Discover How Our Innovative Technologies Are Helping Water Districts Save Water and Prevent Costly Damage
Broken wet-barrel fire hydrants are a common issue that can result in extensive water damage to streets, sidewalks, and buildings – as well as resulting legal claims.
Fortunately, hydrant check valves offer a solution to this problem by preventing massive water surges from sheared hydrants.
Want to Find Efficient Ways to Improve Your Water District's Performance?
The solution is simple: Hydrant Guard stainless steel breakaway flanges.
Water providers can prevent water damage caused by broken fire hydrants by installing a specialized check valve between the hydrant and its water supply. In the event of a strike, the valve shuts and seals the top of the water main after a strike. Not only does it prevent massive surges of water, but it also mitigates property damage and liability.
Damaged fire hydrants pose significant challenges to property owners, water districts, and municipalities. Water operators not only have to contend with the immediate damage, but also face the costs of repairs and non-revenue water loss.
- Hydrant Guard's key features include a witness stream that signals a sheared hydrant, helping to improve emergency response times and reduce the risk of further damage.
- Hydrant Guard's breakaway bolts make resetting Hydrant Guard valves simple and cost-effective, allowing small crews to easily put sheared hydrants back in action.
By investing in Hydrant Guard, water providers can benefit in several ways:
- Reduced liability
- Improved resource management
- Environmental protection
- Enhanced reputation
