Murdock non-freeze and mild climate hydrants are perfect for year-round sources of water on commercial and light commercial buildings of all types.
The concealed wall hydrant boxes are made of bronze and 16 gauge, type 304 stainless steel. The boxes are designed to fit flush with the wall to eliminate catch points and to grant an architectural appeal. The locking hinged cover on the box opens 180° to permit easy access by maintenance personnel without catching the door with the hose.

Murdock has the most complete selection of commercial boxed ground hydrants on the market today. These in-ground, outdoor hydrants can be used in parks, recreational areas, life-style centers, shopping malls, and zoos; on walking trails, parking decks and streets, and with commercial and residential installations. Murdock flush type box hydrants are ideal for a year-round water source. They can be set in pavement, paver stones, sod or concrete. The top of the unit is installed flush with surrounding surface and all working parts are located below grade, perfectly concealed and out of the way until needed.
Our line of non-freeze boxed ground hydrants have hinged covers for positive protection against freezing and traffic. When the lid is lifted and the hose is connected, the water supply is turned on with a key. When the hydrant is shut-off, water is drained from the casing through a drainage hole in the valve housing. A locking cover is available on most models to prevent vandalism and unauthorized use.
The heavy duty cover and box are engineered for years of use and wear.
Murdock post and yard hydrants are the foundation of the brand. Since 1853, Murdock has manufactured the “Genuine” brand of hydrants. In 1869, Murdock introduced the “Genuine” Street Washers known today as flush box hydrants or “street washers.” To this day, Murdock hydrants are still made to the same exacting standards in quality of materials and workmanship.
The Murdock line of hydrants is built for long-life and freedom of repairs to their inner works.
