Silver Cymbal installed an Aquor Water Systems V2+ on his friend’s Massachusetts home for an outdoor water access upgrade.
They retrofitted the white V2+ on the garage, easily connecting the new hose bib to the existing PEX plumbing.
First they turned off the water to the house.
Then they unscrewed the spigot from the exterior of the house.
They cut the PEX plumbing with plastic pipe cutters before pulling the old sillcock out.
Next, they stuck the included template onto the siding to serve as a guide for cutting the V2+ entry hole with a hole saw.
They used an oscillating saw to cut the rest of the hole.
Then they attached an adapter to the end of the Hydrant so that the Hydrant could connect to the PEX plumbing.
They placed the Hydrant cover behind the faceplate, then screwed the Hydrant into place.
After securing the Hydrant, they cut the PEX plumbing to the correct length then simply slid the PEX over the barbed fitting attached to the Hydrant end.
They slid a stainless steel crimp ring onto the PEX then used a crimping tool to squeeze it tight.
After turning the water back on, they checked for leaks.
Everything was looking good, so they caulked around the Hydrant to seal it up on the outside—caulking may not be necessary for installs on flat surfaces.
That matte white stainless steel cover is looking sleek!
