1. A pressure monitoring system for a wet barrel hydrant comprising:
an outer housing defining a sidewall shell and a cap coupled to the sidewall shell;
a sensor housing defining a connector, a housing cavity, and an opening formed through the sensor housing and allowing access to the housing cavity, the connector configured to couple the pressure monitoring system to the wet barrel hydrant, wherein the housing cavity is in communication with an environment external to the pressure monitoring system through the opening; and
a base assembly coupled to the sidewall shell and defining a central support and a cylindrical wall, the cylindrical wall extending from the central support towards the cap, the sensor housing coupled to the central support opposite the cylindrical wall.
