Definition - What does Standpipe mean?

A standpipe is a vertical pipe extending from a water supply. Standpipes are used on direct flow or high-pressure irrigation systems to attach a high-pressure hose to a pump, and sometimes used in hydroponic systems.

MaximumYield explains Standpipe

A standpipe is most often used for irrigation for a field operation where water is moved through a high-pressure hose to various hose subsections and ultimately to the sprinkler system.

A standpipe is sometimes used for low-pressure applications such as hydroponic gardening, where they control the water level and provide for drainage.
