750 Gallon Flat Tank
Product Description:

The Flat-Tank-750 is our mid-range, flat, above ground, waste holding tank from our market-leading products.

It is principally designed to collect grey and black waste from all sites with no access to a mains sewer connection. Its flat "slide under" design allows it to be positioned above ground, alongside or tucked underneath glamping pods, shepherds' huts, toilet blocks, showers - and much more. Even if your glamping units are truly "off grid" and miles from civilisation or mains services, this tank will provide the solution you need. Want to move your units to a different location next year? No problem: the Flat-Tank-750 will give you that flexibility: simply empty it and move it. Four able-bodied people will easily manage it by hand.

At 690mm tall, weighing in at 180 KGs and designed for an outdoor life, this tank offers a low-environmental impact solution, especially in sensitive sites where you cannot - or don't want to - bury a tank. It is packed with features and a range of options that will allow you the flexibility to adapt as your site or business changes.  With its simple linking kit options and range of technical advantages, the Flat-Tank-750 is a choice product to capture effluent, liquid waste and sewage.

When and Why to Use

WHEN AND WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE OUR PLASTIC TANKS TO COLLECT LIQUID WASTE

Our plastic, above ground effluent tanks will be suitable for many glamping applications and sites, but not all, we accept that. Our flat, slide under, low environmental impact tanks will be perfect for a range of applications where:

the glamping pod is nowhere near a mains sewer
you have planning permission for limited duration or short-term use only
you cannot gain planning permission for an underground tank solution: SSSI, nearby water course, tree roots, high water table
you have units built off the ground (e.g. shepherd’s huts / tree house) and / or you envisage moving locations as your business develops
you will not be able to install or wish to avoid the cost of installing an underground septic tank, sewage treatment plant, reed bed etc
you have several glamping units too far apart to connect to mains sewer and wish to reduce the overall cost (separate underground tanks AND groundworks expense)
you need to capture chemical toilet waste, which is prohibited from entering the mains or septic tank systems

Our robust, plastic effluent tanks solve many issues when capturing liquid waste: they are an excellent off grid solution.

Lifespan and Repairs

The oldest tanks we have supplied date back to 2010 and are still going strong. Initially supplied to the rental industry, they experience frequent loading, unloading and positioning activity: a challenging life. The product is rotationally moulded as a one-piece construction from UV-stabilised medium density polyethylene (MDPE) in a ribbed design for added strength. MDPE is particularly suitable for this application as it copes with temperature fluctuations, absorbs knocks, does not absorb smell from the (waste) contents and is easily cleaned. The product rating is UV8 - 8000 hours of direct sunlight in the northern European climate: the product spends most of its life tucked away underneath its toilet block, shower or washroom. Repairs are rarely needed, but in the unfortunate event of damage, most repairs are readily carried out with a plastic welding tool, similar to a soldering iron.

Smells and Waste Levels

SMELLS - WASTE LEVELS - ELSAN® TIPPING POINTS

We supply a range of products ideal for large plastic or effluent tanks.

Recirc HD2 Clear is an all-round sanitiser and maintenance liquid additive, which kills bacteria, removes residues and cleanses the insides of tanks to reduce / eradicate unpleasant odours.  This formaldehyde-free product has a pleasant berry perfume and is used in low concentrations (2-5 litres) as the tank is being used and/or as part of your yearly maintenance schedule, in a higher concentration (10 litres)

For a different solution, we also supply a breather kit which creates a flue effect and pulls air from the tank at a 3m height.

To control the waste tipped into holding tanks from portable, chemical toilets we offer an Elsan® Tipping Point
Waste levels can be controlled by visual check or by using a level alarm such as our Apollo Alarm

Septic Tanks or Main Sewage

WHEN YOU MIGHT USE SEPTIC TANKS OR MAINS SEWAGE?

Holiday parks specifically purpose-designed and/or glamping sites near to a mains sewer will readily be able to connect up to the waste outlets from glamping units.

For smaller sites, large underground storage tanks, septic tanks, sewage treatment plants and/or reed beds are an available option but must be sized appropriately to fit the "population / waste volume" expected and allow an extra fail-safe capacity. You will need to consult an expert on the correct solution for your application and apply for planning permission. Be prepared for a due planning process and ongoing maintenance charges.
