Ensuring that our wastewater is properly disposed of is the responsibility of each and every one of us. Fortunately, for most people, systems that are connected to mains sewage systems mean that we do not need to consider this. Some places, however, are not connected to mains wastewater systems, and this is where a septic tank system, cesspool, or silage tank is needed.
A silage tank is a tank that has an input but no output. It is a single-chambered tank that temporarily stores effluent but needs to be regularly emptied. Unlike a septic tank that allows for cleaned wastewater to drain into..
Whether you work cleaning cars, windows, in agriculture, or just enjoy a road trip in a caravan, the issue of transporting the water that you need around can be tricky. Water is not only heavy, but it also can slosh around and throw vehicles off balance through the sudden changes in placement of the weight, especially if the water is being transported over rough or uneven ground. This can be a very dangerous situation and a solution to this problem is needed.
As a solution to the safe and effective transportation of water issue, baffled water tanks have been designed.

If you use oil to heat your home one important consideration that you must always keep in mind is the lifespan of the oil tank in which it is stored. Ensuring that your oil is well protected is more than just about making sure that there is none wasted. Oil leaks can also be very damaging to the local environment and can also be extremely flammable. It is, therefore, vitally important that you are aware of the condition of your oil tank, do what you can to keep it in good condition, and replace it when it is needed.
Several factors are involved which can determine how long a steel oil tank ..
Some buildings in the UK use oil for activities such as heating or cooking, and usually the oil needs to be stored on site. The storage of oil needs to be carefully monitored. Oil is flammable, and therefore, great caution must be employed if you are going to store it – even in relatively small quantities. It is important that oil is protected both from outside risks, but also from leaking into the outside environment, and this is why on many occasions it is recommended that you store your oil in a bunded oil tank.
What is a Bunded Oil Tank?
There are generally two types of bunded oil ta..
Domestic water tanks are used to store water for a range of different uses including sometimes for drinking water, water to be heated, water used to flush toilets, or to store rainwater that has been harvested (collected). Leaking or escaped water can be damaging to its environment, and this is why the water tanks need to be strong and robust, protecting their contents from outside risks, damage, and leaks.
One of the best materials for making these water tanks from is a specific type of plastic known as UV polyethylene – or PE. The water tanks are usually treated so that they are not affec..
If you have a building that cannot be connected to the mains sewage system, then it is important that you look for an alternative method of taking wastewater and sewage away from it. One of the most effective ways of doing this is through a septic tank system. When you get a septic tank system, the wastewater and sewage are channelled away from the building and into a septic tank that is situated close by. Inside the septic tank, the waste is broken down by bacteria and separated into water and sludge. The water is then drained into a drainage field in the local area (only sewage treatment pla..
There are many different reasons why you might need to have a water tank at your property. One of the most common is to have somewhere to store water that has been collected from the rain, giving you an eco-friendly way to utilise natural resources. Rainwater harvesting systems usually comprise a drainage system alongside a sizable tank to keep the harvested rainwater in until it is used in the property.
Houses use high quantities of water every day for everything from washing clothes to toilet flushing, showering, to pet cleaning. This means that the tanks that you potentially need will ne..
There are several reasons why some homes need to have an oil tank for the storage of oil. It might be that your home is not connected to mains gas due to its location or you might even choose not to connect it to the mains. Whatever the reason, some people find themselves in a situation where they need to store large amounts of oil.
It is important that you get the storage of oil right, it is a big responsibility as it can not only be damaging to the local environment if it escapes the tank in any way, but it can also be a huge fire risk to people and property close by. Damaged tanks or lea..
Farmers and land managers have a duty to maintain the health of the environment for which they are responsible. This isn’t just about the fields, crops and grazing for livestock, it’s about making sure that onsite sewage and wastewater treatment facilities are non-polluting for waterways, wildlife and the countryside itself.
It’s not unusual for farms to be off the mains sewer system. By their very nature, farms are in remote locations, with lots of land. Without a mains sewer system, farmers need to make sure they are treating and disposing of their sewage in a way which is safe and lega..
When is a plastic bunded oil tank the right choice?
Around 1.6 million households in the UK aren’t connected to the national gas network. Generally, these households will use oil to heat their homes and water instead. This oil (usually kerosene) must be stored on your property, in a tank which adheres to the government’s oil storage regulations (Storing oil at your home or business - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
Oil storage tanks can be installed outside, inside or underground.
In commercial situations, heating oil may also be used to fuel machinery and furnaces, generate electricity or gener..
