Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe Co. - Provo, UT
Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe Co. still exists today, but no longer manufactures fire hydrants. To obtain information or parts for these hydrants, see our Hydrant Parts page.

If you have information about the company or its fire hydrants, please Contact Us.

Two models have been discovered and are documented below.


  M1 model
This first model has a strong resemblance to Iowa Valve hydrants with the multi-sided bonnet and the toggle action main valve; which is the reason for the off-center operating nut.
  • The photos below show what appear to be two different valve opening sizes hydrants. What we are calling a ~4" V.O. has 4 bonnet bolts and a ~5" V.O. has 8 bonnet bolts.
  • Cast onto the barrel is the wording "PACIFIC STATES C.I.P. Co. PROVO UTAH 19XX" (year of mfr.).


  • Shown first is the older 1 piece barrel version.
