Water for Irrigation

There are many uses of water that we may not consider as often as others. Today’s blog topic is based on water for irrigation. Tardis Environmental offer bulk water that is an ideal irrigation water supply.

With the British summer just around the corner, the weather hopefully warming up and a possible dry season upon us, water will be needed for agriculture, farming and landscaping sectors alike.

Irrigation in particular, is referred to as the artificial application of water to the land or soil. The water solutions we offer allow us to provide water for irrigation services to your site.

With our expanding fleet of tanks and tankers, it makes delivery of bulk water for irrigation a simple task. If you already have a water tank on site, we can fill this for you. Our new 16,000 litre clean water tanker is ideal for anywhere a supply of bulk water is needed including wash downs, soakaway tests and event water. The new tanker is also rear wheel drive making it easier to manoeuvre in more difficult locations.

Bulk Water Delivery

You can also hire (short term and long term hire both available) a water bowser or water tank from our range of water storage options if you do not already have the facility to hold the water you need. If you were to go for the hire option, we offer a weekly water delivery service to ensure your tank doesn’t run dry.

Thirsty work

The hot weather will leave your workers feeling thirsty. In this instance, Tardis can also supply potable drinking water. Again, there are a number of drinking water services to choose from. Bottled drinking water or a water cooler may be the best option here however.

Finally, we offer an emergency water supply service – our emergency phone lines are open 24/7 so you can always count on us.

Summers calling – Tardis Hire at the ready!

With summer upon us, this means a busy time of year here at Tardis Hire, with the festivals and events season now well underway.   

Last week you may have read our article on Tardis Hire going to Glastonbury, we recently delivered 45 waste tanks to the site ready for the festival. Whether a small local event or larger festivals across the UK, we’re more than happy to help with events of all sizes.

From portable toilets to bulk bottled water, we’ve got it covered!

There’s more to consider about portable toilets than you might think, and almost a necessity at any outdoor event. It is essential to pick the right toilet for the job. If you are unsure of the right number of portable toilets required at the event, we can work it out in relation to the number of people at who will need facilities at your event. We will even take into account the alcohol that will no doubt be consumed!

Clean Portable Toilets

Portable Toilets

Want to cut the queues at the loos? Portable urinals are also available for the male festivalgoers out there with 4 and 6 bay urinal units, an ideal space and time saving fix at larger events.

For more information on the range of portable toilets we offer, visit our website.

Keeping your customers hydrated is also important, especially in the sun (although unlikely in Britain one might add). Another facility needed for events and festivals is therefore fresh drinking water. So if you have a stall at a festival selling bottled drinking water, we sell the wet stuff by the pallet! No matter the size of your gathering, we have the H2O needed to keep everyone happy and hydrated throughout.

If bulk bottled drinking water doesn’t take your fancy, you might be interested in our new drinking water fill station – also featured in another article a few weeks back.

Water Fill Station

Drinking Water Fill Station

This innovative little invention connects to a water supply in minutes, such as a drinking water bowser or tank that we can also supply. This will allow up to 4 people to fill up bottles or buckets at a time, leaving more time for the more fun stuff.

Any questions or for help planning your event, our friendly booking staff on the hire desk are here for your guidance! Call 0800 731 0589.

H2O On Site goes boldly…

We’ve a lovely new website to promote the bulk and quality assured drinking water side of our operation. www.tardish20.co.uk

H2O on site wave

The site is broken down into three main sections:

Water Supplies           Emergency water supplies           Water quality assurance

In the bulk water supplies section, there’s an overview of our growing tanker fleet, beginning with our towable bowsers which can deliver to difficult to access locations using our Land Rovers. Towable bowsers have capacities of 1 and 2 thousand litres apiece. Our rear wheel steer tanker is also adept at getting in to hard to access places, but that’s got a slightly larger payload of 16,000 litres, clean or potable.

 H20 on site towable bowser  H2o on site  tanker

We have 16,000 litre stainless tanks which can be used to deliver or can be hired as a bulk on demand water supply, left on site and refilled as and when needed.

