Who is a 220 000L water tank suitable for

Pioneer commonly recommends 220 000L water tanks for a domestic household of four or five people - in areas outside of Australia's capital cities - looking to make their water storage go a little bit further, in order to meet their needs for drinking water and household water storage, and perhaps also support a small garden.  The GT220 is Pioneer Water Tank's 220 000L water tank, with a gross capacity of 221,097L of rainwater storage.


For this reason, the GT220 is one of Pioneer Water Tanks most popular products, and is the first choice for many of Australians all across the country in each year, looking to ensure they have a reliable and long lasting water storage solution. Rainwater tanks upward of 200 000L are also popular amongst farmers and folk on cattle stations.


Many customers purchasing a rainwater tank are rural families with no access to mains water or town water - or are simply looking to no longer rely on it - which means it is important to have enough rainwater harvesting ability and a large enough water tank to meet your needs.


If you're looking to determine if a 220 000L steel water tank is suitable to service your home, you can consult our water storage calculator (below) to determine how much rainfall you can capture from your roof, and make sure to track of how much water your household is using.


The below table shows the dimensions and gross capacities of the GT220 - Pioneer's 220 000L water tank, as well as the GT200 and GT250 model water tanks, the sizes either side.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Pioneer Water Tanks have been Australia's leading manufacturer of 220,000L rainwater tanks for Australian farmers and families for over 30 years, and continue to lead the industry for innovation and quality.


All Pioneer Water Tanks - whether you're installing a 20,000L tank or 220,000L tank - are manufactured in Australia, from Australian Zincalume® or Colorbond® Steel, and Pioneer remains an Australian family owned business to this day.


The Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile is specially designed with water storage in mind, not only providing superior strength and durability, but also protecting your liner from the stretching and stress that can come with the filling and emptying of a regular corrugated wall panel.


Pioneer's 220,000L water tanks - along with the  wide range of Pioneer Water Tanks - come with our 20/20 Warranty, which is a 20 year conditional structural warranty as well as a 20 year conditional warranty against water leakage.

You Can Never Have Too Much Water

Water Catching and Usage Factors To Consider

Fire Reserve

This is a volume of water that is always readily available in the event of fighting fire.  Commonly this can be up to 20,000 litres.

Irrigation

When looking to irrigate, factors such as water source, harvesting capacity, and usage volume will all need to be considered.

Water Source

Harvesting water from a roof, filling up from a bore or dam will impact the size of tank that will be most optimal for you.

Harvesting Factors

The size of your roof catchment area, in addition to your annual rainfall will determine how much water you can harvest.

Domestic Usage Volume

Having an idea of what domestic functions you intend to connect to your tank and how often each will be used will be advantageous.

Total Volume

It's better to have water and not need it, than to need water and not have it.  It may pay to install a bigger tank to mitigate running out of water.

Water Tank Colours

Many people looking to install a 220 000 litre water tank for household water usage install the tanks next to or near their house, using their home and any nearby sheds or garages to capture the rainfall to fill their tank.


For this reason, the colour of a rainwater tank can be an important factor, and that is why Pioneer Water Tanks offer a range of standard and non-standard Colorbond® colours in addition to a traditional Zincalume® finish.


The range of colours Pioneer's 220 000L water tanks are available in can be seen below.
