Standpipe Hire

Water Services evolved as a result of 13 years’ experience of hiring standpipes throughout the country working with many of the U.K’s largest Water Authorities as a UVDB accredited supplier.

We are currently privileged to be working  with authorities including Yorkshire Water, United Utilities and Thames Water amongst others. Recent contract awards include Southern Water and most recently Sutton and East Surrey Water.

We realise many customers find it difficult to locate which water authority to use and the confusion surrounding the correct and lawful use of water Standpipes and the subsequent uncontrolled unregulated water extraction by unauthorised users.

Customers can often find the process of hiring a standpipe somewhat time consuming and frustrating as a result of being unfamiliar with the various Water Authorities jurisdictions, operating procedures and processes.

That is where Water Services can help. We provide a simple service of locating, organising and delivering the correct legally compliant standpipe.

Wherever you are working and require a standpipe please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance, as well as being formally contracted to a number of Water Authorities we also act as supply agents for many more and will be pleased to help.


When using a standpipe please be aware of the potential need to comply with the revised Safety at Street Works and Road Works code of practice which came into force on 1st October 2014.
