Test & Check for Leaks
Test cover operation to check that it opens and closes smoothly. Insert Aquor connector and make sure the rod and valve open easily. Remove connector from hydrant before proceeding.
Now, head back inside to where the hydrant connects with the plumbing. With the Aquor connector unplugged from the hydrant, turn your water supply back on. Wait 2-3 minutes and inspect the plumbing to make sure there are no leaks anywhere along the supply line. If possible, have someone else operate the House Hydrant outside while you inspect for leaks.
Installation complete! The Aquor House Hydrant is now ready for use.
