MainGuard #78 Blow-Off Hydrant

78_1The MainGuard #78 Blow-Off installs underground in a standard meter box. Designed and engineered specifically for flushing, the #78 provides excellent flow rates for improving chlorine residual levels and flushing disinfection byproducts (DBPs) to keep water safe for consumers. Its unique valve design allows for a full clear-channel flow (see illustrations) that is superior to other blow-offs for moving water and passing debris easily. The #78 plunger is also designed to allow for throttling the flow of water while at the same time covering the drain hole to avoid unnecessary erosion. The MainGuard #78 comes standard with all brass principle working parts, nozzle sizes 2 ½” NST or smaller, traffic break-away, self draining non-freezing, 2” FIP vertical (straight) inlet and locking security cover standard. The MainGuard #78 is fully serviceable from above ground.Certified to NSF/ANSI 372.
