    “The batteries are very sufficient for the duration of use – approximately 7 to 8 hours per day while exercising approximately 30 valves per day.”

  2. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “We’ve even used it for tapping.”

  3. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “No generator noise or extension or hydraulic cords to deal with.”

  4. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “It’s half the weight of our old tool and can be used with one operator.”

  5. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “Our workforce is getting older and this helps out quite a bit.”

  6. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “No one calls in sick on flushing days anymore.”

  7. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “Having the ability to control the speed of operation is an extremely useful feature.”

  8. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “I was skeptical at first but went ahead and purchased the Hydrant Buddy because it did look like a quality piece of equipment, it was produced locally and came with a good guarantee. Long story short, it went over so well with the crew that this year we purchased our second unit so both “flushers” now have one.”

  9. Hydrant Buddy Customer

    “Thank you for the opportunity to use your tool and we highly recommend its use to anyone dealing with valve exercising and preventative maintenance.”
