Waste Tanker servicing

Why do I need my Welfare unit Serviced and the waste tank emptied? If you have a welfare unit at a site that has both toilets and a canteen then you will need to have the welfare unit serviced. So what does the service include? A service is where Tardis will restock your soap dispensers, resupply your toilet rolls and anything else that needs restocking. Some Welfare Units have their own Clean Water tank, Which Tardis will be able to fill with clean fresh none drinking water.

When placing an order for a Welfare waste tank empty service please let us know what the size of the waste tank is. This is to ensure that we send the correct vehicle to empty your waste tank.

A vacuum tanker can perform services like septic tank emptying, cesspool emptying, cesspit cleaning, hazardous waste removal, tank wash downs and soakaway tests.

What is a soakaway test?

A soakaway test is where a construction site needs to check the grounds soaking abilities. Our tanker will then turn up and pump water over the area they want to test and then see how long it will take to soak into the ground. This is to make sure the ground under the construction will not flood in light or heavy rain.

When we take your wet waste it becomes our waste and our responsibility to dispose of it within our strict guidelines and to make sure you have peace of mind. You can also request proof of disposal.

Mobile Septic Tank News

Our New Mobile Vacuum Tanker Scores at Wolves Football Ground!

The Mobile Vacuum Tanker does not just do septic tank emptying services; it will also perform toilet services and even deliver a small amount of fresh water that is suitable for washing hands.

Wolves Academy

Here is a Picture of our Mobile Vacuum Tanker at Wolves Football Academy Club performing one of its many services.

The Hoff having a read in a Portable Toilet!!!

The Former Baywatch star David Hasslhoff is caught short on a portable Toilet backstage at the MTV EMAs.

Many of the stars backstage that had attended the MTV Europe Music Awards would have been drinking expensive champagne and enjoying the canapés on offer from MTV.


But David Hasslhoff, now 60 had different ideas at the glamorous event in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday night.

The star opted for some alone time and decided to hid away from all the rustle and bustle by taking a magazine to the nearest Portable toilet.

Emergency pit stop: David stopped at a Portable toilet that was backstage at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday where he was an official roving reporter at the event

The American actor and singer best known for Bay Watch and Knight Rider and sung a song called jump in my car (which I Love), who is also treasured by the German public, was asked to be an official roving reporter behind the scenes at the MTV ceremony.

David chose to spend the night taking unusual photographs of himself his fellow celebrities.

David looked the part by adding a touch of glamour to his outfit with a pink silk top which made him stand out from the crowd.

He teamed the top with a pair of black jeans while he wore a pair of black and white snakeskin shoes on his feet.

Even Celebrities need to use an Portable toilet, At Tardis we are experts in event and construction portable toilets, so for a HASSLE free service visit our website or give one our friendly  sales team a call on 0800 731 0589 for a quote today.

Special Toilet Designed to be a Goal Keeper!!!

That’s Right two companies in Japan have come together to create a goalkeeper that is a toilet!!!

You have probably shouted at your team’s goal keeper of being a load of toilet. Now the worrying thing is that could be true.

Who would come up with this idea?

Who else but JAPAN, the inventors of all things weird but Hi-tech gadgets. But they have seriously out done themselves this time with a Loo that can calculate a Balls trajectory.

All the shots were done by former Japanese international striker Tatsuhiko Kubo. This one off special toilet is a result of collaboration between toilet manufacturer TOTO and the Sports Lottery firm toto and was asked to promote environmental issues, I have watched the video myself and none of it makes any sense to me, then again football and toilet mixed in with environment issues was never a going to be clear to me.

But you have to admire what they have accomplished, a toilet that can save a shot on goal.

So how is it done?

First of the toilet is placed if the centre of the goal with two camera either side of the goal posts, these cameras film at 250FPS (Frames per Second) which will track the balls trajectory and send the information to the toilet, which will then pivot in the right direction and then release a ball from inside the toilet to collide with the football.

All this is done in 0.1 seconds.

We don’t have Goalkeeping toilets, but we done have a Top Portable Toilet Service at a Low cost and 24hr call out service Nationwide.

Septic Tank Done Before Christmas!

Get your septic tank ready before Xmas and Winter Kicks in!!!

If you need a Septic Tank Emptying Service or need to hire some Portable Toilets during Christmas then I would recommend booking them now so you have peace of mind during Christmas and winter.

With the weather starting to get colder and the days are getting darker it’s important to get your septic tank emptied before it turns to Winter as you may find your septic tank could freeze if a seal has gone on the hatch or any of the pipes.

With winter and Xmas soon approaching it will be best to have all this sorted as Construction Sites and Depots will close during Xmas and the New Year. After the Xmas Holiday things tend to get back to its busy self here at Tardis so try and have it ordered before the Xmas holiday.

Ordered a Portable Toilet and scared that the waste tank will freeze in the winter. There’s no need to panic as our Portable Toilets come with a chemical that will help prevent the wet waste within the tank from freezing, if you’re not sure then just ask upon ordering.

Tardis have depots Nationwide that means we can provide a septic tank empty at a low cost to our customers.
