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.

High Pressure Jetting

 A jetting bomb is tear shaped and goes on the end of the high pressure hose. This tear shaped metal nozzle has approximately 7 small holes, One hole is located on the tip if nozzle, this cuts through the blockage in the pipe and the rest of the holes are located at the rear of nozzle and spray a high pressured ring of water to clean the rest of the pipe.

You could end up with a flooded car park or construction site, which could force you to close the car park, until the matter is resolved. With a Tardis Scheduled gully sucking service, we will help in preventing this from happening.

Drain or Septic Tank Problems?

Are you having drain problems?

If so then don’t go tearing up the back garden and replacing the whole sewage system before you talk to Tardis Environmental.

We can check your sewage system with our CCTV Survey and drain mapping services for any blockages or cracks within the sewage pipes. Our Re-lining Repairs and Patch repairs can fix any piping that may be cracked or damage without digging up the whole back garden.

Blockages can be sorted with our high pressure jetting service which is on 24hr call out.

No problem found within the pipe system.

Septic tanks can even produce problems ranging from tree roots that crack and create a whole within the Septic tank which will cause it to leak and smell. Parking a car or building a new patio with concrete on top of where the septic tank is buried which could cause it to crack and cave in. Kill off all the friendly bacteria that helps eat the sludge that falls to the bottom of the tank, which could cause the septic tank to block up.

Tardis Environmental can solve and even help prevent any problems that may occur with our extensive knowledge ranging from, CCTV Surveys, High Pressure Jetting, Pipe repairs, Root cutting and Septic Tank Emptying.

All Fully covered with our Public Liability Cover 

Keeping a Septic Tank and drain system in good condition

Do you know how to keep a septic tank and drain in good condition?

Here are some problems that may occur and recommended service to help solve any problems you have.

Don’t flush too much toilet cleaner down into the septic tank as too much toilet cleaner could kill the bacteria which are used to break down solids and other stuff for easy pumping.

Try not to flush nappies and sanitary towels down the toilet as this may block the inlet and outlets of the septic tank and cause it to spill into the drain field which could create a nasty smell.

Also keep an eye for any trees that may grow near your septic tank and drain system as a root from a tree may crack the surface of your septic tank or drain system, which could be a costly repair. One other thing to keep in mind is not to put too much weight on top of the Septic tank as it may put too much pressure and cause the septic tank to crack and splint.

Septic Tank emptying is recommended to happen at least once every two years depending on size and use of your septic tank. I would recommend getting your septic tank emptied every year to keep it in good order and avoid any costly bills to fix or replace a septic tank.

Check your pipes in your drainage system to see if any of them need a patch repair. If you find a pipe that needs more than a patch repair you could always get a drainage re-lining repair which will re-line the pipe back to working order.

Some older houses tend to have an old drainage system, you may notice that when you flush your toilet or empty your bath water it may be slow in going through your drainage system, but when checking the pipes you don’t see any cracks or splits in the system.

To solve this problem, first get a cctv survey to root out the problem, most common problems are blockages that slow the flow of wet water waste which can be solved be a jetting service which uses high pressured water to force out any blockages.

Tardis Environmental can provide all the above services which are Pipe Patch Repairs, High pressure jetting service, CCTV Survey, root cutting service and Septic tank emptying. Tardis has Full Public Liability cover as well. 

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.
