Leave a comment

Our goal at Eagle Mountain Products is to ensure our customers buy the right outdoor watering device for their needs and then install the product correctly.  We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase of a high-quality Woodford product.  In addition we are the official online retailer for Woodford Manufacturing and carry the entire line of products.

We hope the following Q and A provides answers to some of your questions regarding the exceptional Woodford outdoor faucets:

Q:  How do I fix a leaky faucet?

A: There are several things that can cause a leaky faucet. A few examples are the packing nut may not be tight enough or the packing or vacuum breaker may be worn out and needs to be replaced.  If you are unable to determine where the leak is coming from, please call us at 800-308-0864.  Our knowledgeable staff can help to diagnose the problem and show you which repair kit you should purchase.

Q:  Is an outdoor faucet or hydrant repair easy to do?

A:  If you need to repair a Woodford product, we have a library of how-to videos to walk you through the steps.   Furthermore all of our yard hydrants can be repaired from the top of the unit so you are not required to take it out of the ground.

Q:  What is a Pressure Relief Valve (PRV)?

A:  Our Patented Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) prevents the faucet tube from bursting in freezing conditions, even if a hose is left connected to the faucet.  We have a video demonstrating how a PRV works in the faucet tube.

Q: Do I need a vacuum breaker, and if so, how do I install it?

A: If you have ever taken your hose off and had a splash-back of water, a vacuum breaker is designed to prevent that from happening.  We sell the Woodford Model 50 Auto-Drain Double Check Backflow Preventer that is the first ASSE 1052 approved automatic draining double-check backflow preventer. When a hose is removed from a Model 50 equipped wall faucet or yard hydrant, two linked but independent checks move as one to open a path through the valve allowing water to drain completely and prevent freezing.  Please see our Vacuum Breaker Repair installation video.

Answers Questions Regarding Woodford Faucets

We recommend that before you buy a new outdoor faucet or try to repair your existing one that you take a look at Eagle Mountain Products’ comprehensive website.  As the official online retailer for the Woodford Manufacturing Company, we stock and sell the complete line of high-quality faucets and yard hydrants.

In addition customers will find information about the Woodford product line that they will not find anywhere else.  We not only sell the products but do our best to educate customers in regards to buying the right faucet or hydrant and how to install and use it.

Here are a few questions that we are frequently asked regarding our Woodford frost free faucets:

Q: Do I need to buy a frost free faucet?

A: You do if you live in a climate that experiences freezing temperatures.  By installing a frost free outdoor watering device, you will protect yourself from ruptured pipes and any ensuing water damage that may occur.

 

Q: How do I install a frost free faucet so I know it will work properly?

A: The correct installation requires a downward pitch as it allows the water to drain from the faucet.  Please see our video on installing our most popular frost free faucets.  Also remember you will need to remove the hose during freezing conditions, otherwise it will prevent the water from draining out and can cause the pipe to burst.

Q:  I need help finding replacement parts for an older Woodford product.

A:  You have come to the right place.  We have repair kits for every faucet and hydrant built since 1929.   Check out our Repair Kit guide for further information and assistance.

Also remember that our frost free yard hydrants are a convenient way to water a large lawn or garden.  When you get a frost free model, you are protected against freezing as the shut-off valve for the hydrant is below the frost line when installed properly.  Once the hydrant is shut-off, and all devices removed from the nozzle, the hydrant will drain completely and the pipes will not freeze.
