Sigelock Systems Spartan Fire Hydrant
So i have watched many videos and looked at many pictures of the new Sigelock Spartan Hydrants. However, being a relatively new product there are not many "user" type reviews or comments on it. What do you all think about this new design?
They are a little to "Modern" looking for me (i find them ugly to be frank) but the whole locking system seems very innovative. I like how everything is enclosed and away from the elements. I do however think the proprietary locking device for the "security model" is awkward. not only is it another part you need to worry about but the continuity of... lets say mutual aid not having a "key for our lock" seems problematic. I am very interested to see how these hydrants work out in the few communities they are in because it is nice to have some new ideas in something relatively unchanged for decades.
