The C-1000 Series frost-proof yard hydrant from Merrill Manufacturing stands approximately 33 inches above ground, with hydrant bury depth or depth water lines buried underground. It features a level control, draw straps made of 1040 hot-rolled steel, a stainless steel operating rod, one-piece plunger, heavy-duty solid brass hose adapter and cast iron head. Its galvanized pipe has no exposed threads. The double-bypass valve body is designed to provide a large volume of water, and the locking eye on the head and lever allows the hydrant to be pad-locked shut when not in use. Merrill Manufacturing
