SmartStandpipe technology

Upgrade your temporary standpipes to become smart monitoring devices. This cutting-edge technology gives you accurate real-time data to measure water extractions and pipeline flow data to support you managing your network. Our SmartStandpipes come with this technology already integrated, while our SmartPipes are designed to retrofit your existing standpipes.

Managing standpipe water usage is much easier with smart technology, our systems can calculate the precise volume of water extracted from the network and assign it to an authorised user. The technology also provides GPS location data and records the time the water was taken, making it easy to automate bills.

Monitor your network using smart hydrant technology

Our technologies monitor, process and record multiple channels of data from a variety of sensors and transmit it wirelessly to the cloud-based ADARI portal for access by operators. ADARI converts the data into actionable intelligence that can be used to support better decision-making and pre-emptive maintenance to avoid critical events.

Benefits of smart hydrant water metering

  • Helps manage pipeline flow and water balance
  • Reduces water discolouration incidents
  • Helps combat leakages and bursts
  • Alerts on unauthorised extraction
  • Accounts for NRW reducing leakage figures
  • Alerts on any illegal tampering


The Orbis SmartStandpipe has a built-in multi-sensor with capacity to detect an array of pipe and flow conditions. Data is uploaded to the ADARI portal where scheduled reports and real-time alerts can be accessed by operators.


The SmartPipe is a clamp-on multi-sensor device that can smart-enable standpipes. It carries all the intelligence of the SmartStandpipe and can convert any standpipe into a smart standpipe.
