Cost of a Fire Hydrant

5 Replies

Has anyone here gotten a fire hydrant installed?  Wanted to get some rough estimates. 

How much does it cost to install a fire hydrant that is at least 1,000 gpm fire flow?

In my area around $5k-$6k. Call the local water company they will tell you. 

never heard of an actual request.  I thought only city or fd plan on where they are located. 

why do you ask? 

$5000 +/- for replacing an existing one. Make sure the installer is NFPA. Check with the FD too...

 If your in development its very common for the city to ask for them on a new street or in front of a new project. I install 2-3 a year.
