 Rigorous cleansing, strict procedures

Water hygiene

Towable 1000 litre drinking water bowser

We carry out daily, weekly and monthly chemical and bacteria monitoring providing strict control on the quality of water we supply from our sites which includes the water used to clean the vessels that store your drinking water all carried out following Health & Safety guidelines.

We’ve the capacity via mobile testing equipment, to provide on-site chemical and bacteria testing on water that has been stored for more than 48 hours (following drinking water guidelines). This includes a test for E-Coli analysed by UKAS accredited laboratories.

We carry out on-site cleans and Chlorination of utilities, buildings (such as welfare cabins, toilet blocks etc), providing certificates of work carried out and its compliance with Health & Safety guidelines.

We only use water storage vessels and pumps which comply with WRAS and DWI Regulation 31.

Water supplied is only drawn from wholesome water authority sources.

Other methods (which we don’t use)

Commonly (and for convenience), many testing services use a system known as ATP for on-site water testing, employing hand held meters.

ATP or Adenosine triphosphate is not a foolproof bacteria test, especially where Legionella bacteria is concerned.

To be truly sure of the cleanliness of your drinking water, opt for a sample taken on-site and analysed in a designated UKAS accredited laboratory. Testing for bacteria by these laboratories conforms to guidance set out in the ACOP L8 document and provides evidence ensuring our on-site testing regime is effective.

Tardis Environmental follow strict guidelines set out in ACOP L8 (2013) Legionnaire’s disease, the control of Legionella bacteria in water systems and the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) guidance document on the implementation of the water supply (Water Quality) regulations 2000 (as amended in England 2012)

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

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

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.

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.

Rain Water Harvesting

How can you harvest the rain water?

Did you know that by harvesting rain water you could save up to 50% on the consumption of your household.

How does rain water harvesting work?

Well, it’s very simple… your rain harvesting system takes rainwater from the guttering system of your property, this should be a sealed connection to avoid any debris from entering the rain harvesting tank, the rain water will then pass through a filter system to remove debris from the gutter. Your rain harvester should be located underground and surrounded by concrete. If your system is not protected by concrete then it could cave in or have a root break through the tank. This also happens to septic tanks if not correctly installed.

Rainwater is stored in the tank until you have need of it, there will be a control unit inside your house that will control the water from the harvesting tank. The control unit will be connected to the mains and has sensors inside which will tell whether there is water inside the tank and will choose to use the rainwater if there is enough or switch to mains water supply, this is great for those low rain fall months.

What can I use the rainwater for?

Rainwater can be used for dish washers, washing machines, watering your garden and washing your car.

Need help or information on how we can help you harvest rain water.

Need Bulk water?

Bulk Water Storage

There are many uses for water. But did you know that water is used to cut through concrete. This is called hydro demolition. Hydro Demolition is becoming increasingly popular in the construction industry; the main benefit is that although the water can cut through concrete it does not damage the metal frame within the concrete. This will mean that repairs can be carried out with minimum interference.

What other benefits does hydro demolition have?

  • Vibration free eliminating HAV’s risk for operators compared with percussive tools
  • Vibration free eliminates percussive noise transfer within a structure
  • No damage of cracks to adjacent concrete
  • Embedded steel is undamaged and cleaned
  • Creates an excellent base to form a strong bond surface for new material

So what does our bulk water storage service have in common with hydro demolition? On some Demolition sites mains water supply is not available, so they would need a large volume of bulk water to be supplied. This is where our H2O Tank comes in very handy with its massive 4000 gallon capacity of fresh water (Not suitable for drinking).

4000 Bulk Water

Need more than 4000 gallons?

Tardis can provide bulk water storage tanks up to 6000 gallons. Both the 4000 and the 6000 gallon tanks come on a trailer for easy transportation.
