Small - Medium Range - 400-1000 litres

0800 999 6010
Small-Medium Range Tanks
Product Description:

With tank sizes ranging from 400 to 1000 litres (88 to 220 gallons) our small-to-medium, UK manufactured above ground tanks can be used in a wide range of applications. They are manufactured using a UV-stabilised and WRAS-approved* medium density polyethylene (MDPE) plastic material. All tanks are fitted with a removable lid.

A 1½" threaded outlet is supplied as standard (not fitted) so that you can decide if/where to use it, once the tank is in position. Other diameter fittings are available, of course. These tanks are supplied in a black finish as standard: other colours are available including natural, dark green and blue.

These tanks are suitable for potable water and are also used for rainwater harvesting, storing non-potable water, or collecting grey water, toilet waste and slurry. Typical applications are glamping huts, construction site accommodation and event industry units such as toilets, showers and catering stands. Baffled tanks will be suitable for vehicle-mounting - i.e. for the transportation of liquids e.g. for watering / spraying purposes.*WRAS stands for the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme.

NOTES:
Standard stock colour is black. Other available colours include natural, blue or bottle green (latter two colours subject to a 10% price uplift)

[1] Do not lift with liquid contents on board.
[2] Please note: tank sizes quoted are subject to a +/-3% variation.
[3] Standard outlet fitting provided is 1½". The outlet is not fitted, so that you have the flexibility to position it where required, or not use it.
      Other outlet sizes are available: 1" or 2" being the most popular. Outlet fittings allow you to connect to other equipment or to drain the tanks.
      Drain valves and linking pipes are also available, the latter to link tanks together.
[4] The dry weight is the non-packaged weight of the basic tank. Tanks will be palletised for shipment with a pallet distributor, not a parcel service.
      In use, each 1 litre of liquid equates to 1 KG in weight.
[5] WRAS-approved tanks will come supplied with non-vented lid and a Byelaw 30 Breather Kit (for England & Wales).
      Scottish customers will require a Byelaw 60 Breather Kit.
[6] PS-17131201 is supplied with 2 lids.
[7] Tanks with baffles will be suitable for truck-mounting - i.e. for the transportation of liquids e.g. for watering / spraying purposes.

Product Information

Why Plastic?

Plastic tanks will not corrode - no matter how long they are in use. Unsightly rust is a thing of the past
Plastic tanks are much lighter than steel tanks
A plastic tanks will give many years of service: it is UV-stabilised for a long-life. No single-use plastics here!
Plastic tanks reduce environmental impact: their low weight means they are cheaper to ship, minimising fuel use and emissions.
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

Technical Advantages

Large, vented access hatches make for simple filling or emptying AND easy cleansing and sanitising after use
Hatch allows easy access to mount submersible pumps (for example) inside the tank
Increase volume by connecting several tanks together using our simple Linking Kits
Small, domed tanks have moulded in "shoulders" for tank connections
Small-medium cylindrical tanks have pronounced two-step top on which pumps and pressure switches can be conveniently mounted
Baffled tanks are available for fitting vertically or horizontally, flat on the ground or even for transporting liquids
Rainwater harvesting kits available
Range of water and sewage pumps available as retrofit items.
Drain valves available for draining / isolating linked tanks from each other
Tanks are designed to be positioned beside or underneath toilet block, glamping pod etc. or inside a suitable cabinet
WRAS-approved tanks available in black

Applications

Glamping sites (shepherd's huts, lodges, glamping pods, garden offices)
Camp sites for potable water,
Catering vans, camper vans and caravans
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.
