Tips:

  • Adhere painter’s blue tape to the siding directly above the Hydrant to help avoid scratching the paint while sliding the old cover up and off.
  • Brick will make swapping out your cover a bit more difficult without a PEX maintenance loop, so consider making upgrade decisions prior to installing your new hose bib. Lap siding may pose a similar situation for the V2 and V2+.
  • If your plumbing is extremely rigid, you probably won’t have enough wiggle room to switch out your cover. If possible, when installing your Hydrant use PEX tubing for flexibility and easier maintenance down the road.
