Standpipe hire

New standpipe for hire

In the past we have hired temporary standpipes out for use by 3rd parties, but from 1 April 2018, Aquam Water Services (Aquam)have been appointed as our approved supplier and will take over management of the hire process across the Anglian Water region. 

The legal bit

Unauthorised access to our hydrants and washout and the use of standpipes not supplied by Aquam, could:

  • create a potential risk to water quality and damage our infrastructure. 
  • can  interfere with our operations or that of fire service activities.
  • contravene the Water Industry Act. 
It is a criminal offence to:

  • use a standpipe which is not hired from us or our approved supplier.   
  • take water without permission from a non approved hydrant.
and to knowingly do so would lead to prosecution.

Why you should use Aquam?

Aquam Water Services have been providing standpipe management services for over 15 years with a reputation for excellent customer service. They will be providing a complete end to end process by:

  • Supplying Anglian Water specific standpipes. Ordered online, on the phone or in person and can be delivered directly to you
  • Providing industry leading training approved by the DWI
  • Manage the billing of all hire agreements
  • Manage any illegal usage

Aquam will process all applications and, to meet legal requirements, hire out metered standpipes for you to take water from approved hydrants on Anglian Water’s water supply network.

Once an application has been received and processed, you will be able to choose whether to have the standpipe delivered to your door within 24 hours or collect it from Aquam’s distribution point in Peterborough.
