Andrew and Amanda Sure Up Their Water Storage

Andrew & Amanda from Bornholm, Western Australia 

THE PROBLEM

Andrew and Amanda live on a 50-acre property in Bornholm, Western Australia, located in The Great Southern Region between Albany and Denmark. 

 

The pair have been using a 50,000L concrete water tank for their household consumption, but in 2021 they decided it was time for an upgrade. 

 

“We wanted to have a more secure sufficient supply of water given how precious it is,” reflects Andrew. 

“We don’t want to worry we’ll run out of water when the kids or guests come to stay, especially in the summer months.” 

 

Andrew says there seem to be a lot of folks in the region upgrading from concrete to steel tanks. 

 

“Pioneer is a big name down here. We called around a got a few quotes, and the conversation that sold me was with Linda from The Tankman Mount Barker.”

"It’s (COLORBOND® steel) used in a lot of different applications here in WA, generally in all types of construction, and it just made sense for the water tank to be steel as well"

THE PROBLEM

“It was really because of Linda that we chose Tankman,” says Andrew. 

 

“Working with her has been a joy, she’s fantastic – she could do anything!” 

 

He also says Pioneer’s use of COLORBOND® steel was a big seller. 

 

“It’s used in a lot of different applications here in WA, generally in all types of construction, and it just made sense for the water tank to be steel as well. 

 

“It’s a more durable solution for storing water and it will hopefully last a very long time, and the profile on the landscape to me looks a lot better aesthetically than the old concrete tank.” 

The couple purchased a GT130 (130,000L) which was installed by The Tankman crew in October 2021. 

 

“Wes came out to the property ahead of installation to discuss the location and capacity, and he confirmed my initial thoughts with Linda that we’re working with the right team,” he says. 

 

“The installation team was brilliant, very efficient.”
