Case studies

Hose fittings

Standpipes

Eastons fulfill a variety of bulk water delivery jobs. Previous water haulage jobs include draining and refilling a country park’s pool, topping up reservoirs at a commercial nurseries, and delivering seawater to a national research laboratory.

See our case studies to find out whether your job is similar to one we’ve done before.

Standpipe operation

A standpipe is a detachable metered pipe fitting that connects to a water main and allows trained personnel to safely and lawfully withdraw water from the mains.

Hiring a licensed standpipe can often make water haulage jobs more efficient. Our CALM network trained drivers can safely operate 40mm standpipes supplied by Aquam Services for Anglian Water’s network. Contact us to find out more.

Hoses for all occasions

Our stock of food grade reinforced and lay-flat hose can fulfill a variety of access needs. The tanker’s pipework is capable of interfacing with a variety of pipe fittings, including instantaneous couplings, 2.5″ RJT and 2″ camlock quick-connect. Hydraulic and standalone pumping systems are available.

Which hose fittings do Eastons carry?

Eastons work in the food industry, so our tankers are all fitted with 3″ RJT male couplings on the outlets. Pipework is either 2″ or 2 1/2″ diameter. We also carry adapters for instantaneous and camlock quick connect couplings. We can supply other thread adapters upon request.
