When designing and installing infrastructure, consider the height at which it is placed. What is convenient for easy monitoring (observing the gauges on these water pipes) also presents the (entertaining) challenge of interacting with it in unexpected ways. While the meter-checkers were anticipated as users, these children were not.

Design either to encourage or discourage unexpected use(rs), but neglect design at your own risk.
