once you turn off the water to these the water in the standpipe drains out leaving the upper pipe empty. In an extremely hard freeze (with a near 32 degree water source as well) the standpipe might be very cold and you won't be able to get any water. It also might then damage the standpipe. In most conditions this won't be a problem, but we do want to warn you as we cannot predict or guarantee that in all cases that these hydrants will function as they are designed to do in extreme conditions. Some freezing conditions are so harsh that burials as deep as 8' are needed. Due to shipping costs, we only sell up to 5' foot burial depths.
Q. "You list the burial depths for the yard hydrants; what does this mean? How much of the unit is exposed above ground?"
A. The listed burial depths show how much of the stand-pipe should be buried beneath ground level. The rest of the unit then stands an additional 3 feet above ground. (For instance, a unit with a 3-foot burial depth is actually approximately 6 feet long; 3 feet of it would be underground and 3 feet aboveground.)
