Building a New Septic Tank?

Want some Advice on Septic tanks

When installing a new septic tank you must make sure you install the septic tank at least 15m from your home and within 10m of a vehicle access point. This makes it easy for us to perform a septic tank emptying service as access to the chamber will be easy. Do not build on a slope as the septic tanks drain field could be releasing the waste water to the adjoining landowner.

What should a new septic tank come with?

The tank should have at least two chambers, which will need to operate in series. All materials used to help assembly the tank should be able to prevent leaking and ingress of subsoil water. The tank itself must be made from suitable material and be sound in structure. Most tanks will have a BBA certificate. It is also easy to forget when installing pipe work to make it easy to access, this makes jobs like desludging and drain repairs a lot cheaper if anything were to happen.

But before you go and install a septic tank you must make sure the drainfield is able to soak up the water. To test the area in which you want the drainfield to be you must do a soakaway test; this is where we would come with either a towable bowser or our massive 6,000 gallon tanker. This really depends on the size of the drainfield which is normally calculated is the number of people living in the property or the number of people at the site. The soakaway test is where fresh clean water is poured into the ground where it is timed to see how fast the water is soaked up. If the water takes too long to drain away or does not drain at all then you will not be allowed to build the drainfield there.

Don’t worry if the water does not drain away fast enough or at all, there are solutions. The main cause for water to drain slowly or not at all is there could be a layer of clay under the soil. You can get the soil check to see how big the layer of clay is. There are some solutions for clay but I would recommend finding a different spot.

When you have your new septic tank installed remember to have at least one septic tank empty a year. Tardis Environmental can provide a scheduled septic tank emptying service.

What is a Soakaway?

Information on Soakaway test

In April 2002 a surface water soakaway design was introduced, this was to ensure that storm water soaks away effective.

Don’t think you need a soakaway! Building Regulation H3 Says,

‘The requirements of H3 will be met if rainwater soaking into the ground is distributed sufficiently so that it does not damage foundations of the proposed building or any adjacent structures’.

The H3 Regulation guidance note outlines suitable arrangements for domestic type soakaways only, and it should not be taken as a definitive guide. For more detailed guidance refer to the aforementioned document.

So what is the function of a soakaway?

A Soakaway must be able to immediately store storm-water or heavy rain to runoff and allow the water’s efficient infiltration into the adjacent soil. The time it takes for the water to soakaway will determine the size of the soakaway required.

This is where our Towable Bowser or bulk water H2O Tankers can help in hot conditions like summer where rain might not come for a few weeks (This is Britain but even we have sunny spells). We can supply Clean Water (None Drinking) from 500 all the way up to 6,000 gallons.

For more information on how Tardis Environmental can help you perform a soakaway test call 0800 731 0589 or visit our website for more details.

Need More Water Bowsers

Water bowsers in high demand

We have just purchasedmore towable water bowsers due to the high demand we are receiving. Our water bowsers can come either as towable or static with the capacity to hold approximately 500 gallons of clean fresh water. Our towable Bowsers will also have off road tyres for easy transportation on construction sites.

Water Bowser Hire

The Water that is stored within the bowser is not for drinking! It is only to be used for washing and general water use.

If you need drinking water then hire out one of our 250 gallon towable drinking water bowsers.

Need bulk water?

We can supply you with a 10,000 litre water bowser if you need a bulk supply of water. We can also arrange a scheduled water refill. Our 10,000 water bowser now have an easy to fill inlet pipe that allows our Driver to fill the bowser without having to open the hatch that is located on top of the Water bowser.

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.

For all the information or advice please call Tardis on our Freephone number 0800 731 0589. Or visit our website and see what other services we can provide you.
