Waste Tanks for Glastonbury

23 waste tanks supplied to Glastonbury Festival

Custom Waste Tank

 

 

 

 

This year we have been asked again to supply Glastonbury Festival 23 waste tanks

Because we fabricate our own tanks from 4mm steel and have our own fabricator. This will enable us to fabricate any size or any shape waste tank you will need for your site or festival.

Why go steel over plastic for your waste tank

The benefits of a steel waste tank is that a steel tank is highly durable, can be moved around site without causing much damage to the tank, will still operate in cold or hot weather without cracking and most importantly you can stack your welfare or cabin unit on top of the tank, which will create space at your festival or construction site.

Have a waste tank to suit your site needs

As we fabricate our own tanks, we can fabricate a tank to suit your needs. We came create any shape and size tank with lots of additional features than your standard waste tank.

Tank features

  •  Viewing Eye
  • Submersible pump
  • High level alarm
  • Inspection hatch
  • Stopper Valve

Flood Warning!

Need a Fast Response to Flooding!

If you’re in a high-risk flood area, then Tardis Environmental can help weather you’re a domestic or construction customer.

Flooded Car Park

The met office has issued out warnings and alerts for known areas that are at risk of flooding. So what can we do to help prevent or even minimize damage caused by flooding?

We have a large fleet of vacuum tankers that can take large amounts of wet wastewater to help alleviate possible damage caused be flooding. Some of our tankers can also have a high vol jet vac that can clean your drains from leafs and debris that may slow the rate the floodwater gets drained.

Tardis Environmental also has industrial water pumps that can move the wastewater from a flooded area to a drain or river that is not flooded.

The WX10 and WH20 water pumps are useful for small jobs like filling small water tanks and increasing water pressure.

The WB20 and WB30 are great for moving large amounts of water with small debris within the water.

Now the WT20 is probably the best bet to move waste water as it can handle large amounts of water and large sized debris up to 24mm.

Custom Waste Tanks

Fabricated Waste Tank to Suit You

Did you know that Tardis Environmental can fabricate a waste tank to suit you and your site needs. As we are able to fabricate our own waste tanks, we are able to build waste tanks to different shapes and sizes.

Custom Waste Tank

 

We have a current project where we were asked to fabricate two large waste tanks that needed to hold approx. 17,000 litres each. We were also instructed to add some special features like a digital overflow alarm system that would let you know when the tank is nearing its capacity.

The two waste tanks will also be connected by a 6” waste pipe so when the first tank is full it will then begin to fill the second tank. Two submersible pumps will help fill the second waste tank.

Pipe Connections

Vent Waste Tank

Both waste tanks will have two 1” vents. The tanks will also be fitted with a safety hatch due to the massive size of the waste tanks.

We also have pre-made waste tanks for hire, ranges include tanks with the capacity to hold 50 litres, 500 litres, 1,000 and 1,500 litres other sizes are available upon request.

Call our friendly hire desk team who will assist you further on the hire or purchase of our waste tanks or just give them a call for more information. Freephone 0800 731 0589

Septic Tank Empty

All you need to know about septic tank emptying

Septic tanks are mainly found in areas where a mains sewage line is not available and the sewage and waste water needs to be collected in a septic tank before being released in ground water.

Domestic Septic Tank

You are probably thinking why I would need a septic tank emptying service if the water gets released back in to the ground water level. The Septic tank has 3 layers of waste water, the bottom layer of water is called the sludge layer and this will be eaten by helpful bacteria. This is solid waste that drops to the bottom of the septic tank. So try not to use too much bleach or antibacterial products. Also if you do not empty the sludge from the bottom of the septic tank the sludge layer will build up as the bacteria will not be able to handle the increased sludge.

The second layer or the middle layer of waste water inside a septic tank is called waste water. This layer is the layer that will exit through a T-shaped outlet pipe to a drain field or soakaway field, which will then soak through the soil back to the ground water flow for further treatment.

The first layer otherwise known as the scum layer is a build-up of oil and grease and items that don’t decompose. This layer sits on top of the waste water layer and is the most common problem cause for blocking up your septic tank.

So having a scheduled septic tank empty not only saves you money but will give you peace of mind. Plus have a septic tank empty service will help prolong the life of your sewage system.
