Standpipes are portable devices which can be used to obtain a temporary water supply from defined hydrant positions within our water supply network.




You can hire standpipes via our approved supplier:

Water Services Ltd
0844 756 4000

All of our approved standpipes are fitted with an anti-pollution device to prevent back-flow and reduce the risk of contamination entering the public water supply.

Please note:

Unauthorised access to our hydrants and the use of standpipes sourced from outside of our approved supplier can create a potential risk to water quality, which could result in public health issues and could damage our infrastructure. It can also interfere with our operations or fire service activities. 

It’s a criminal act to use a standpipe which is not hired from us and take water without permission from a non approved hydrant, which could lead to prosecution.
