A frost-proof hydrant is an ideal component to go with a larger water storage system. A frost-proof hydrant is designed to provide water for outdoor uses all year round. Rain Harvesting Supplies, an online retailer of water tanks and rain harvesting components, offers one of the best and most affordable frost-proof hydrants on the market.
The frost-proof hydrant by ProPlumber is sure to satisfy your requirements for an outdoor faucet. This hydrant is allows you to retrieve water even when temperatures are freezing outside. The way it works is that when you shut off the water, the water remaining in the standpipe drains out, leaving the above-ground section of the pipe empty.
Under the most extreme freezing conditions you may have difficulty getting water out of the hydrant. If water doesn’t come out, don’t try to force it, because you could damage the hydrant. In most conditions retrieving water from the hydrant won’t be a problem, but it not guaranteed in extreme conditions. Under the most harsh conditions the hydrant may need to be buried as deep as 8’.
