Okay, I got the difference between the pillar hydrants. What about
dry-hydrants where you need to pump water out of a river/pond. There is
not a shutoff in the center of the bonnet.

Formerly this [1] would have been:

> fire_hydrant:type=pond
> fire_hydrant:pressure=suction

WIth the new proposal this would be then:

> fire_hydrant:type=pipe
> fire_hydrant:pressure=suction
Is this right? In German one would translate pipe as "Ansaugrohr".
