Hydrant Guard®

Hydrant Guard logoHydrant Guard® is a patented, easily installed above-grade valve attachment that prevents sheared fire hydrants from releasing water surges. Offering a cost-effective solution to wet-barrel hydrant shears, Hydrant Guard® can lead to millions of gallons of savings for urban water suppliers

Learn More About Hydrant Guard

Fitting between the bottom flange and the wet-barrel hydrant, Hydrant Guard® can be installed or reset by a single operator with a single tool. Its 100% 316 stainless steel construction provides strength and weather resistance, while guaranteeing conformity to all water system material regulations.

When not in operation, Hydrant Guard® goes unnoticed with no reduction in flow. As soon as a hydrant shears, the valve plates spring into action and effectively shut off water flow, leaving only a witness stream to alert responders.
