Drill Entry Hole
Prepare your home’s exterior wall by drilling the entry hole for the hydrant. You may need to enlarge the entry hole in your home’s wall if replacing an existing sillcock. Optimally, the center of the hole should be about an inch below the supply line to help water drain.
We recommend using a 1-9/16” (40mm) hole saw bit for the entry hole.
For the House Hydrant V2, you can also use a 1-9/16” (40mm) hole saw bit, however a slightly larger entry hole is required to fit the vacuum breaker.
