English translation:maintaining (the pipes) in a filled state when stopped
Explanation:
erhalten = to maintain
gefüllt = in a filled state (because just "filled" or "full" doesn't work in context)
Use the progressive form ("maintaining") in subordinate clauses in patents.
Note that as written, the subject of "erhält" is "dessen Höhe." This may not actually be the intended meaning.

agree  Edith Kelly: maintaining the pipes filled when // yes I cannot see a problem but L-man seems to think that I am not a native speaker. We do not know who he is .... might be Moravian but Darin your proposal is perfect I just tried to shorten it a bit
19 mins
  -> Do you think "maintaining ___ed" works, then? / Thanks for the explanation. In patents we often have to use very long phrases so I don't worry about it.

agree  Lancashireman: with the original native speaker version
4 hrs
  -> Cheers! But please don't make assumptions about native speaker status....

agree  Klaus Beyer
9 hrs
  -> Danke!

agree  Ramey Rieger
10 hrs
  -> Thanks!

agree  Daniel Arnold: I would say keep them filled when there is no flow
1 day 5 hrs
  -> Thanks! In patents we should not make assumptions, so I would not translate "Stillstand" as "no flow." It could refer to any number of other types of stoppage.
