Daniel Woodell installed a sleek Aquor Water Systems House Hydrant V2+ for efficient outdoor water access on his Port Orchard, Washington property.
Daniel’s old hose bib froze and cracked, so it was time for a DIY project upgrade!
First, Daniel turned off the water inside the garage and drained out excess water from his old spigot.
He then unscrewed and removed the old spigot.
Daniel lined up the included Hydrant mounting sticker, then predrilled the mounting screw holes.
He used an 1-1/2″ hole saw and a jigsaw to cut the Hydrant entry hole.
For Daniel’s install, he attached a 90 degree elbow inlet to the end of the Hydrant. His piping is located above the Hydrant’s location in the wall, so he adjusted the 90 degree elbow to direct upwards.
He wrapped teflon tape around a SharkBite fitting before securing the fitting to the end of the elbow.
After placing the Hydrant debris cover behind the Hydrant faceplate and loosely securing the Hydrant to the wall, he returned to the inside of the garage to connect the plumbing.
Daniel opened up his interior wall to access the plumbing, then cut the existing PEX tubing to fit.
He returned to the exterior of the garage, loosened the screw holding the Hydrant in place, then connected his PEX plumbing to the SharkBite fitting.
After turning the water back on, Daniel screwed the Hydrant into place.
Easy water access, plus no freezing!
