Typical brass plumbing fixtures are designed to meet low cost requirements and exhibit poor quality and construction.
With the House Hydrant, every aspect and material was examined to create the most robust valve design possible.
The original valve concept was engineered for use on marine vessels, and later adapted for homes.
The hydrant body is marine-grade 316L stainless steel, and is virtually indestructible. The internal seals are Viton® O-rings, commonly used in aerospace and automotive applications and renowned for their long lifetimes and resistance to wear. Aquor hose connectors are not plastic, but rather molded from a high-tech polymer called Delrin®.
How do I use it?
With the Aquor connector attached to your garden hose, simply walk up to the hydrant and plug in.
Water flow starts immediately when you connect, and stops instantly when you disconnect.
After you unplug, the hydrant self-drains automatically to prevent freezing.
The resin is self-lubricating, and can withstand hundreds of thousands of cycles. While rugged, it’s lightweight enough to make carrying hoses easy, and won’t hurt anything (like your shins).
