Evenproducts’ tapstands facilitate the delivery of water –from a water storage tank to communities which are temporarily without water.
They have been designed to withstand the vigorous use that can be expected with emergency water distribution. Standard Evenproducts’ tapstands are supplied with a 2-inch Guillemin-type coupling at the base of the riser, to which a delivery hose can be connected (see Connection Kit).
The main advantages of using an Evenproducts’ tapstand are that they are easy to assemble and a strong, proven construction. Evenproducts’ tapstands are also compact to store; ready to deploy in an emergency.
The tapstand should be set up allowing for sufficient head of water from the supply tank to provide enough water pressure to deliver the water through the taps.
If the tapstand is located adjacent to the water supply tank then 1.5 metres should be sufficient. Usually, it is best to site the tapstand on lower ground or raise the water supply tank up if possible.

Good Quality Design and Manufacture
Fabricated in sturdy galvanised steel, the top manifold is welded, the riser, legs, extension tubes and taps are assembled on site by screwed joints into the top manifold.
Components are hot dipped galvanised internally and externally to BS EN ISO 1461:2009. All threading is carried out after the galvanising process using food grade cutting oil – To be double checked.
Each tapstand is supplied with Evenflow Water Saver Valves, which are self-closing taps design specifically for use at low water pressures. Self-closing taps which rely upon the water pressure to keep them closed can drip at low pressures wasting water and causing a muddy slip hazard in the tapstand area.
