Monitor yard hydrants are famous for the dark green hydrant head, and uncommon handle position. These yard hydrants are continually tested by subzero temperatures. Commonly used year-round for home, lawn and farm applications. Much like Campbell hydrants, Monitor hydrants are produced by Baker Water Systems.
Appearance & Features
The Monitor hydrant boasts many features that help separate itself from the competition. The first being the combination of materials that make up the hydrant’s head. The head has a cast iron collar, with stainless steel hex screws and a handle made of ductile iron. Another feature that helps the hydrant stand out is the unorthodox position of the hydrants lever. In contrast to many hydrants, Monitor’s lever is located on the top of the hydrant for easy access, in comparison to behind the spout like many other hydrant brands. Finally, to help prevent leaks and freezes, the Monitor hydrant has no packing nut or valve rod. Overall, the Monitor hydrant has many features that help it provide exceptional service and reliability, even in the toughest of conditions!
There are many different places you can use a Monitor hydrant. The first being at home for an exterior watering source. Yard hydrants can help water outdoor plants, gardens, or even pets. Another place that could benefit from a hydrant would be a farm or ranch. An exterior water source can help rinse off tractors or trucks or water livestock. Yard hydrants can also provide water to help handle fires, in cases of emergency.
