Chris of Silver Cymbal YouTube channel installed an Aquor Water Systems V1+ for convenient outdoor water access on his Mattapoisett, Massachusetts property.
He added the sleek V1+ to his outdoor kitchen unit, connecting his new hose bib to the existing plumbing using PEX.
The outdoor kitchen is equipped with running water that Chris trenched from the house.
He selected the V1+ for its visual appeal and the fact that the faucet connector can be removed when not in use.
He started off by removing the back panel of his kitchen unit.
He selected an install location that would be high enough to reach with ease while avoiding a stud.
Chris drilled through the PVC, matching the entry hole size to the size of the Hydrant stem.
He attached a 1/2″ barbed fitting to the end of the Hydrant, using thread sealant to help secure it.
The Hydrant was ready to be connected to the plumbing.
He predrilled holes in the cabinet before screwing the Hydrant faceplate and cover in place to avoid cracking the PVC.
Chris connected a piece of PEX tubing to the barbed fitting at the end of the Hydrant, then used a tee connector to tap into the existing water line.
With the plumbing complete, Chris turned the water back on to test out the new system before closing up the back of the kitchen unit.
