The Model S3 hydrant is designed for use anywhere potable water is required. Unlike conventional hydrants which drain the water into the ground, the Model S3 employs a reservoir below frost line to contain the water. The hydrant is completely sealed to prevent surface and ground water from entering reservoir or service line. The valve, with it's unique venturi design, removes the stored water along with the water being used. The Model S3 is equipped with a diverter spout, which allows the hydrant to be operated independently from the backflow preventer. When the hydrant is to be used with a hose, the diverter sleeve is pulled down during flow and water is automatically diverted to the backflow preventer hose connection. The diverter will work with or without a hose attached to the backflow preventer and will automatically release any time the hydrant is shut off. An important feature of the S3 is easy maintenance. The entire working portion of the hydrant can be removed from the reservoir without any excavation.
