Repairing 3 leaky frost free Clayton Mark water hydrants?


No, you don't need to know how deep they are.
Usually the rubber tip called a plunger is all that needs to be replaced.
You'll need to know your model number or easier is to just bring the old one with you to the store.
On this page is an excellent diagram of a Clayton Hydrant.

How to I keep a freeze-proof hydrant from popping open?


The bottom of the rod has a rubber stopper that fails and can cause this. You must turn off water and remove the upper part of faucet to pull out rod.

Rod stuck hydrant


Loosen the packing nut at the bottom of that rod that goes into the pipe/handle. Go to an autoparts store and buy a slide hammer. Unhook the handle from the rod and connect the slide hammer using any bolts etc that you have. Use the slide hammer straight up to free the rod. Tighten the packing nut back down to stop leaks, or DIG the whole thing up.

What is the difference between the Simmons Yard Hydrant 850 repair kit and the 850SB repair Kit? The pictures of the parts look the the same. The price is a few dollars different. My hydrant was new...


The 850SB is a lead-free hydrant and the 850SB repair kit maintains that lead-free build.

The two repair kits are identical beyond that lead-free status. If you have the 850 hydrant, the 850 repair kit will be fine. Since the rest of the hydrant may contain lead, there is no advantage to using the lead-free parts. (If you live in California, you may need to get the 850SB kit. The rules for products with lead in California are a bit different than those in other places. So the company only sells the lead-free model there.)

I hope this helps.

My frost free yard hydrant has stopped working. It's not leaking, it just doesn't work


Internally there is a long stem that operates a lever valve which is under ground. Which opens & closes as you pull open the handle, and push to close the handle.
The connection at that Rodney some sort, either at the valve or the handle has broke.
it might be able to be located? For repair, if not, it might be time to spend another $50 - $125 or so for another one. There are so many varieties and qualities. I personally would try for the repair, as the repair kits are FAR less expensive. You just have to dig it up and remove it. Then once repaired, reinstall. Just remember: Turn the Main Off.

here is an example of what a repair kit looks like...

Waterwell hydrant that leaks when it's shut off


Typically these hydrants have sprung live seat meaning the seat (or seal) of the hydrant is spring loaded. With time the seal will harden and fail. With your pump system down you'll need to remove the internals of the hydrant and replace those worn components. Best approach is to find make and model of hydrant and replace all lower seal parts; if one has failed the other are near to fail or have weakened.
I hope this may have helped,

Freezeless yard hydrant constantly drains is there any adjustment


Bear with me. The hole is not a weep hole, but a drain. When you shut the valve off, the water in the pipe should drain out this hole so the pipe doesn't freeze. When you lift the handle the rod in the center of the pipe raises a hard rubber bulb that lets the water flow and covers the drain hole so it doesn't run water all the time. To service the valve shut the water off, take the handle pivot bolt out. Loosen the packing nut in the center over the pipe, screw it out, lift the guts, - handle, rod and nut, out of the pipe, now you can see the rubber bulb. Screw it off and go to a good plumbing shop or plumbing supply. Replace the bulb and put it back together. The nut in the center tightens a packing to keep water from leaking around the rod. Too tight and it is too stiff. Too loose and it will leak. Also, where the center rod meets the handle there is an adjustment that allows you to lengthen the rod a little so the bulb is pushed down a little more. Maybe this is all you need. Anyway, you just got the whole load of hay. You can also screw the top part off the pipe and you don't have to disassemble the head. Put gravel around the bottom so when the pipe drains the water can get out. Don't leave a hose connected when it needs to drain.
