Model 129 Fire Hydrant

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

For over 60 years the M&H 129 Hydrant has been produced to protect property and lives.

Hydrants produced in the 1930's are still able to be retrofitted with production parts built today.


M& H Valve & Fitting Co. was founded in New York City as McNab & Harlin Mfg. Co. M&H, as it would become known, had both a brass and a iron foundry on the premises of their factories in Paterson, NJ, as seen in this engraving from the 1854 McNab & Harlin catalog. They produced brass cocks, valves, and "other plumber's materials" and in the 1850s the company sold flip lid style fire hydrants, manufactured by Metropolitan Brass & Iron, from their warehouses in New York City. They also sold a no-name post hydrant similar to the National. In the 1920s M&H Valve relocated to Anniston, Alabama. It was not much longer before M&H Valve began manufacturing their own line of fire hydrants.
The company has gone through change of ownerships including Walworth Valve, Dresser Industries, and now McWane International Inc.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
