  • Name a valve for me.

    Hey guys,

    Really Dumb question, but I'm drawing a blank today, and apparently my salesman can't name this part either.

    What is the proper name of the valve that you place on the steamer port of the hydrant, that allows a second engine to attach later and boost pressure to the first engine without interupting the established supply line.

    It has two inlets, and 2 outlets, and normally looks like a cross. I called it a relay manifold, but I know that's not the correct term.

        Hydrant valve.
        I'm not talking about a simple gate valve, but the valve with four connections, and the one-way clappers inside.

        Is it just a "hydrant valve"?

                            Well.......................... .............................. .........................

                            We have a Mobile Pressure Controlling Manifold with multiple discharge Valves that we Hook up to hydrants. All Supply lines are hooked up to this device, NOT directly to the Hydrant. Works great for us. What??..... Huh??..... Proper name for the Mobile Pressure Cont...........?? Oh, We just call it an Engine Company.


                            Seriously, We put an Engine on the Hydrant, EVERY TIME. We do NOT connect hose directly to the Hydrant.

                              How do you spin the Engine onto the hydrant and how many of you does it take? Guess you have a lot of guys nicknamed "Tiny" on the job.
