On Demand water pumps in Sub-Zero Temperatures

With the winter months being right around the corner and even though it is nice and mild currently, the colder weather unfortunately will be with us soon enough. With this in mind it is very important to remember that if you have got one of our on demand water pumps on hire that they are not designed to be in use in either frosty conditions or in sub-zero temperatures.

Therefore, should the temperature where the pump is being used go down to 1 degree Celsius or lower, then the on demand water pump must then be taken out of service. The on demand water pump needs to be taken out of service because the water could become frozen inside the pump, this could then result the water pump to become damaged and then it would be no longer be fit for purpose and a replacement water pump would then be necessary for the job. For more information on our water pumps please click here.

To the avoid damages happening to the on demand water pumps this winter season whilst they are on hire to yourselves, remember once the temperature drops down to 1 degree Celsius to take the pump out of service. This is so that there is no risk of the on demand water pumps becoming damaged from the sub-zero temperatures.

To take the on demand water pumps out of service when the temperature drops correctly, please follow the steps below:

  • Switch the on demand water pump off.
  • Make sure that the water pump is no longer connected to the water supply.
  • Store the water pump in a warm place.

Children in Need with Tardis

This year to help raise money for children in need we decided on a fancy dress and a bake off. The tardis team came in dressed up as either a superhero or their childhood hero in order to help raise money for the great cause as well as bringing in cakes and also eating cakes.

Before we got to selling and eating the cakes we had brought in, we first had to decide on the best baker which went to a joint effort to Heather and Zoe with the cupcakes and a shout out to Amy who made her own Pudsey bear cake!



Zoe’s cupcakes went down well before we managed to get a picture!

Hazardous Waste Removal and Disposal

As you can probably imagine the transport and disposal of hazardous waste is strictly regulated as well as there being many different kinds of hazardous waste that needs different licenses and different tankers. Here at Tardis Environmental we have the knowledge, the equipment and the licensing. With nationwide coverage and accounts in place with a network of licensed hazardous waste disposal facilities. Tardis Environmental are in a prime position to provide a hazardous waste disposal service throughout the UK. Here at Tardis Environmental we are licensed waste carriers and brokers, for further information click here.

The hazardous wet waste that we can remove are:

  • Oil and water from interceptors

Interceptors are common drainage installations on many industrial sites, car parks and large cooking facilities throughout the UK and also known as oil catchers. Here at Tardis Environmental we have a fleet of vacuum tankers suitable for emptying your interceptor.

  • Bunded fuel tanks

The bund captures any leakage caused by either having an overfill or a failure. Bunds can often fill up with rain water and debris, the rain water in the bund would be classed as contaminated waste and therefore should be disposed of.

  •  Drip trays

These provide temporary storage for containers and drums and are useful for preventing drips and small leaks.

See the below for a picture of one of our hazardous waste removal tankers.

Pillow Tanks

Here at Tardis Environmental we now offer a range of pillow tanks with the capacity of up to 1000 m3 for preserving water resources, they can be used for both temporary and permanent solutions.

Back to the Future with Tardis Environmental

Today is the day! In Back to the Future in which Marty McFly travelled to the future to today. With it being 30 years since the film was released, here at Tardis Environmental we decided to look back and see how things have changed.

In the last 30 years there has been many improvements from the international drinking water supply and sanitation decade also known as the first water decade, which took place between the years 1981- 1990. This was due to the worlds needs for basic sanitation services for example drinking water and waste water disposal. Fast forward to today where even here at Tardis Environmental we can supply clean and potable bulk water across the UK. Here is a picture of one of our water tankers. For more information about our bulk water tankers please go to our website by clicking here.

tardis water tanker

As well as drinking water sanitation that has improved throughout the years also, portable toilets have improved drastically over the years. From the first portable toilets being made of wood and metal and they were too heavy to transport as well as not being very hygienic. Then in the early 1970’s when fibre glass was introduced to be used for portable toilets, however due to the material the portable toilets still absorbed odours. In the mid – 1970’s polyethylene portable toilets were introduced they are light weight,durable and still the most common material for portable toilets today. The need for portable toilets is still needed for a variety of reasons from construction sites to events. Here at Tardis Environmental we have a range of portable toilets to suit your needs, click here for more information on our portable toilets.
