The assembly is attached to a fire hydrant via a fire hose provided by the City of Durham. Discharge hoses are not provided and are the responsibility of the customer.
Rental periods may vary from one day to one year or more. Rental fees and consumption charges are paid monthly. As long as the account remains current you can remain in possession of the fire hydrant meter assembly.
