Prier P-6IV 8" Irrigation Valve, 1" MPT x 3/4" FPT Inlet - P-6IVN08
The PRIER P-6IV provides an irrigation supply for your sprinkler system in areas subject to freezing temperatures. The valve is installed from the exterior of the structure with the supply piping and shutoff through the structure to the heated portion, eliminating the possibility of freezing. To assure freeze protection year round this hydrant must be winterized by closing the valve and opening the ¼” NPT drain plug which can also be used to blowout the downstream irrigation system. Having the valve on the exterior of the structure enables a professional to winterize your system without the need to come inside or the owner to be present.
This heavy duty hydrant has a high flow rate. A removable operating key is provided to prevent unauthorized tampering. No special installation tools are required.
