We understand that you may sometimes require an additional water supply outside of our normal supply arrangements. That’s why we offer a comprehensive standpipe hire service. These freestanding standpipes are fitted with a tap and can be attached to a hydrant to provide a water supply where there isn’t currently one available.
They are also fitted with a double-check valve that stops water going back into the water mains and a meter so that we can measure how much water has been used.
If you have any queries, want to hire a standpipe or just want to know more about our standpipe hire scheme, please contact us by email UUStandpipeHire@uuplc.co.uk or call us on 01925 679498. Our operating hours are Monday to Friday 9am–4pm.
Only standpipes hired from our Standpipes Hire Team or a provider approved by United Utilities are approved for use on our network. Currently the only approved provider is Aquam Water Services. Anyone wishing to hire a standpipe must hold a Calm Network Operation Certificate which is awarded following the completion of an online training programme.
