LPS Posttop Acorns

These are on 6.6A series system. Their days are numbered as San Diego is trying to replace series with multiple systems and induction lamps.

Thank you! Very nice photo! My dads building will have all LPS outside by October I hope 2 90w and 3 18w wall packs. LPS is moving in the building as well, They work good for night security. LPS is going to replace lots of LEDs too, love LPS. as you know I am a green in other words I love trees and the environment I hate LED, HPS is crap LPS is the best I think. I run a strong business

On street view I saw these dayburning, and a bag covering the PC on the regulator pole (next pic). The bag had a string so repairmen can remove it without a bucket truck or climbing the pole. This is the corner of Adams & Van Dyke, San Diego, CA.

California 6.6A acorns on the hated list since the horrible double electrocution in LA two years ago. Car vs. 6.6A acorn vs. fire hydrant.

WAIT when a hydrant in your state is hit water comes out Laughing I find that very hard to believe.CA is full of stupid people so maybe you are right, Hydrants in MA RI have brake rods you can take the whole thing out and still no water comes out, Smart thinking. And as it is sad two were killed lets look at the facts, 3000 were killed on 9/11 and I am still the only person who builds towers exclusively for jet impacts.
Now because of two killed we must remove 6.6A [Government staged] Government makes a problem and oh they will quote fix it. I am a far right environmentalist so I want homes and apartments to pay 3x more for power and factories to pay way less. trucks should pay way less they keep the economy going and suvs need about $14 more a gallon LPS-E or SOX-E everywhere

In Southern California, the most popular type of fire hydrant are "Wet Barrel" type hydrants made by the James Jones company of El Monte which have water pressure all the way to the top with the valve located right behind the outlets. The type of hydrant you described is a "Dry Barrel" hydrant where the valve is located below grade and operated by a long shaft from the top with a breakaway coupling at the base of the hydrant. Dry barrel hydrants are more common in colder climates

It's not necessarily 6.6 amp street lighting circuits exposed by a traffic collision that could be hazardous in such situations. Back in March 2014, an accident in La Mirada where a SUV sheared a hydrant and knocked down a nearby power pole resulted in a passing cyclist being shocked.

2000+ volts at ground level in or near intersections not such a great idea anymore ! Along the L.A. freeways the 6.6 circuits were moved all underground using series mercury ballast in vaults. A safer bet realized in the mid 1950's

@ Brian, yes Kali if full of stupid people and the problem is they vote, are what are called "Low Information Voters" and are gullible to those that promise them goodies at the expense of those who are productive.
@ Andrew, thanks for info on fire hydrants, I understand the need for Dry Barrel in cold places like RI, could freeze and burst a Wet Barrel hydrant.

Awesome to see.. sad if its days are numbered
I've liked SOX/LPS since the first time I saw some as a kid.

Here the fire hydrants are dry barrel type
