What is a standpipe?

A standpipe is a portable device used to draw water directly from a fire hydrant on watermains.

Throughout Auckland we have about 47,000 fire hydrants, which are essential for firefighting. Hydrants are for firefighting purposes only – any other use is discretionary and limited by us. Apply to hire a standpipe
