On target for the event and festival season

As the bank holiday weekend approaches, we’re scurrying around the country helping organisers get their houses in order for a weekend’s serious partying.

Of course all that revelry has to be catered for, toilet and drinking facilities for example.

This year, we’re more on target than ever to meet the needs of our event organising clients.

Portable toilets of course, lots of those sitting on sites as we speak ready and waiting for the weekend.

Our new self- contained 4 bay shower trailers were extremely popular from the moment we put them into service because they provide private bathing for up to 4 people and are easily set up in less than ten minutes.

Catering for larger events

Larger events call on us to provide waste tanks which are custom manufactured by Tardis to a high standard of fabrication again, taking the hassle from providing bulk sanitation in places where a lot of people gather.

Tardis Hire Drinking Water Station

Improves water delivery time by a factor of 4

Bottles, bowsers or tanker trailers, we can supply water to meet your needs from 330ml in a nifty plastic bottle ready to drink, to 32,000 litres in a whopping big tanker which if required can be prepared for safe drinking, with a quality assured water supply and a *WRAS approved delivery point. * Water Regulations Advisory Scheme

Bottled water arrives by the pallet and is the easy fix option if people need to be hydrated quickly and without setting up approved drinking water points. They start at 330ml and go up to 1.5 litres sizes

Water testing services 

As an organiser, you are responsible for providing a safe facility. Therefore, your storage and delivery methods have to meet standards and regulations and water for consumption also has to be tested after 48 hours storage, every 48 hours afterwards.

Water testing

Of course, you’ve Tardis H2O on site just a phone call away who will advise and provide the equipment and services you need to comply with regulations and keep your guests happy and healthy and that includes our water testing services.

And you know, the nice thing about using either Tardis Hire or H2O on site, when the partying is over, we come along and take it all way til next time.

Tardis Hire provides portable toilets for events, festivals, weddings etc. Also we have tailored options such as disabled access units, 4 and 6 bay urinals (which cuts down loo queues).

Hand wash stations are also a popular hire option where a lot of people gather especially in hot sticky weather.

h2O on site

Tardis H2O on site regularly provides clean or quality assured drinking water for public use. Clean water is drawn from authorised water hydrants, but because you can’t strictly control on how it is stored (refrigeration for example), it should be boiled before use, as you should with any uncertified water supply.

Boiling your water first is not always an option open to you out in the big wide world.

If a quality assured drinking water supply is required, then the vessel used to deliver the water is pre- prepared, as are the hoses and fittings used to transfer the water and of course the storage vessel too.

This is all recorded and controlled to *DWI standards

*Drinking Water Inspectorate.

As we already mentioned, testing for the condition of water has to take place after 48 hours of storage to ensure its fitness for purpose (drinking).

The last thing you want as an event organiser is to have people getting stomach bugs en masse, which is why we have trained people who come along and verify the water as fit for purpose or provide the corrective] action otherwise.

It’s a standard of service our clients have come to trust and which we take very seriously in our sphere of operations.

So, wherever you might find yourself this coming weekend, have a great time and may the sun be at your back.

Duty of care, it’s what we do

Duty of care

3:30am in the Tardis depot

Duty of care

If you’ve seen our vehicles on your travels you’ll have no doubt noticed, we keep the Tardis Environmental  fleet in tip top condition.

Something you may not be aware of are the regular checks which are carried out in the wee small hours on a weekly basis in our depots.

These are performed in addition to the daily checks a driver is legally obliged to complete before setting out for the day.

Three shredded wheat…

Tardis tanker captains are an energetic bunch and the first ones are rattling on the gates before 4am, so the checks for defects has to begin before those who’ve had three shredded wheats for brekky arrive and want to set out on the day’s tankering.

There’s a set procedure laid out on our DR6 Defect report. As you might imagine, it contains the usual checks that anyone might carry out on the family car before a journey, tyres, lights, oil and water levels.

Duty of care

We go a little deeper especially as the average Tardis tanker has a few more lights on than say a Nissan Micra.  Flashing beacons, side running lights, side reflectors, all klaxon warning devices and safety cameras come under the scrutiny of our HGV inspector Dan.

Mirrors, battery boxes, clips and covers, mud guards even the steps up into the cab are checked for safety and conformity.

Duty of care

Defects are identified and rectified before they cause trouble

The morning we looked in on the proceedings, one portable toilet service truck had a nail in a tyre which was swiftly replaced with a new wheel and a diligent HGV driver suspected a problem with the brakes on his tractor unit which was brought into the depot and swapped for another, allowing him to be on his way with 30,000 litres of clean water.

Each vehicle in the depot, checked and all findings recorded. Witnessed and countersigned by the driver the first of which showed us his tail lights at 4:10am sweeping regally out of the depot.

By 5am the yard is as busy as Smithfield market with tankers exiting every few minutes their missions loaded into the hand held PDAs each driver carries.

Just about the only thing we don’t do first thing in a morning, is polish the tanker captain’s boots and give him a mug of tea, so there’s room for improvement yet..

We’ve just published a video of the procedure which can be viewed by clicking below.
