FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does the Mini-Hydrant require installation?

Yes, it is a flush-mounted in-wall outdoor faucet system. It connects to your plumbing inside the wall just like a standard hose bibb or other plumbing fixture. You’ll need to drill a 1.5″ hole and thread in the appropriate 1/2″ NPT plumbing fitting for your supply line type.

For the quickest and easiest installation, we recommend installing with PEX tubing, but copper is also compatible. Make sure to use plenty of teflon tape when threading in your fitting. The optional 90° elbow inlet can be positioned in any direction while maintaining a watertight seal.

What else do I need to install?

You will need a 1.5″ hole saw, a 1/2″ NPT male-threaded plumbing adapter, teflon tape, and a philips screwdriver.

Can I install it vertically?

For vertical installations, we recommend our Marine Deckwash or Ground Hydrant instead. The Marine Deckwash has an impact-resistant swivel cover and mounts directly to a surface (no wedge backplate like the Mini-Hydrant). The Ground Hydrant has a special draining mechanism that allows it to remain freeze-proof.

The Mini-Hydrant is very similar to the Marine Deckwash. The main difference is the cover design. The Mini-Hydrant’s polymer debris cover is engineered for weather resistance and while fairly tough, it is not designed for heavy loads and shouldn’t be walked on. We do offer a stainless steel cover option. You’ll also notice the cover has a 5° wedge that sits behind the hydrant’s faceplate to keep it angled slightly downward. This allows the hydrant to self-drain. The hydrant will operate just fine without the cover installed, but will not drain as well. This is not a problem in warm climates, but not recommended if there is risk of freezing.

Will it provide freeze protection?

If disconnected, the mini-hydrant provides better freeze protection than a traditional brass hose bibb, but is not recommended for cold climates.
