Who is an 80 000L rainwater tank suitable for

Steel rainwater tanks around the 80 000L mark are often purchased by couples or individuals in areas with no access to mains water, or families in semi rural areas who are looking to take advantage of their roof catchment areas in order to reticulate a garden, or keep a swimming pool full. Pioneer's 80 000L water tank is the GT80 with a gross volume of 76,504 litres


This makes the GT80 a popular choice for many rural Australians in need of reliable household water storage and drinking water - however not quite as popular as the GT110, which only a few sizes up is the go to for most people looking for a rainwater tank.


Often those in need of a rainwater tank have little or no access to mains water, or are at the very least looking to reduce their reliance on it, making it very important to ensure that you have more than enough rainwater harvesting ability, and a large enough water tank for your needs. Thankfully Pioneer's suite of tank sizes comes in a wide enough range to meet all needs.


If you're looking to determine if an 80 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 80 000L water tank - the GT80 - as well as its two neighbouring water tank sizes the GT90 and GT60.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Pioneer Water Tanks have been manufacturing 80,000L rainwater tanks that Australian families can rely on for over 30 years, and continue to strive to remain at the forefront of innovation and quality in the industry.


Every rainwater tank sold by Pioneer Water Tanks - be they 80 000L or 280 000L - are madein Australia, from Australian Zincalume® or Colorbond® Steel, and Pioneer remains a 100% Australian family owned business.


The Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile is specially designed with water storage in mind, 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 80,000L 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.

Water Tank Colours

For many people in the market for an 80 000 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 80 000L water tank in can be seen below.
