Poly water tanks small storage capacity isn’t enough for the everyday user and as a result, customers end up paying too much and are left with the added hassle of maintaining not just one water tank but multiple. Pioneer Water Tanks use strong, durable and proven BlueScope steel for our water tanks and they represent fantastic value when considering a foundation to store your fresh water supply. When purchasing a poly water tank customers are often left with greater costs and multiple tanks. The reason for this is that poly tanks often store a maximum of 50,000L of water and the average person consumes 100,000L or more in a year.

Pioneer Water Tanks can save our valued customers money, with one steel water tank offering exceptional quality, strength and value for money. Pioneer Water Tanks also give customers additional peace of mind with a 20 year warranty included with all tank purchases.

Fire Season

Australia’s dry climate makes bushfire season a serious issue that customers need to consider when purchasing a water tank. Poly tanks are made of plastic and are unable to weather and sustain a fire as well as steel tanks. Pioneer’s Water Tanks have been fire tested by the Australian Government Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre. Pioneer Water Tanks are designed to maintain their structural integrity and retain water during and after exposure to a fire front.
