The C1000 yard hydrantis freestanding and is composed of a castiron head, a heavy duty galvanized pipe, a brass valve body and a plunger in ethylene propylene. Once installed, the handle will be at about 90cm above ground, optimised for the most comfort when opening and closing. The plunger is adjustable, and can easily be replaced, after 15 or 20 years.

  • The C1000 can be locked to prevent vandalism.
  • The C1000 is very sturdy.
  • It drains automatically to prevent any damage caused by freezing temperatures.
  • Practical and economical.
  • Removable and easy to install.

We are always happy to advise on how best to install:

  • The bury depth should be 60cm or 90 cm underground or at the frost-free depth of your region. Hydrants are available with bury depths up to 3m underground.
  • At the connection, always use fabric to prevent sediment from damaging the plunger. A brick or similar block under the connection will prevent the hydrant from sinking in the pea gravel used for drainage.
  • Always connect to a water line below the frost level

C1000 hydrants are available in 60cm and 90cm but please ask us if a different bury depth is needed.

How Does It Work?

  • The lever (1) opens and closes the hydrant (opened when the lever is up and closed when the lever is down).
  • The rod (2) is connected to the plunger (3) and closes the drain (4) when the lever is in the open position, allowing the
  • Perform the opposite action to close the water by pushing the lever down and the purge will open and drain automatically preventing water from staying in the pipe and causing it to burst in freezing temperatures.
  • The user has water available year-round.
  • The plunger is placed against the valve body to guarantee impermeability.
  • The plungers (3) are made of ethylene propylene for the C1000 series (material that is self-lubricating and will not bond to the brass valve body)
