    Not cheap by time you have paid for the standpipe hire (just short of £50 a week ...
    And £1.30 a cubic metre for water plus £300 deposit on standpipe in Yorkshire waters area)

    Standpipe

    Think i have seen standpipes for sale on the bay. My father worked for the water authorities so just possible there is one here some were but most Hydrants that are easy to find are were you would be seen so is that really what you want ?. Steam traction engines going to a rally carry them often but i am not sure of the rights and wrongs of it.

    As far as the steam guys are concerned

    I understand that NET (national traction engine trust)
    Have worked long and hard to get a scheme in place to allow extraction under calm network training.... Avoiding conflict and fear of prosecution for illegal extraction.

    Maybe something for those wanting free water to get together and, campaign for?

    Why should campers get free water when everyone else has to pay for it ?

    Properly on a water meter. He seems full of bright ideas.

    It's just the way 'some' folks roll.....

    I'm happy with my two 4 litre bottles of spring water bought from local super market and topped up when we stop at a camp site or return home....
    Till the handles drop off...
    By which time it's usually time to replace the bottles with new ones anyway.
