A: The handle would be high, but unless you live in a warm climate, you'd run the risk of freezing at 2'. The unit is intended to be buried at 3' to prevent freezing. I will say that I've had several different brands of these faucets and this one is the best I've had.
A: yep. No problem. Just a foot higher
A: Yes, please search for item YHBA on HomeDepot.com.
A: Yes, if you can find the replacement piece. Be prepared with a sturdy vise and a large pipe wrench, or 2 people with pipe wrenches, that piece can be very stubborn to remove.
A: It says on the package that it contains lead and for non potable water use only.
A: Depending on your water source, yes. I'd give it a good flush first though.
A: Technically, this is a utility hydrant, so it should not be used for potable water. This is due to how the water is wasted from the weep hole in the valve; it could siphon contaminants from the ground. However, if you know there are no contaminants, there is nothing specifically about the hydrant that would preclude you from drinking from it. It is 3rd party approved to be low lead.
A: Yes. And with a hand shovel it's a long way down there too!
A: Yes. That is the total measurement top to bottom
