OVERFLOW 150MM DIAMETER
Our 150mm diameter overflow connection and down piping is the largest in the market.
Designed to meet the Plumbing Industry Board’s requirements for an overflow greater than the infill rate of water means you avoid costly problems associated with a tank overflow.
Pioneer Water Tanks’ one-piece PVC wall connection prevents water coming into contact with any steel around the overflow penetration. The need to use any chemical based sealant is also eliminated to protect your potable water supply against possible contamination.
Pioneer Water Tanks’ modern and unique 8-80 V-LOCK® wall profile provides the strength of corrugated steel and maintains perfect support to the liner moulded to the inside of the tank wall.
The 8-80 V-LOCK® design maximises the strength of your tank to ensure it stays in shape when full or empty whilst minimising liner stress.
AQUALINER Fresh® is the name we’ve given to our patent pending tank liner containing SANITIZED® antimicrobial technology. No other tank company can offer this tank lining technology.
It’s also certified to Australian and International drinking water standards and it is 100% BPA-free. It’s a global breakthrough in clean water storage technology and it is only available from the leaders in water storage - Pioneer Water Tanks.
AQUALINER Fresh® DOUBLE SEAM WELD
Pioneer Water Tanks’ AQUALINER Fresh® is double seam welded for Australia’s tough conditions.
Our innovative double seam welded AQUALINER Fresh® provides the ultimate protection at liner joints, preventing leaks, drips, seepage or wicking of your precious water. Water seepage from your liner can encourage white ants or invasive roots, so insist on a double seam welded liner.
FULLY CONCEALED BOLTS
Fully concealed structural bolts provide you with a smooth and tamper-free panel joint. These unique vertical seams reinforce the strength of the tank and increase the integrity of your water tank.
With hundreds of tonnes of water to contain, Pioneer’s engineer-certified bolt strips provide the ultimate strong and safe panel joint.
SWIVEL FOOT ROOF CONNECTION
The exclusive heavy duty Pioneer Water Tank roof connects to the body of the tank through a unique swivel foot roof connector and high-tensile bolts.
Offering safe and reliable load resistance and tie-down of the roof means you don’t have to worry about the performance of your tank roof in even the most extreme conditions.
TEK SCREW CLASS 4
Tek screws are used to fasten the roof sheets to the roof structure and there are four classes of corrosion resistance, with Class 4 being the highest resistance.
Every tek screw on your Pioneer Water Tank are Class 4. This provides you with maximum corrosion resistance and longest life performance.
Recommended when clean, fine sand is difficult to source and for added protection of the liner against damage from sharp objects such as stones or rocks.
Dirt, dust, spiders and all sorts of insects and vermin like to find places to live.
Superseal is a closed cell protective foam which fills the gaps between your roof sheets and the tank wall to protect your clean water from external sources of contamination.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Are your tanks suitable for irrigation purposes?
Yes, our water tanks manufactured and built for all sorts of applications and they will handle the rigours of irrigation.
Do you offer tanks for my home on a farm?
Yes, we can provide you with a water tank that has facilities ready to take on water harvested off a roof.
What setup do you recommend for an irrigation tank?
If you are taking water from a dam or bore, we recommend (where possible) that you install your inlet at the bottom wall of your water tank.
It might seem unusual but the best water tank performance comes from bottom inlets. If you water is coming from a roof we recommend the standard roof lead filter basket.
Why is a bottom inlet helpful?
Top inlets create tiny wave actions on the water service when water enters the tank and sometimes water can splash into the roof area. If you can, you should avoid this.
What other steps should I consider with a bottom inlet?
When you fill from a bottom inlet you should be pushing into a volume of water, water levels simply rise and fall, and there’s no splashing. You might be thinking there’s a lot of water inside pushing back into your inlet, that’s not the case.
When you send water to the top of a two-metre water tank you have two metres of head pressure. With this in mind, if the water level inside your tank is sitting at one metre you have one metre of head pressure, two metres equals two metres of head pressure and so on.
Do you have a gutter system for your tank?
No. In more than 30 years of trading, we have come across only a small number of people who have insufficient roof area to collect water. If you’re not sure, call our consultant for advice.
What features come with my water tank?
We provide a full suite of features; AQUALINER FRESH® tank liner, double fusion-welded liner seams, adaptive swivel foot roof truss connector, roof access hatch, external hook on ladder, 80mm overflow, 80mm outlet and valve (multiple if required), and 50mm inlet.
