(Throughout installation, refer to the parts list and schematic for visual aid.)
- Dig waterline trench to the desired depth.
- Screw 3″ PVC male adaptor x 4″ PVC Slip (CS-100-7) into 3″ brass coupler.
- Set assembled fittings into the trench and measure distance from top of fittings to the desired length.
- Cut the 4″ riser pipe to the desired length.
- Apply primer and glue to the 3″ PVC male adaptor x 4″ PVC Slip to the 4″ riser pipe.
- Apply primer and glue to the 3″ PVC male adaptor x 4″ PVC Slip to the top of the riser pipe.
- Screw the 3″ threaded locking nut to the PVC adaptor on the top of the riser pipe (no wrenches needed).
- Select an appropriate (i.e. brass adaptor, copper flare, fitting, etc.) fitting to connect the 3″ brass coupler to the waterline. Note: It is recommended that a 1 X 3″ or 1 X 4″ brass nipple be installed between the 3″ brass coupler and the fitting that will attach to the waterline. This nipple is used for securing the staple.
- Apply pipe sealant to the female threaded end of the fitting and screw them into the 1″ port of the brass coupler.
- Attach the assembled hydrant assist kit to the waterline. With a hammer, drive the 3/8″ stainless steel staple over the brass nipple to stabilize the unit. Note: The staple should be placed at a 45° angle to the nipple/fitting – making sure it comes in contact with both sides of the nipple/fitting. Do Not put the staple over the waterline – put it over the fittings as close to the 3″ brass fitting as possible. (Note: Do not cover drain hole with staple.)
- Put pipe sealant on the female threads of the hydrant or pipe to be installed into the hydrant assist kit.
- Carefully lower the hydrant or pipe into the assembled unit and screw the hydrant or pipe on to the center thread of the 3″ brass coupler.
- Turn on water and check for leaks.
- Install locking cap with the 2 bolts and tighten.
- Dump two 5-gallon pails of ½” washed rock (Do Not use sand) around the drainback area making sure the drainback hole is completely buried with washed rock.
- Bury unit with surrounding soil. For best results use hand level to keep unit straight.
- A 4″ riser pipe is required; a 3″ riser pipe will not work on Woodford Commercial hydrants due to size restrictions.
- You CAN NOT switch CS-100-4 with CS-100-7. CS-100-7 must be on the brass coupler.
