Where can I use a standpipe I have hired?
Our standpipes can be used only within our supply area.
When you hire a 20mm standpipe, we’ll ask you which street you would like to use it in.
Your license will be valid for that location.
Larger, 40mm standpipes can only be used at specific points on our water mains and can affect the water supply and it’s distribution in some places.
When you return the 40mm standpipe form, we’ll make and assessment of the network. If the application is accepted, we’ll specify one or more access points on our water mains.
If we are unable to accept the application, we can sometimes offer an alternative location, or the option of using the 20mm standpipe.
