Our eminent effluent experts (including the Wizard of Waste, Mr. Jon Trelfa) first sat down to come up with a list of the key comparison criteria. They thought about their own experience of moving, using and cleaning waste tanks, and consulted a variety of clients too.
After filtering out a number of unsuitable or silly suggestions (ability to be used as a base for the world's largest parasol and suitability as a pontoon for a raft race were no-no's) the panel came up with 16 of the most important characteristics of a good waste tank. We are talking here about factors such as: weight, portability, ease of emptying and availability.
The next task was to rank plastic and steel tanks against the criteria, which is where the rout started.
This wasn't a game of two halves, there was no late goal in time added on to increase the suspense and the plucky loser didn't even manage a consolation goal.
Plastic tanks were in the ascendancy all over the pitch.
The list goes on.
As plastic effluent tanks take the championship trophy we'll be waving bye-bye to all of those metal tanks as they succumb to corrosion and end their days in sanitation yards around the country.
