I like Philip, somehow this water thing reminds me to a Lego firefighter :)
Does snow a lot over there?

Alex, yes, some years, it snows a lot and other years less so. We are way out from Eastern North America, in the Atlantic Ocean exactly where the cold Labrador Current and the warm Gulf Stream mix. That means we get lots of moisture in the air. If it's warm enough, that's fog and rain; colder, it's snow in winter. Some winters I have to shovel twenty or thirty times, and some winters only once or not at all.

I was asking because that red post is normally used to find the spot where is located under the snow but since it snows the water should be frozen... Or is it no so cold not to freeze the inner tubes under the ground?

The snow actually reduces the depth of the frost in the ground -- pipes are more likely to freeze when there is no snow on the ground. And you are right -- that red pipe is a kind of flag for maintenance people to find the hydrants and shovel them out when the snow comes.
