The University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus
Greenhouse air control unit installation
The University of Minnesota’s new greenhouse presented unique challenges when it came to finding the right hose bibb. The structure is climate-controlled by a row of air-control units that need a water source that can be quickly and easily winterized.
The standard solution would have been a traditional brass hose bibb (requiring tedious winterization after each use), or expensive insulated water lines. With the House Hydrant V1, the system disconnects in less than a second. Any splitter or accessory can be added downstream of the connector. After they disconnect, they are left with a secure, leak-free, frostproof stainless steel outlet.
