    This is a Corey double 4" steamer hydrant. Note the right outlet with the 'shoulder' behind the outlet. That is a gate valve which was operated by the nut seen on the top of the hydrant. This hydrant was made in the late 1800's!

    A engine company could attached a suction to the non-gated outlet and then another engine could connect to the gated outlet. They would be sure the gate was closed before removing the cap and once connected open the gate to receive water.

    These hydrants were noted to have at least 90 PSI Static Pressure and seldom would drop no more than 10 pounds, flowing 1500 GPM or more.


    The yellow caps meant it was on a water main of at least 12 inches. In fact this was on a 20 inch main.
