Need to extend waste collection capacity? No problem...!
From January 2019 the Tuff Tank has been available in three main volumes:
(500 gallons / 2,273 litres)
(750 gallons / 3,410 litres)
(1000 gallons / 4,546 litres)
The flat tank range starts with the Mini Tuff Tank
(165-gallons / 725 litres)
But, what if you need more capacity? Our simple Linking Kits are the answer
We have built in the functionality, which allows you to link and unlink our plastic tanks to create exactly the waste volume you need, job by job, site by site. We can convert tanks for you before they leave our factory, but the design is so simple that you can convert them yourself: the connections are made through 2" brass inserts, 4 of which which come pre-moulded into each Tuff Tank. Just drill a 2" hole in the right spot, connect the tank adaptors, connect the linking hose and you'll be ready for action. Each kit contains just five components. Consult the video below or download the Linking Tuff Tank Data Sheet for more details.
Side-by-side and Nose-to-tail combinations
You can link tanks side-by-side (landscape orientation) or nose-to-tail (portrait orientation) - or a combination of both, you choose.
And there are more benefits: once your contract or event has finished, the tanks quickly become easily movable, 'stand-alone' tanks again. Simply have them emptied, remove the linking hose, attach dust caps to the tanks and they are ready for individual use again. Result: higher utilisation and flexibility!
And the same practicality is available with the Mini Tuff Tank too. It has 2 x 2" brass inserts moulded into each tank. Side-by-side and nose-to-tail linking kits are available to link these tanks too.
Linking is simple - just connect the pipework
Lay tank flat and ensure it is empty. You will be making a hole through the skin of the tank!
To convert each tank, remove the red caps to reveal the 52mm brass inserts (2 at each end).
Visualise how you want the linking kit to work and select the appropriate inserts you wish to convert (either for side-by side or nose-to-tail linking). NOTE: The grey plastic exposed once red cap is removed is the wall of the tank and will need to be holed (drilled out) to allow the tank contents to flow through.
Use a 51mm hole saw to drill through the centre of the port, inside the brass threaded insert.
Screw the 50mm male threaded tank adaptor into the brass insert. For best results use PTFE tape to create a watertight seal.
Connect the linking pipe. NOTE: When tanks are not linked, seal the holes using the 50mm dust caps, ensuring that the locking rings are folded over securely. Your tank will now work as a standalone tank.
You must ensure that linking pipes are kept fully extended and straight.
Also ensure that fittings and link pipes are perpendicular to the tank to which they are attached.
"Why struggle to specify, fabricate, purchase, load and move a huge steel tank when our plastic tanks can be adapted and linked together quickly and easily using a Linking Kit?"

Create chains of 2 or more tanks where waste volumes are high. Linking allows any capacity to be met
Linking allows hire companies to offer flexible waste solutions whilst only having to keep one size tank in stock
Transport and set up of larger capacities is simple
Linking of tanks on site takes seconds with the easy 5-piece linking kit which uses ubiquitous camlock adaptors
Connect tanks side-to-side or nose-to-tail depending on site conditions
