    Post Hydrant Testing

    I'm looking for a hydrant diffuser for testing. What is a good one to get? I've looked at the swivel Piezo from WS Darley and one from Halprin. What are your thoughts?

    We are currently using the Swivel Piezo Diffuser on our 4 1/2" steamer ports. Works fine for what we use them for. The only down side is the weight. After testing hydrants all day you swear its a boat anchor.

    CaptCraig,
    We use the same as Mike B. The Swivel Piezo Diffuser w/ 4 1/2" threads. We purchased it through the Pollard Co. in Long Island, NY. Try www.POLLARDWATER.com. Been using them about 6 years now. Like them alot.

    Mike B, I agree about the weight. We had a local welder fabricate a large looping handle attached on both sides. Works great!
    I can easily flush, inspect and log GPM on about 50 hydrants a day.

    Hope this helps,guys.
