Top Tips – Siting your septic tank for easy servicing in the future

Tanker emptying Septic TankWhile a septic tank might not be the topic of choice for many conversations, if you do require one there are a few things you need to keep in mind:

When siting your Tardis waste tank, you need to take into account that it will, of course, eventually require an empty! It would usually be carried out by one of our tankers so we need to ensure that there is sufficient access for an HGV to be able to reach it. And while we carry a standard 40 metres of hose, we can, on request, attend a site that requires more.

Can you drink water direct from a water bowser supply?

Water BowserHiring a water bowser is an easy and cost-effective way of providing onsite solutions where no mains water connections are available.

A drinking water bowser supplies water that is safe to drink, however, it is not advisable to drink water direct from it. The water should be checked for any discolouration and boiled before use when required for drinking, brushing teeth, washing food and cooking.

We’re also able to offer a weekly water delivery service with our fleet of split tankers,¬†keeping your¬†water fresh.

Where did the name Tardis Hire come from?

Tardis Portable Toilet Hire LogoTardis Toilet hire business was formed in 1994, but where did the name of the business came from? We asked Chris, the founder for an answer.

“Working in the construction sector, I learnt many slang names for the portable toilet. One of those names was Tardis and, not wanting to be to crude, this was the name selected for our new company.”

Tardis was incorporated in to a group of companies under the holding company of Boydon construction ltd, By the year 2000, it was decided to concentrate on Tardis as the main business and in 2002 the name was changed to Tardis Environmental UK limited.

Today, we continue to go from strength to strength, with our range of services from Portable Toilet Hire to septic tank emptying, high pressure water jetting, drain CCTV surveys and drain mapping. And you can’t miss our tankers with their distinctive green and yellow livery and iconic Tardis branding in red.