H2O on site 16k tanks

On this page of the site, you can navigate your way through our commonest water bowsers. The blue colour denotes they can be used for drinking water. We supply these on short or long term hire to construction sites and event locations.

H2O on site drinking water bowsers

Bet you didn’t know we did water coolers for short or long term hire.

Two snazzy little numbers which can deliver chilled and hot water on demand. All you need is a 240 volt plug socket and make a choice between the standard model or the natty little desk top number.

These fit nicely into office and site cabins and are a boon when temperatures rise and people get thirsty.

Also on this page, there’s a link to common spec sheets for the vehicles and equipment we send out to site. They are invaluable to help clients establish that equipment is the correct specification for their needs or in the case of vehicles, dimensions don’t exceed the access location.

Our Emergency Water page summarises how 365 days a year, we have service available.

Where water supplies are cut, our trusty Land Rover revs into action bringing the towable bowser in its wake. Alternatively, we can provide pallets of bottled drinking water.

We’ve a separate page for bottled water giving the bottle sizes and pallet capacities that can be purchased.

We provide bottled water a plenty during the summer months especially, to the burgeoning event and festival market. Bottled water offers convenience over a single source of supply, where large numbers of people can be provided for in a short period of time.

Our Water Testing Services page provides an overview to our latest range of invaluable water hygiene services

If you are providing bulk water for people to drink, then you are responsible for its fitness for purpose.

Briefly, once you have taken delivery of potable water, transferred from our specially prepared tankers or bowsers, it’s drinkability for want of a better word is your responsibility.

DWI (Drinking Water Inspectorate guidelines state that you can only store water for human consumption for 48 hours (secured from contamination).

H2O on site lab

You then must test for the presence of E coli and again every 48 hours.

This is a service we supply, along with testing for the presence of Legionella.

H2O on site water test

We provide mobile on site testing and where necessary, use UKAS accredited laboratories who provide further test information, all fully documented.

Water Quality Information and Drinking Water Quality tabs on this page provide plenty of information about the guidelines you and we both should comply with where drinking water is concerned.

On site service, in – lab results

When you’re dealing with people’s health and hygiene, you need to be sure of your water quality.

Tardis Environmental have been in the bulk water business for almost twenty years so we know a thing or two about water.

These days, assuring the fitness for purpose of your drinking water and the cleanliness of your storage methods comes under strict regulation.

With our new laboratory facilities, we can offer you in-house bacteria monitoring backed up with a regular testing program of your stored bulk drinking water.

 Rigorous cleansing, strict procedures

Water hygiene

Towable 1000 litre drinking water bowser

We carry out daily, weekly and monthly chemical and bacteria monitoring providing strict control on the quality of water we supply from our sites which includes the water used to clean the vessels that store your drinking water all carried out following Health & Safety guidelines.

We’ve the capacity via mobile testing equipment, to provide on-site chemical and bacteria testing on water that has been stored for more than 48 hours (following drinking water guidelines). This includes a test for E-Coli analysed by UKAS accredited laboratories.

We carry out on-site cleans and Chlorination of utilities, buildings (such as welfare cabins, toilet blocks etc), providing certificates of work carried out and its compliance with Health & Safety guidelines.

We only use water storage vessels and pumps which comply with WRAS and DWI Regulation 31.

Water supplied is only drawn from wholesome water authority sources.

Other methods (which we don’t use)

Commonly (and for convenience), many testing services use a system known as ATP for on-site water testing, employing hand held meters.

ATP or Adenosine triphosphate is not a foolproof bacteria test, especially where Legionella bacteria is concerned.

To be truly sure of the cleanliness of your drinking water, opt for a sample taken on-site and analysed in a designated UKAS accredited laboratory. Testing for bacteria by these laboratories conforms to guidance set out in the ACOP L8 document and provides evidence ensuring our on-site testing regime is effective.

Tardis Environmental follow strict guidelines set out in ACOP L8 (2013) Legionnaire’s disease, the control of Legionella bacteria in water systems and the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) guidance document on the implementation of the water supply (Water Quality) regulations 2000 (as amended in England 2012)
