“Plug And Go” Water Faucet“It’s the easiest outdoor faucet system you’ll ever use. It saves time and water,” says sales VP Shawn Tramble about Aquor Water System’s flush-mounted House Hydrant. It’s designed to replace your existing faucet and can be used with any garden hose.
The House Hydrant consists of a stainless steel stem located inside the wall, and a heavy-duty poly connector that attaches to your garden hose. The water flow starts immediately when you connect, and stops instantly when you disconnect. After you unplug, the Hydrant automatically self-drains to prevent freezing.
“It hooks up fast, with no need to thread the hose onto a faucet. You just plug the hose into the Hydrant and twist clockwise to start the water flow, then twist counterclockwise to unplug the connector and shut off the water,” says Tramble. “The system uses water pressure and O-rings to close the valve, creating a leak-proof seal.
“About half of our customers use the House Hydrant to replace their existing faucet. The other half are custom home builders.”
The House Hydrant is available in 6 different stem lengths to match your house’s wall depth, and 5 colors to match your home’s exterior. A variety of different hose connectors are available.
The company offers several different models. The House Hydrant V1+ includes a vacuum-breaker hose connector that prevents backflow. Water flow can be regulated via a ball valve shut-off, for tasks such as filling buckets or adjusting lawn sprinkler pressure. The connector’s downward angled handle provides extra leverage for an easier connection.
House Hydrants start at $84.95 plus S&H. The company is offering a 10 percent discount for FARM SHOW readers, with the code FARMSHOW at their website.
