We Supply Replacement Parts To Fit
American Darling Fire Hydrants
If you are considering digging up a fire
hydrant, rather than repairing it, consider these
Four Costly Facts
- Digging up a fire hydrant is costly, usually between $2000
to $4000 per hydrant, when all factors are considered. Factors to consider
include the cost of the hydrant, fittings, thrust block, replacement of shrubs,
tress, and sidewalks.
- Fire hydrants weigh a minimum of 500 pounds. The
amount of metal that fails in one usually weighs about 2 pounds. If it cost you
$2000 to replace the hydrant, then the failed metal cost you
$1000 a pound, which is the same price as a
pound of gold. Cheap metal in fire hydrants is not a bargain. We supply
high quality metals in our fire hydrant parts.
- Environmental Plus - Each new fire hydrant requires
about 165 kwh to produce. This is enough energy to heat 12 homes for a month. Our
upgrade hydrant only uses 8 kwh of energy to produce.
- Digging can be both hazardous and costly. Consider
the hazards of working around high pressure gas pipelines and underground electric
wires. Blocked traffic due to excavation puts those workers and the motoring public
at risk. The repair cost if you cut a fiber optics cable can be enormous.
