there are always exceptions. not far from me, there's a traditional
hydrant of the type normally used with pressurized systems, but
it's sourced from a pond. the reason is that the pond is elevated, some
distance from the road, and they need to keep the barrel empty
when it's not in use for the usual reasons.
