Sanitation for Off-Grid and Temporary Glampsites

Glampsite WCNew to the glamping market is a product allowing flushing toilets to the most remote, temporary or off grid glampsites. Initially developed for the construction industry, the Tuff Tank waste storage tank from Plastic Solutions can be positioned under a shepherds hut or other glamping unit, wash or WC cabin to collect waste for removal by local septic tank emptying services.

“Although the adverts for glamping tend to concentrate on the provision of decent beds, heating and lighting, in the background there is often another important feature – decent sanitation,” says Jon Trelfa, general manager at Plastic Solutions. “That means hot and cold running water and, in particular, private and preferably flushing toilets.

“That immediately causes many permanent and event-specific glampsites a problem. While mains water is a possibility, mains sewers are probably not. One approach might be to invest in some major groundwork development but this is likely to incur planning permission and expense. A Tuff Tank can be easily installed to capture waste and allow all the home comforts guests expect.”

The portable sanitation products from Plastic Solutions include water tanks in a variety of sizes, pumps to transport the water, portable recirculating flush toilets and effluent tanks to support the use of flush lavatories. These can be bought by site owners for permanent or semi-permanent installation and are also available from hire companies to cater for the needs of one-off or irregular events. 0800 334 5742 / www.plasticsol.com
