The ecogator® Communal Water Standpipe is ultimately designed to save water, but also to improve the quality of life of the community where it is installed.
ecogator® recently launched the ecogator® Communal Standpipe, designed to ultimately save water, but also to improve the quality of life of the community where it is installed. The ecogator® Standpipe serves as a protective housing for water pipes and/or water dispensing meters (when included). It could be installed as a replacement for existing standpipes or new ones.
The standpipe is fitted with push-taps to ensure that taps close automatically when finished dispensing water. The ecogator® Standpipe also ensures a more hygienic environment for the community. Instead of mud puddles forming around each tap, the ecogator® re-directs the spilled water away from the tap. It is either re-directed through a soak-away or via a pipe inserted at the bottom of the base, connected to the sewerage system.
The ecogator® standpipe includes a moulded-in bench for users to sit down, while waiting for their containers to fill. It has easy access for water containers and also has a three-level tier to make it easier for the community to lift it to their shoulders. Available in a variety of colours.
The ecogator® Communal Standpipe is ideal for use in informal settlements, hiking trails, public open spaces and parks.
