Remove The Hydrant
Removing a yard hydrant head from stand pipe
Aaron Stickley
Using two pipe wrenches remove the hydrant from the stand pipe. One pipe wrench should hold the stand pipe for support and the other is used to unscrew the hydrant.

If unscrewing the hydrant proves too difficult try to lubricate the threads. Also, using bigger pipe wrenches or cheaters to increase you leverage and make unscrewing it easier.

Cheaters: a piece of pipe on the end of each pipe wrench to increase the length of the wrench and provide more leverage.
