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.

h2O on site coolers

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.

H2O on site landy

H2O On site Land Rover and bowser

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.

H2O bottled water

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.

Tardis and the Crossrail project

Link

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 11.44.44

Crossrail, the largest engineering project in Europe and Tardis has been part of it.

In a nutshell, Crossrail is 73 miles of railway set to serve London and the south east, improving journey times and connecting with many existing lines.

As a supplier of goods and services to the project, Tardis Environmental have invested heavily in our fleet to make them “Crossrail compliant”. This includes the provision of safety equipment that is additional to the level we already send our vehicles to work carrying.

44tonne tanker

Fresnel lenses for example, smaller but similar to those found in lighthouses in this instance they are used to bend light allowing a driver to see personnel or cyclists approaching on the inside blind spot.

Side scan detection is now standard Crossrail  equipment, designed to detect cyclists or pedestrians in close proximity to the nearside.

In practice, audible tones or warnings exterior to the vehicle are triggered when the left hand indicator is activated and should there be a person detected in the field of the scan, the driver inside the cab is alerted by audible tone also.

Some side scan systems have the added safety of exterior cameras greatly reducing the chance of a mishap.

In addition, warning livery is added to the vehicle as are under run bars down each side.

Woe betide any contractor who fails to meet the high standards lain down by Crossrail. Exclusion from all sites and fines meted out often being the penalty.

Safety is in everyone’s interest. Our spec sheets detail our Crossrail compliant vehicles which of course can be used elsewhere, where stringent safety is practised.

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.

Water Bowsers

What can water bowser be used for?

Water bowsers can come in all shapes and sizes depending on what you would use the water bowser for.

Water bowsers have many uses

1,000 IBC Water Bowser

Small 1,000 litre water bowser is many used to supply small amount of water to a small welfare unit or just to help water the garden. When these water bowsers are filled with water there total weight is 1 ton, which can then be used as a marquee weight if you have to build your marquee on tarmac.

500 gallon static

Water Bowser Hire

New Static Water Bowser

Our 500 gallon water bowsers can be used for supplying water to a welfare unit, or can be used as a main water supply, if no mains water is available for companies like hydro demolition who need lots of water to perform their jobs.

500 gallon towable water bowser

The 500 gallon towable bowser is pretty much the same as the static bowser, but is placed on a towable trailer. With it’s off road tyres it is the ideal choice for construction sites that need to move the water bowser around the site. The towable water bowser can also be fitted with a dust suppression kit.

10,000 Litre large Water Tank

This is many used for sites that are contracted to be at a site over a long period. Can also supply large amounts of water to large welfare units. It’s also the choice of most hydro demolition companies as it holds vast amount of water. With its new easy refill tap, our drivers can do a water refill with ease.

All our drivers are EUSR Water Hygiene trained to give you that piece of mind, when refilling the water supply.

If you need more information on our water bowser hire service then give us a call today on 0800 731 0589.

Bulk Water Anyone?

Do you need a bulk water supply?

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.

6000 Gallon Water Tank

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.

Large Water Bowser

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

10000 Water Bowser

We can also supply fresh water up to 6,000 gallons.

All our bowsers have an on/off tap that will stop and release the flow of water. This is okay if you don’t need it to flow like a tap at home.  If you need fast flowing water then you could also add an on-demand water pump.
