In Kingston our Municipal and Private Dry Hydrants are installed to NFPA 1142 and maintained to NFPA 25.  We have some dry hydrants at facilities where there is underground stored water tanks for firefighting (for example hwy 401 rest stops); we require them to be serviced annually like a fire hydrant.  This service is now be offered by Lakeshore Fire Hydrants.  It is important to ensure that the dry hydrant ports match your departments standard drafting equipment for example a 4″ stortz connection.  Hope this helps.
