Hydra Storz Quick Connect Hydrant System
When water flows the patented Hi-Flow butterfly vanes automatically swing open. This action reduces friction loss and the effects of water hammer while a stiffener bar smoothes water flow.

In the closed position Hydra-Storz is more secure than conventional caps. the rugged stainless steel butterfly vanes remain closed when there is no water flow to eliminate tampering, water theft and below-ground water hammer.
