Aquor’s product line does not have a spigot and valve handle exposed on the outside of the house. Instead, the traditional fixture is replaced with Aquor’s Hydrant, a valve system embedded inside the wall and protected from freezing. The inner valve opens by locking a handle into the Hydrant via an exterior flush-mounted plate which has a spring-loaded hose connector with a 1/3-turn bayonet-style thread. The first handle product introducing Aquor’s new design language is the Comfort Grip Hose Connector which connects standard 3/4” garden hoses to the Aquor Hydrant.


"Provides added benefit (not seeing the spigot and helping with it not freezing) and a nice, simple design."
