Frost Free Hydrants
Frost Free Hydrants
A slow dripping faucet outside can be easy to ignore, but please don’t!!! There is a very limited amount of maintenance that can be performed on frost free hydrants and when they are neglected, they suffer internal damage and are impossible to repair.
At Half Moon we say call on the first drop and if you’re a “do it yourself,” give us a call and we’ll try to help you trouble shoot over the phone. When a hydrant can’t be repaired by replacing washers and o-rings, it must be replaced.
Proper installation is critical when it comes to wall hydrants. Frost free hydrants should be anchored, sleeved, and sloped. Most hydrants we see are not anchored (even in new homes) this could allow the hydrant to over rotate compromising the supporting piping.
If a hydrant is not sleeved (protected) through brick or rock, it could eventually wear a hole in the pipe.
Hydrants without proper slope will hold water and be subject to freezing and busting. At Half Moon, our “plumbing with purpose” replacement frost proof wall hydrants are all sleeved, sloped, and anchored.
Call Half Moon today before that drip turns into a disaster!
What Our Customers Say
Absolutely loved how the business communicated with me; they sent me a picture of the tech before he arrived at my house. Tommy, the technician, was very knowledgeable in answering my questions. Will be a repeat customer!
Outstanding service! Every step of the process was met with enthusiasm and a complete explanation -
from the time I contacted Half Moon through the technicians arrival and the work he performed. Tommy quickly diagnosed and corrected two issues for our household. He was a perfect representative to a company we have come to trust. Thank you Tommy and thank you Half Moon.
Sam visited my house the other day for some minor issues. He was on time, was able to quickly diagnose the issues, and get them repaired on the spot. His demeanor was friendly and professional, and he took the time to explain the details regarding my repairs. This isn't the first time I've used Half-Moon Plumbing, and this visit exceeded the already high quality of service I've come to expect from them.
The plumbing tech that helped us switch from a standard hot water tank to a new tankless unit really knew his stuff. He came out to do an initial inspection and estimate. He explained everything that would be required for the installation and the types of tankless units we could go with. The installation was done professionally and cleanly with everything plumbed and routed as expected. I know we're going to enjoy having a constant supply of hot water while saving on our monthly gas bills. Also want to mention that I read the Half Moon Plumbing newsletter every month. When you see the kind of situations they are able to resolve for homeowners (where no one else could), you can see how committed they are to solving issues the right way, no matter how difficult the task is. I look forward to using Half Moon Plumbing in the future!
