Water Source is a popular yard hydrant brand. Retailers such as Menards, Home Depo, and Tracker Supply sell Water Source hydrants. Based out of Norwalk, Ohio, Water Source LLC has been in the industry for over 15 years. They offer two sets of yard hydrants. The red set is the older more proven series, while the blue series is the new and improved option.
Water Source hydrant heads are famous for their dark blue and red colors. Their simple design allows for easy repair directly from the surface. Offered in 1-5 ft bury depths, which allow these hydrants to work in a variety of environments. Each hydrant features a shut-off valve below the frost line to prevent freezing. A 1-inch galvanized steel standpipe connects the shut-off valve to the hydrant head.
Red vs. Blue
The red hydrant is the older series that is no longer sold in stores. Replacement parts can be bought for the red hydrant, but consumers can’t buy the full yard hydrant anymore. The blue series is the new and improved design that is sold in stores. The blue series features a smaller clevis rod, brass connector, and packing nut. It also features new set screws for a stronger hold.
