Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, the Aquor House Hydrant is a complete in-wall faucet system.
The installation process is very similar to that of a conventional in-wall outdoor faucet. A typical installation takes less than an hour per hydrant. The House Hydrant can be attached to any type of water supply line. Simply thread in any universal 1/2″ NPT adapter, depending on your type of plumbing (copper, PEX, CPVC, or other). For the quickest and easiest installation, we recommend using the House Hydrant with PEX tubing. With copper plumbing, the House Hydrant’s two-piece design allows for easier and safer soldering than a standard sillcock.
It’s a quick coupler system that engages under full pressure. With the Aquor hose connector attached to your garden hose, you simply push and twist into the outlet. The plunger-valve opens and water begins flowing instantly. There is no screw and flat rubber washer like a traditional brass valve. Viton® O-rings seal tighter under pressure for a reliable water-tight seal, every time. The reliable valve design is designed for decades of zero-maintenance, drip-free use.
The main difference is the location of the vacuum-breaker.
The V1+ has a vacuum-breaker built into the hose connector, while the V2+ has a vacuum-breaker built into the hydrant faceplate.
The V1+ is slightly easier to install due to the smaller hydrant body, making it ideal for retrofits and remodels. However it requires the use of our vacuum-breaker hose connector to stay code-approved.
The V2+ allows you to use ANY Aquor hose connector, while still providing backflow protection. It’s ideal for new construction or commercial properties. The V2+ can be retrofitted if needed.
Our material choices are based on 15+ years of experience designing valves for marine applications. Aquor hose connectors are made from acetal resin, a heavy-duty commercial polymer. They can be used daily for years, are nearly crush-proof, and can withstand extremely high water pressures. Traditional brass hose bibs are certified to 100 lbs of lateral bending force. Our straight hose connector has been tested to 200+ lbs without breaking. If you are concerned about impact while connected, consider our Angled Hose Connector or Removable Faucet instead.
Yes, the House Hydrant provides excellent freeze protection. The inner valve stops water flow in the heated portion of your wall. The debris cover has a wedge backplate that keeps the hydrant angled slightly downward – when you unplug, gravity allows the water in the valve to drain. The stainless steel body provides significantly better insulation than a traditional brass frost-free sillcock. We have tested the hydrant to temperatures of -30° F without issues. As long as the hydrant is unplugged and the inside of your home stays above freezing, you will not need to use any additional protection (such as foam insulation covers). No hassles, no worries.
Any accessory with a standard 3/4″ hose fitting can be attached directly to the Aquor connector, like you would to the end of a standard outdoor faucet.
Y-splitters, water timers, vacuum breakers, and other accessories all work great with the Aquor system. Use multiple Aquor connectors to quickly swap accessories out without needing to unscrew them.
