Bill and Sue own a mobile home park. Its water service used to be from hydrants. They had problems getting the hydrants to shut off after being open for long periods of time, and they would sometimes freeze up when the weather got bad. With those problems in mind, they have chosen Thermal Pipe Packages to supply the homes. Shutting the water off is now easy not to mention they never worry about the lines freezing up. Sue simply plugs them in when the weather gets cold. Bill even added Universal Check Valves to some sites that weren’t being used so he could remove the supply line but still have access to the water main when he wants to reactivate the site.
Bill and Sue used to tell their residents to leave a small stream of water running to keep the hydrants thawed during cold snaps. After they made these upgrades, they realized they don’t need to waste any water; they just plug the Thermal Pipe Package in to keep the line thawed.
