Re: no water from frost proof hydrant
There is a self drainer on the bottom of the hydrant tube. If the water is squirting out under pressure when the handle is lifted you may have a blocked tube. The top unscrews from the tube and the stem can be removed. Be sure the water is turned off. Once the stem is removed turn the water on to flush out the tube. If you only get a small amount of water out of the drain, you may have a crushed water line or a leak in the line. If you have water squirting out of the side of the tube, then the hydrant had frozen and split the tube and you will need to replace the hydrant.
