How the Jones Tell-Tale Break-Off Check Valve Works:

When the hydrant is hit, the safety flange breaks, releasing hydrant from check valve.Hydrant and adapter plate are released from lower barrel, and check valve begins to close.Valve shuts and, working with water pressure, stays closed. “Through-hole” in operating rod minimizes water hammer while providing a visual notification of damage.
