Who is a 60 000L water tank suitable for

60 000L water tanks are the tank size most suitable for a single person's water storage, or for households looking to expand their water storage by harvesting water off of a shed, garage or similar structure. The GT60 is Pioneer's 60 000L model water tank, with a total gross capacity of 61,968L.


The GT60 is the one of the smaller sizes where a steel water tank starts to become more practical, and on occasion more affordable than a poly tank, particularly with the added fire protection a steel tank provides over a poly water tank.


Many people purchasing a rainwater tank are looking to use it for their household and drinking water supply, so it is important to ensure you have more than enough rainwater harvesting ability, and a large enough water tank size for your needs. 


If you are looking to be completely self sustainable, a tank larger than 60 000L - or two GT60s like in the photo above, depending on available space - might be better for your needs.


If you're looking to determine if a 60 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, and make sure to track of how much water your household is using.


The below table shows the dimensions and gross capacities of the GT60 - Pioneer's 60 000L water tank - as well as the GT50 and GT80 model water tanks.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

For more than 30 years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been supplying 60,000L round water tanks to families all across Australia, providing them with water storage they can rely on for the long term, whilst remaining at the forefront of innovation and quality in the industry.


All Pioneer Water Tanks - be they 60,000L water tanks or 260,000L water tanks - are made in Australia, from Australian Zincalume® or Colorbond® Steel, and Pioneer remains a 100% Australian family owned business. Our dealers - who can be found all across the country, forming the Pioneer Dealer Direct® Network - are also locally owned and operated family businesses, and work exclusively with Pioneer Water Tanks.


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


All of the 60,000L water tanks Pioneer manufactures 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.

All Pioneer Water Tanks come with a range of standard inclusions, as well as optional accessories that can be added on to the water tank at a later date.

Water Tank Colours

For many people in the market for a 60 000 litre water tank, they are looking to have the rainwater tank installed right next to their house, capturing the water that runs off the roof of their home - and potentially any nearby sheds or garages.


For this reason, the colour of your 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 you can have your 60 000L water tank in can be seen below.
