Dry Fire Hydrant Design #50 - Fixed Mount - Sheffield, Massachusetts
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By President Mark Davis
August 25, 2022

We recently installed a couple of our bridge-mount dry fire hydrants in Sheffield, Massachusetts. One of the installations replaced the "fixed" installation shown in these photos. While the strainer had silted in over time and the water flow had changed some, we were impressed with the design of the installation bracket. It was made of heavy gauge steel and well-anchored to the concrete bridge. Had the stream flow not changed over time and perhaps a different strainer used, this dry hydrant may have been salvageable. However, the new swiveling design eliminates the worry about silt and sediment buildup. Still....we really like the bracket design of the old dry hydrant and give kudos to whomever fabricated it.
