- Ratings & Reviews
Frost-free yard hydrants are installed to provide water to various locations in the farmyard during all seasons of the year. They are manufactured and installed in such a way that they will operate throughout the winter without auxiliary heat.
A major component of a hydrant is a stop-and-drain valve. This valve is located below frost level, usually 2 to 3 m below the ground surface. The valve is operated by a lever or wheel that is connected to the valve by a control rod. When the valve is open, water flows from the supply line, through the valve, up the riser pipe and out through the head of the hydrant.
When the valve is closed, the flow of water stops, and a drain hole in the valve opens. The water contained in the riser pipe flows out of this drain hole into a gravel bed, leaving the riser pipe empty and preventing ice formation.
