How a Yard Hydrant Benefits Your Atlanta Area Home
If you have a large yard and are constantly pulling out length after length of garden hose, then you could benefit from having a yard hydrant installed. A yard hydrant is an outdoor faucet installed at a spot far from your home, giving you a place to attach a garden hose near a garden or other area that needs watering and eliminating the need to pull a long length of hose attached to your home to access the water. This makes it much easier to keep your garden beautiful and healthy, even when it is planted in that sunny patch at the very back of your yard.
How to Install a Yard Hydrant
Installing a yard hydrant is not an easy task. In order for the hydrant to work properly, you must connect it to the water, which is typically located near your house, by running a length of pipe from the house to the hydrant. This requires digging a trench from the location of the yard hydrant all the way to the house. You must use a trencher to do this, which is a fairly large and dangerous piece of equipment. Dig the trench about two feet into the ground running from the hydrant to your home.
Once the trench reaches the house, you are going to need to drill into the house to insert the pipe so you can connect it to your water line. Once you have a hole big enough, insert PVC pipe and run a length of PVC pipe from the house to the hydrant. Then, connect the water and hope you have no leaks as you turn everything on.
As you can see, installing a yard faucet is not a simple job. In fact, for the average homeowner without plumbing or construction experience, this is not a DIY task at all. Because you will be drilling into your home, digging into your yard and working with your water line, which can leak and drive up your energy bills, you really need professional help. There’s simply too much that can go wrong, and mistakes when dealing with your water line and digging a trench in your yard can be costly. Before you begin the yard hydrant installation process, you need to talk to a skilled plumbing professional.
