JD of Rainfall Projects YouTube channel installed two Aquor Water Systems House Hydrant V1+ hose bibs for convenient outdoor water access on his Albany, Oregon farm.
JD’s wife, Kelly, wanted to run a waterline over to their berry patch for the drip lines. While he was at it, JD decided to run a waterline to the barn too. The project included replacing an old hose bib, as well as installing an Aquor Hydrant in a new location on the farm for easy water access.
In order to run a waterline to the barn and out to the drip lines in the berry patch, JD rented a ditcher from town and started digging.
He decided to expand his project and install a new hose bib in the grassy area in front of the barn.
With the trenches dug, JD started glueing and laying down 3/4″ PVC pipe.
He cut bases to enclose all of the irrigation boxes—otherwise the moles and gophers tend to fill them up with dirt.
JD attached the waterline to the barn and installed some valves for the drip lines. He used Aquor’s frost proof stainless steel Hydrants next to the garden and on the shed, so he won’t have to worry about pipes freezing during the cold winter months.
He also installed hose reels next to the new Hydrants for convenience and ease of use.
Looks like JD and Kelly are all set for simple garden irrigation!
