The uses, or applications, of our HAK products range from working with simple yard hydrant setups to more complex livestock watering systems. Whether you have to connect to a waterline below a home without a basement or to one that powers an irrigation system, the HAK will satisfy your needs.
The Hydrant Assist Kit (HAK) allows you to attach any hydrant to any size waterline. Once the HAK is installed future repairs/maintenance to the hydrant can be done easily with no need for excavating to disturb landscaping or utilities.
Livestock Watering Systems
The Hydrant Assist Kit (HAK) allows you to attach any livestock watering system to any size waterline. The HAK also allows you to convert any hydrant installed with a HAK to a livestock watering system with ease in just a few minutes.
Under Homes W/O Basement
The Hydrant Assist Kit (HAK) allows you to quickly and easily connect a home with out a basement to its buried water main. It also allows you to heat tape all exposed piping underneath the house to guard against freeze ups during winter months.
The Hydrant Assist Kit (HAK) is an efficient, economical device to attach lawn irrigation systems to underground waterlines/watermains. Use of the universal check valve (as seen to the left) in addition to the HAK allows you to turn the water from the main on or off by simply engaging or disengaging the check valve. This eliminates needing access to the homeowner’s utility room to do repairs/service or to blow the system out in the fall.
Example 1. For residential applications, the brass coupler of the HAK is connected to the waterlines and the riser pipe comes up in the bottom of the valve box of your sprinkler system. Use the universal check valve to install the pipe of your choice. Most people use 1″ Schedule 40 or 80 PVC with glue X female thread adapter – this will assure that the couplings will not unscrew if you remove pipe. If you use a 1 ¼” PVC pipe, you’ll need to use 1 ¼” PVC and glue x 1″ thread adapter.
Example 2. If vacuum breaker is required, install HAK 1’ above ground and install vacuum breaker out of the top of the assist kit to desired height.
