Many of these tanks are WRAS-approved (Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations) so that they are suitable for holding potable, drinking water. Many will be suitable for all applications, from toilet waste water to potable water and some are designed for rainwater harvesting and non-potable water. They are designed aas cylindersdesign allows it to be positioned alongside or underneath site accommodation, glamping huts and event industry equipment such as toilets, showers and catering units.

Product Information

Deliver and position plastic tanks with minimal effort. Reposition to your heart's content.
Plastic tanks are easy to clean and maintain a hygienic image

Mobile pet grooming, mobile bin cleaning, mobile window cleaning, mobile car valeting.

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 some 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 short-term use only
you have units built off the ground (e.g. shepherd’s huts) and you envisage occasionally moving
you will not be able to install underground septic tanks
you need to capture chemical toilet waste

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. 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. 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, for example, 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. Septic tanks can be installed as an alternative solution but you will need to consult and apply for planning permission and be ready for groundworks, soakaway to a drain field (for which a “percolation test will be required) and ongoing maintenance charges.

Should we be using outside toilets?

The question of going back to the old outside toilet may provoke a definite NO! But is that viewpoint changing?
