This year we have been asked again to supply Glastonbury Festival 23 waste tanks
Because we fabricate our own tanks from 4mm steel and have our own fabricator. This will enable us to fabricate any size or any shape waste tank you will need for your site or festival.
Why go steel over plastic for your waste tank
The benefits of a steel waste tank is that a steel tank is highly durable, can be moved around site without causing much damage to the tank, will still operate in cold or hot weather without cracking and most importantly you can stack your welfare or cabin unit on top of the tank, which will create space at your festival or construction site.
Have a waste tank to suit your site needs
As we fabricate our own tanks, we can fabricate a tank to suit your needs. We came create any shape and size tank with lots of additional features than your standard waste tank.

The Tardis vans will help protect the driver by correctly directing the traffic around the work area. They will also assist the general public as well by keeping them safe and away from the work area and keeping your business open and keeping the disruption to your customers to a minimal.
2 New Tardis Land Rovers Join Our Fleet

Our second Land Rover will be for our Health and safety officer, who will be able to visit sites and check to make sure the area is safe and secure and that the driver has good access to where the job. Our health and safety officer not only checks sites to make sure that our drivers are safe but the general public are safe as well and that our drivers are keeping within H&S guidelines and rules.

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.
If you need any help in a bad situation then give our team a call today and see how we can help you. Freephone 0800 731 0589.
Did you know that Tardis Environmental have WRAS approved products?
So what does WRAS approved mean
WRAS means The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme and for a product to be WRAS approved it demonstrates that the item complies with the high standards that the water regulations promulgated back in 1999 for the United Kingdom. So you now know that our WRAS approved water bowsers and water tanks come at a high standard.
What does WRAS cover?
WRAS covers all plumbing systems, water fittings, water bowsers, water tanks and any equipment that is going to supply water from the public water supply.
Is it a illegal requirement to have WRAS products?
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.
How can you tell if its WRAS Approved?
On all WRAS approved there should be a WRAS approval number this is a way of proving that the product is WRAS approved. But even if for say the water bowser is WRAS approved if it was installed or operated incorrectly then this might breach the water regulations 1999. Don’t worry we have a Tardis Plumber who knows all about WRAS installation and operation.

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.
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 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.
Need more information on septic tank emptying call our highly trained hire staff today for more information. Call 0800 731 0589

So what will the new tractor unit be doing?
The main services the tractor unit will be performing will be delivering our 4,000 gallon and our 6,000 gallons bulk water tanks. Our H2O bulk water tanks can be used for anything. Our bulk water tanks have been used for hydro demolition, where a mains water supply was not available our bulk water tanks have even been used as an emergency bulk water supply at the airport as they were upgrading the water facilities and had to turn off the water while they upgrade.
Not only will our new tractor unit be hauling bulk water around the country but it will sometimes be used to perform a septic tank emptying service. The 44ton tractor unit can haul our massive 6,000 gallon wet waste tank, this means we will be able to empty a commercial septic tank as most septic tanks mainly domestic septic tank can only hold 1,000 gallons.
