Question

galvanized steel frost hydrant


i just called ferguson and they only carry galvanized steel frost hydrants. since the product is by definition buried and i was told not to bury galvanized steel cause it'll corrode, i was wondering if i should keep looking for a PVC one ? or is this not worth sweating over ? this is for my shed, to which i am running water supply using PVC sch 40.

C. Dedicated Underground Fire Line
When approved by the Authority Having Jurisdiction, a dedicated fire line may be connected prior to water meter with one main shut-off valve, located in the meter box, painted red, controlling both domestic and fire sprinklers. In which case the following requirements shall apply, see Exhibit B.
1) Underground fire line shall be installed using CPVC pipe that is listed and approved for fire service.
2) Underground fire line shall be inspected and flushed, in the presence of an inspector, prior to connection to sprinkler riser.
3) Depth of bury for CPVC piping shall be 36 inches. From here: http://fire.countyofventura.org/Link...mw%3D&tabid=58

This should help: http://books.google.com/books?id=fFk...esult&resnum=7

Someone may be confused.
Be safe, G

I have never seen a yard hydrant made of anything except galvanized pipe. If it worries you, paint it before installation with a metal paint. You will probably need to wipe the surface down with vinegar to remove the oil on it before painting.
