Josh, I asked my neighbor the same question about filling our pool. He is on the fire dept. He said that they no longer do that. He said they used to use a line jumper, but that all now is illegal. (You wouldn't be able to obtain a hose for the hydrant, or the wrench to turn it on.) We have found that filling ours with a garden hose @ $69.00 is cheaper than having it hauled in at a cost of roughly $200.00+, and that is for 17,000 gallons of water. I hope this has helped ot answer your question. You can check locally with your fire dept. It may be different where you are.

A: Additionally, I think the fine when or if you were caught would far out weigh the cost savings of illegally stealing water.

The energy behind a fire hydrant that is not flowing water is known as "static pressure". This is the water pressure that is normally available from the water main when the hydrant is closed.

A hydrant is an attachment valve from a water main used by the fire department. One of the key features commonly found is an poppet shutoff that usually works to shut off the water if a car hits the hydrant.
