Leaking woodford hydrant
[Return to Topics]

just have to know someone here has had one apart.
Know it is leaking in the pump, not at a connection in the ground. Must be coming out of the drain hole at the bottom, not at the top outlet. On Woodfords web site they say you can replace any of the moving parts from above. Seemed like it was ok till I backfilled it with sand after letting it be exposed for a few months. Found out I should have used gravel to let it drain. However, could sand work up in the drainhole and cause the pump to not seal? Can I see pretty much what it all looks like by unscrewing it at the top and pulling the guts out? Pump is probably 15 years old. It is the 1" size pipe coming out. Thanks as usual Ret
