1. Determine the location for the installation of the hydrant. The valve must be installed into a heated area of the structure that will not drop below freezing. Ensure there is adequate work room in the interior of the structure for securing
the hydrant to the plumbing piping. Bore the whole size listed above through the wall in the desired position for the
installation.
2. All freezeless wall hydrants require a slight downward pitch to aid the draining process of the hydrant once the product is turned to the “off” position. PRIER has machined an appropriate pitch into the casted backflange to assist and
ensure that a proper drainage pitch results after installation.
3. Position the spout of the hydrant in the downward position. From the interior of the structure, utilize the spout aligning
mark on the seat. When the mark is pointed down, the spout is oriented in the proper position on the outside of the
structure.
4. If you are planning to solder the connection (D, S or F style seats), be certain the hydrant is in the fully open position
to prevent seat damage from the heat. If you are installing using a threaded adapter, hand tighten until valve is snug,
then orient spout in the proper direction. Use a strap wrench if necessary. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
5. Connect the water supply piping to the freezeless wall hydrant as desired. With a closed-end hose on the valve creating back pressure, test the installation for leakage.
6. After the water supply connection is made, secure the hydrant to the structure using appropriate screws through the
two mounting holes on the casted back flange.
Operation:
Operation of the P-164/264 Diamond Series Quarter Turn Wall Hydrant is a simple process. Water flows through the
hydrant after turning the handle (or operating key for the P-264 style) counter-clockwise to the “on” position. Turn off the
hydrant by turning the handle clockwise to the “off” position.
The hydrant will drain for a few moments. If the dripping persists after a few moments, tighten the handle slightly until the
dripping stops. Be careful not to overtighten the hydrant.
The P-164/264 incorporates an integral atmospheric anti-siphon vacuum breaker that, in the rare occurrence of a back
siphonage, opens to the atmosphere preventing contamination of the water supply.
As well as an atmospheric vacuum breaker, the P-164/264 incorporates a backflow preventer that operates as a check
valve in the rare case that water is forced backwards into the valve. The backflow preventer has been tested to 125 PSI
pressure.
Maintenance:
*ALWAYS REMOVE HOSE DURING FREEZING TEMPERATURES*
*INTENDED FOR IRRIGATION USE AND OUTDOOR WATERING*
The PRIER P-164/264 Diamond Series Quarter Turn Wall Hydrant leaves the factory fully air tested and operational. It is
treated with an FDA approved lubrication. The hydrant requires no scheduled maintenance to provide long life.
