Flood Warning!

Need a Fast Response to Flooding!

If you’re in a high-risk flood area, then Tardis Environmental can help weather you’re a domestic or construction customer.

The met office has issued out warnings and alerts for known areas that are at risk of flooding. So what can we do to help prevent or even minimize damage caused by flooding?

We have a large fleet of vacuum tankers that can take large amounts of wet wastewater to help alleviate possible damage caused be flooding. Some of our tankers can also have a high vol jet vac that can clean your drains from leafs and debris that may slow the rate the floodwater gets drained.

Tardis Environmental also has industrial water pumps that can move the wastewater from a flooded area to a drain or river that is not flooded.

The WX10 and WH20 water pumps are useful for small jobs like filling small water tanks and increasing water pressure.

The WB20 and WB30 are great for moving large amounts of water with small debris within the water.

Now the WT20 is probably the best bet to move waste water as it can handle large amounts of water and large sized debris up to 24mm.

No it is not illegal to install a product that is not WRAS, but you may need to have proof or prove the compliance in other ways. No WRAS approved products are mainly used in areas where human health could not be compromised. We can provided WRAS approved piping and fitting along with our highly trained Tardis plumber.

Septic Tank Empty

All you need to know about septic tank emptying

Septic tanks are mainly found in areas where a mains sewage line is not available and the sewage and waste water needs to be collected in a septic tank before being released in ground water.

Domestic Septic Tank

You are probably thinking why I would need a septic tank emptying service if the water gets released back in to the ground water level. The Septic tank has 3 layers of waste water, the bottom layer of water is called the sludge layer and this will be eaten by helpful bacteria. This is solid waste that drops to the bottom of the septic tank. So try not to use too much bleach or antibacterial products. Also if you do not empty the sludge from the bottom of the septic tank the sludge layer will build up as the bacteria will not be able to handle the increased sludge.

The second layer or the middle layer of waste water inside a septic tank is called waste water. This layer is the layer that will exit through a T-shaped outlet pipe to a drain field or soakaway field, which will then soak through the soil back to the ground water flow for further treatment.

The first layer otherwise known as the scum layer is a build-up of oil and grease and items that don’t decompose. This layer sits on top of the waste water layer and is the most common problem cause for blocking up your septic tank.

So having a scheduled septic tank empty not only saves you money but will give you peace of mind. Plus have a septic tank empty service will help prolong the life of your sewage system.

If you need more advice or information on septic tank emptying then give our Hire desk team a call today on 0800 731 0589.

The Right Portable Toilet for You

What Portable Toilet do you need?

With so many different portable toilets to choice from, it can be difficult hiring out the right portable toilet you will need.

So here are some short explanations of the different types of toilets.

If your work on a construction site an event toilet would not suit your needs. You will need a cold wash or hot wash portable toilet. These toilets have sinks that are able to wash face and forearms which is perfect for construction sites.

Portable Toilet Hire

You have an event or festival and you want some portable toilet that will be able to handle the constant use from hundreds of festival goers. You will need an event portable toilet as these have 2 ply ultra-strong walls; vandal proof door springs and has a double walled roof which is able to withstand heavy weight.

Event Toilet

When hosting an event or festival it is a good idea to hire out some portable urinals as these would help cut waiting time. This will allow your customers to have more time enjoying the festival or event.

Portable Urinal

If you’re lucky enough and have access to a mains sewage line you will be able to use a mains portable toilet. These toilets can be connected to the main sewage line and with toilet inside that resembles the one you would find in your own home.

Did you know that Tardis Environmental also have portable showers that can be hired? These are great for both construction sites and festivals. As long as you have water supply and electricity supply.

Shower

For more information on our portable toilet service and what we can provide for you call Tardis on 0800 731 0589.

 

Why do we need a Septic tank empty?

Septic Tank Info

Septic Tank Emptying

The most important thing in a septic tanks life is having a regular septic tank emptying service. Why is this so important for a septic tank? Having your tank emptied at least once a year will mean your tank should not overflow under normal use. If you find that you are having your septic tank emptied on a more frequent basis then there could be a problem.

Problems that could occur with a septic tank!

There are so many things that could go wrong if you don’t have a scheduled empty. So what could cause your septic tank to overflow? First of check the size of the septic tank, if you have a 3 man tank and you have 5 people living at your address then you are over using the tank. If you have checked the size and found that you have the right size tank then it’s time to call Tardis who will empty your septic tank and if requested give a wash down.

How can you prolong the life of your tank?

There are a number of ways in which to help prolong the life of your sewage tank. First of don’t pour antibacterial chemicals down your kitchen sink as the antibacterial liquid could kill all the friendly bacteria that sits at the bottom of your tank that digests all the sludge, killing this bacteria will mean a build-up in sludge which could clog your drain pipes and could lead to having them need a high pressure jetting service to remove the blockage.  Other things to look out for tree roots breaking in through the side of the tank, if dealt with early the tank will more likely be fixed instead of having a completely new one installed.

So remember always have your septic tank emptied on a regular basis and don’t put too much antibacterial down your kitchen.
