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.
Tardis Going Further to Help Protect the Environment
Tardis spend most of our time taking other companies wet waste and have to dispose of it in a correct manner.
But what happens to all our waste at our offices around the UK. Well here at the head office in Walsall, we have just purchased some new bins so we can help the environment by recycling better.
We now have bins for general waste like crisp packets and other rubbish that cannot be recycled. Our green bin will hold all our glass and drink cans as these can be recycled and be used again. The blue bins will be recycling all our paper we use, apart from cardboard which will be placed in the red bin.
Not only do we recycle our paper, but if we print on one side and don’t need the paper anymore we place it back in the print and print on the other side as this will reduce our need for paper, which in turn will mean less trees being cut day.
Our services include:- Septic tank emptying, cesspool/cesspit emptying, gully sucking, interceptor emptying, grease trap, hazardous waste removal, portable toilet hire, portable toilet servicing, water bowser hire and up to 30,000 litre tanker trailer hire with fresh clean water (not suitable for drinking) or call our freephone number on 0800 731 0589
As you know Tardis Environmental can perform a septic tank emptying service and will take 1000 gallons of septic tank waste per septic tank emptying service. So what happens when you have two 500 gallon septic tanks that are full and are in need of a tank emptying service?
Normally we would come and empty both tanks as they both add up to 1000 gallons. But when we went out to empty the two tanks at the site, we found that they were not installed correctly in to the ground as both waste tanks have the same problem.
The problem with the two tanks was they were not properly sealed to stop rain and storm water from creating a layer of water above the tank.
When we started to empty the two tanks and was getting close to our 1000 gallon limit we noticed the two tanks were still not empty. That’s when the storm and drain water started to refill the empty septic tank.
We then contacted the customer and told them the problem with the two tanks, who then instructed us to continue to empty the two tank. After we emptied both septic tanks we measured how much wet waste we have taken from the two tanks which where ment to hold a 1000 gallons between them, we calculated that we took 1800 gallons of wet waste. Because the septic tanks were not sealed correctly a further 800 gallons needed to be taken of which was rain water.
So make sure your septic tank is correctly installed.
Did you know that Tardis Environmental can fabricate a waste tank to suit you and your site needs. As we are able to fabricate our own waste tanks, we are able to build waste tanks to different shapes and sizes.
We have a current project where we were asked to fabricate two large waste tanks that needed to hold approx. 17,000 litres each. We were also instructed to add some special features like a digital overflow alarm system that would let you know when the tank is nearing its capacity.
The two waste tanks will also be connected by a 6” waste pipe so when the first tank is full it will then begin to fill the second tank. Two submersible pumps will help fill the second waste tank.
Both waste tanks will have two 1” vents. The tanks will also be fitted with a safety hatch due to the massive size of the waste tanks.
We also have pre-made waste tanks for hire, ranges include tanks with the capacity to hold 50 litres, 500 litres, 1,000 and 1,500 litres other sizes are available upon request.
Call our friendly hire desk team who will assist you further on the hire or purchase of our waste tanks or just give them a call for more information. Freephone 0800 731 0589
We get calls from all over the UK requesting a septic tank emptying service. But not a lot of people know that a Vacuum tanker can do a lot more than just suck up wet waste from a septic tank.
Some of our tanker tanks are split into 2 sections. Here is an example, one of our 26ton Vacuum tankers can hold 3000 gallons of liquid 2500 gallons of this liquid will be waste from an septic tank emptying service and the other 500 gallons is for fresh clean water to refill our Tardis water bowsers.
Not only can our tankers hold fresh water (Not for Drinking), they can also come with added attachments that can perform jobs like a wash down after a septic tank emptying service to leave the septic tank nice and clean or some of our tanker have a pressure washer lance to help remove hard debris that is stuck. The pressure washing lance is normally used for pumping stations.
There are also other wet waste jobs our vacuum tankers can remove.
Our vacuum tankers can remove wet waste from cesspit/cesspools, portable toilets, welfare units, storm drains and most hazardous waste.
So if you need a septic tank emptying service or an wet waste removal service then give Tardis Environmental a call today on 0800 731 0589

If you are working at a construction site and there is no mains water, then the next best thing is a supply on bulk water. Bulk water can either can as a large 6,000 gallon water tank or a 4,000 galloon trailered ISO water tank. These are mainly for someone who has machines that need a lot of water like a hydro demolition company or if you have a large welfare unit that needs a lot of water. If you think you going to need an ISO water tank for a constant bulk water supply then a static ISO Tank would be a better choice for you.
Bulk water tanks are not the only solution. You could hire a water bowser which is smaller and easier to find a place for. There are a few types of water bowsers that you need to keep in mind. First of you can have the massive 10,000 litre water bowser if the 4,000 gallon ISO Water tankis too big.
Then we have our 2,000 litre static and towable water bowsers.
The static water bowser is much like the large water bowser where it will stay in one place. The towable water is highly mobile with its off road tyres. The towable bowser is placed on a trailer which can then be hooked up to a tow bar and transported to another location with ease.
All our ISO bulk water tanks and our water bowsers can also come with an electric on demand water pump for a better flow of water. Petrol water pumps are also available.
For any more information on any of our services please call 0800 731 0589
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.
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.
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.
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.
For more information on our portable toilet service and what we can provide for you call Tardis on 0800 731 0589.
