How do you repair a yard hydrant?

Answer

To repair yard hydrant, first find a supplier for your brand of hydrant then unscrew the head assembly from the riser pipe and pull up the connector rod. The seals and valve mechanism should come off with it then replace the worn or deteriorated components and reinsert the valve assembly. Thereafter, thread the head assembly onto the riser pipe, adjusting the plunger seating pressure as required.
