WELCOME TO TARDIS ENVIRONMENTAL UK
Tardis Environmental enters its 28th year in business.
The company was founded on the hire of portable toilets to the construction industry.
And boy, how we’ve grown.
From one depot in the West Midlands to eleven, strategically located around the country, providing a host of environmental services which include:
Waste Tanker Services – we empty toilet blocks and welfare cabin tanks, topping up with clean water for hand washing and toilet flushing.
We service all makes of portable toilet in addition to our own familiar brand. Septic tanks and cess pits come under our care too.
Fabrications – In addition to emptying waste tanks, did you know we also make steel waste tanks both for sale and hire, but also we fabricate to order in our modern and well equipped fabrications shop. As we like to say, if you can sketch it, we can build it, including any special features you might require and on a short lead time too.
Water Services – As we expanded, the company embraced the many site based water needs of the construction industries and with our dedicated tanker fleet and separate branding of Tardis H2O, we provide bulk water (clean or potable) from 1000 litres to 30,000 litres per load.
In addition to this, we also provide the vessels to keep it in. Towable bowsers, static containers in a variety of sizes and dispense options.
Quality assured drinking water.
This takes a little more preparation care and storage when you consider you’re providing water for human consumption and so, we have the staff and expertise on hand, to ensure the drinking water we deliver is in prime condition, fit for purpose and stays that way.
Use the site navigation to find your way around or, the useful search option that will help you narrow the search for a product or service.
And of course, we’re still contactable by telephone, same number as always 0800 731 0589.
Water is just water, right? Wrong. Choosing the wrong water could result in a serious health condition. But don’t worry because we have compiled a detailed guide to help you find the best type of water for your site. Read on to find out more.
How is Clean Water Measured?
Water levels are measured using the pH scale. The pH scale is rated from 1-14 with 1 representing the most acidotic result, 13 representing alkalinity, and 7 being the neutral point. The value that is given represents the drinkability of water.
Examples of standard levels are water from a tap is normally 7.5, with bottled water being 7. This contrasts with sea water, which is 8, meaning it needs to be treated before drinking.
What is the Difference Between Clean Water and Drinking Water?
The main difference between clean water and drinking water is drinking water is suitable for human consumption whereas clean water is suitable for all other site activity. Our water tankers can provide both clean water and drinking water in bulk across the country.
This water can then be stored in a water tank on site and connected to suitable apparatus. We have a wide variety of water tanks, ranging from 1,000 litres to 30,000 litres of storage. This water is then loaded onto a tanker suitable for clean water only. The water pipes for these trailers are not WRAS (Water Regulation Advisory Scheme) approved. This means that the water that flows through these pipes is not fit for human consumption.
Drinking water, also known as potable water, is delivered in specially designed water tankers. These tankers are made from 316L Stainless Steel. The construction of these tankers makes them suitable for delivering food products. Stainless Steel 316 L is also recognised by WRAS.
There is a detailed process the tanker goes through before it leaves the depot to be filled. These processes include but are not limited to cleaning and chlorinating the tanker before use. Here at Tardis, we adhere to strict standards which mean the tanker and water will be fully tested before being dispatched to its destination.
When the operative reaches their destination there are a few checks that need to be carried out. The operative will need to make sure that there are suitable and safe means for drinking water storage. After all checks are complete and the load has been delivered, the operative will need to carry out the water tests again to make sure the water is safe for human consumption.
To make sure drinking water is suitable for human consumption, it must be tested every 24 hours. This is to make sure the water meets the British water standards BS8551 and BS8558.
What are the Uses for Clean Water and Drinking Water?
Drinking water is safe for human consumption and is used for the preparation of food. This service will be useful for construction sites, festivals and at a wide range of other events. This is because for these events you will need to provide drinking water that is fit for consumption.
Clean water is used for everything except for drinking. For example, clean water can be used for hand washing and toilet flushing. It could also be used for cleaning the site or filling a swimming pool. The versatility of this option makes it a great choice for events and construction sites.
