With our new laboratory facilities, we can offer you in-house bacteria monitoring backed up with a regular testing program of your stored bulk drinking water.

 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)

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.
