There may be times when you require a source of water outside your usual plumbing network. In situation like these a standpipe can be used to connect to a hydrant. However a fire hydrant should only be used in the event of a fire. If you require a standpipe for everyday use such as drain cleaning, construction or landscape gardening you must only connect a standpipe to a wash out hydrant (WH) not a Fire Hydrant (FH).
We supply standpipes either with single or double head outlets. Outlets are 2 1/2" female instantaneous with single twist release (BS 336). The double-head type is supplied with one blank plug as standard. Contractors' standpipes are supplied with a brass double check valve as standard.
