Dry hydrants in our rural areas are vitally important to the protection of structures located away from traditional water hydrants. Residents with ponds on their property may choose at any time to place a dry hydrant in their pond for use by their fire department. Occasionally, there are grants available for installation, and most insurance companies may also give the homeowner a price break on their premium.
