Standpipe hire charges 2023/24
The standpipe hired will be 25mm diameter, with a water meter and a back flow prevention device fitted, and it should only be used on a designated “hydrant” connection point.
It should never be attached to a fire hydrant as this constitutes an offence.
Applications for standpipes of greater diameter than 25mm will be considered only under certain circumstances.
Any standpipe which is not obtained through our scheme should NOT be connected to our water network.
Any illegal and/or incorrect users of a standpipe on our network will be prosecuted in order to protect water supplies.
