Who is a 250 000L water tank suitable for

Water Tanks 250 000L in size are often found on hobby farms or cattle stations, and are quite large steel water tanks, however, they are also often used by rural families with high demands for water usage - Pioneer typically recommends a 250 000L steel water tank for families of five or six people.


Despite being a very large water tank - and as such a significant investment 250 000L water tanks are one of Pioneer Water tanks most popular models, used by people for their main water source for household supply, as well as drinking water and watering gardens during drier periods.


It is more than likely that someone purchasing a rainwater tank as large as 250 000L will be relying on their water tank to provide their entire household water supply, as they have no access to mains water or town water. This makes it very important that your tank size is adequate to meet or exceed your needs.


To help you to determine if a 250 000L steel water tank is suitable for you, you can consult our water storage calculator (below) to determine how much rainfall you can capture from your roof. It is also a good idea keep a track of how much water your household is using on average, to determine your total supply requirements.


Below you will find the dimensions of the GT250 - Pioneer's 250 000L water storage tank - as well as the GT280 and GT220, the two closest sizes to the 250 000L option.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Pioneer Water Tanks has been manufacturing water tanks that Australians can rely on for over 30 years, and continue to remain at the forefront of the market in terms of both innovation and quality.


Whether you need a 250,000L water tank or a 50,000L water tank, every water tank sold by Pioneer Water Tanks and our network of dealers across the country is manufactured in Australia from Australian Zincalume® or Colorbond® Steel. Pioneer Water Tanks remains an Australian owned and operated company to this day.


Pioneer Water Tanks tank wall profile - the Pioneer V-Lock® - was designed specifically for water storage, providing superior strength and durability, as well as protecting your liner from the stretching and stress that can come with the filling and emptying of a regular corrugated wall panel.


Every water tank in Pioneer's rural GT range comes 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

The site of a 250 000 litre water tank is often located near a house or shed, where they are able to make the most of these large water harvesting areas, meaning that they are often seen as an extension of the home.
