fitting standpipe


I havejust had a water supply fitted to the exterior of my cottage for renovation.It takes the form of a small manhole in which is a pipe with a plastic on/off valve , at the end of which is a threaded pipe which obviously is meant to connect to the interior water feed to the house.
Can anyone tell me what the size of this tread is and how i obtain a standpipe for the manhole so that i can get a water feed, or even something that i can screw on the feed pipe to attatch a hose.

We need a picture or a better description of the pipe---

You could just buy a 3/4" and 1" fitting and climb in and try them on for size--

What would have been far better to have had installed would have been one of these on the supply side of the line.

Those plastic ball valves always end up sticking. I stoped using them long ago and only use brass valves. More expencive but not going to break off the PVC when trying to shut it off.

fitting standpipe


The 'man hole' is only about 18inches long by 12 inches wide. . In it , at about a foot down ( im pre decibel ) is a copper pipe about 3/4 inch diameter. And the end of the pipe, which strangely looks wider at the end, is a threaded bit, which looks about an inch and a quarter across to my untrained eye. The french must screw on something to the threaded end to serve as a standpipe. This is a new job carried just out by the Marie dept whilst i was not there . There are also a couple of other small manholes , also just fitted. One must be for the water meter, I have not opened them yet, I just want to find some way to fit a stand pipe first.
