Pioneer Steel Water Tanks

Over 30 years in business with ZERO structural failures.

From time to time our customers share with us "your competitors tank is thicker so, I'm thinking of going with them".  When it comes to buying a water tank this kind of thinking doesn't give you the full picture.  It doesn't take into account a number of other significant features that position Pioneer Water Tanks as the best value for money water tank on the market.

How Thick Are Pioneer Steel Water Tanks?

Whilst we acknowledge that some of our competitors water tanks have thicker steel than Pioneer Water Tanks, this is only up to a certain sizes and not relevant across our entire range of tanks. The table below illustrates exactly which tanks EXCEED the steel thickness of our competitors.


Pioneer Water Tanks have been specifically designed by our engineers to put the steel in our tanks where it is needed most.  The success of this engineering feat has been verified by our record of ZERO structural failures in over 30 years of business.
