A: Because not everyone will put an elbow on it so they don’t include a potentially useless (and more costly) part. Read the product description for thread sizes. They are clearly listed.
A: It is threaded in case you would want to drain the water away to a remote drain field. This would commonly be done if you had the the yard hydrant buried in concrete, for example. You may not want to have a bunch of standing water under concrete. If you have it buried in a proper gravel bed though, you should be fine to have the drained water weep out right at the hydrant. It is threaded for 1/8-in female NPT.
A: My hydrant was also leaking from the very bottom of the unit. After careful inspection I found that the bottom assembly had cracked almost all around the bottom. I guess I didn't bury it deep enough. Replacing the bottom assembly was easy and solved the problem for under $20
A: Please turn off your water and unloose the square bolt on the brass clevis rod. Lift the handle half way and tighten. Push down handle and turn water on. If it still leaks repeat. You can reach us at 844-251-7446 to discuss
A: Yes normal
A: Yes. Water drains from the pipe after the handle is closed leaving no water in the pipe to freeze making it a frost free hydrant.
