The Woodford W34 complete head is a critical component of outdoor water supply systems, specifically frost-free hydrants. Let’s delve into its description:

  1. Design and Features:

    • The W34 complete head is designed for Woodford Model W34 frost-free wall hydrants.
    • It consists of several integrated parts that work together to ensure proper water flow and prevent freezing during cold weather.
  2. Components:

    • Handle: The handle allows users to operate the hydrant. Turning the handle counterclockwise opens the water flow, while turning it clockwise shuts it off.
    • Packing Nut: The packing nut secures the hydrant stem and prevents water leakage.
    • Stem Assembly: The stem extends down into the hydrant body and connects to the water supply line.
    • Seat Washer: The seat washer provides a watertight seal when the hydrant is closed.
    • Drain Hole: Some models have a drain hole to prevent freezing by allowing water to escape.
    • Vacuum Breaker: A vacuum breaker prevents backflow contamination.
    • Locking Mechanism: Some hydrant heads include a locking feature to prevent unauthorized use.
    • Material: The W34 head is typically made of durable brass or other corrosion-resistant materials.
  3. Functionality:

    • When the handle is turned counterclockwise, the hydrant opens, allowing water to flow.
    • Turning the handle clockwise shuts off the water supply.
    • The vacuum breaker prevents water from siphoning back into the water supply.
    • The drain hole ensures that any residual water drains out, preventing freezing.
  4. Installation:

    • Proper installation ensures optimal functionality.
    • The W34 head is attached to the hydrant stem, which extends through the hydrant body and connects to the water supply line.
  5. Compatibility:

    • Verify that the W34 complete head is compatible with your specific Woodford Model W34 hydrant.
    • Refer to the manufacturer’s documentation for precise installation instructions.
