Thanks, Pixter. I knew about hidrante, but thought it sounded too much like English and didn't find enough Internet hits to make me think it was popular.

If you don't mind saying, where have you heard this used?

I'm pretty sure I've seen hidrante in the Spanish subtitles of American movies, but that's not really an indication that a native Spanish speaker would use it.
