THE PROBLEM

During the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires, Heidi Wade’s property in East Lynne NSW was one of over 3,000 properties impacted by the devastation.


Her family lost all their out-buildings,including their granny flat, two stables and two sheds. Their two plastic/fibro water tanks were totally destroyed, and the two concrete tanks were severely damaged, along with the water pumps and piping to the house.


“Our power supply was damaged and a lot of our fencing; I actually do not know how the house survived as it was blackened on one side where the water pumps and tanks were,” reflects Heidi.

“What drew me to Pioneer Water Tanks was actually my friends–they have one of the tanks and had excellent things to say about the brand and quality.

“We were unable to return home for three months due to no power or water.”


“We did get a really small tank to get by with until we could get a larger one installed.


When considering new water storage options at the time of re-building, Heidi looked at a variety of brands that would suit her property and future threats of bushfires.


“What drew me to Pioneer Water Tanks was actually my friends–they have one of the tanks and had excellent things to say about the brand and quality.


“It looks great on their property, and we thought the price was very good.”

THE SOLUTION

Heidi’s local company from the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network® was NSW Water Tanks. Owner Operator Joel Flood processed the quote and organised installation of a GT110 (110,000L). 


“We wanted a larger tank than our previous so we wouldn’t run out of water,” says Heidi.


“I can’t wait for it to be fully connected to see the full effect of the water storage – it’ll be nice to have a large full tank of fresh rainwater.

Heidi's property was devastated by bushfire, but has now recovered, and has access to clean water again thanks to Pioneer Water Tanks.

“The Pioneer staff and NSW Water Tanks installation team were all very accommodating, helpful and friendly – plus, the tank looks great!” 

 

Heidi says the Pioneer tank looks excellent and matches their new shed. All their friends, family and neighbours report they’re very impressed with the addition.
