The average Australian uses somewhere around 120 000L of water a year, but does that mean you need 120 000L sized water tank for each person in your home? Thankfully the answer to that question is no, as this number is based mostly on suburban figures, where the vast majority of water is used on irrigation and toilet flushing, and the typical rural home uses much less water than this.
We estimate that the average rural home uses needs about 30 000L of water per person, per year, and if you're relying on that alone, a rainwater tank that exceeds this figure would be sufficient. Of course your ability to harvest rainwater is also heavily dependent on your annual rainfall.
Poly Water Tanks typically only come in sizes of up to 50 000L, which typically isn't enough water supply for any more than two people with no access to mains water supply.
Pioneer's Steel Water Tank Sizes range from our smaller GT10 which comes in at 12 200L all the way through to our GT500 which has a water storage capacity of 500 000L. Larger or more specific water storage facilities for commercial or industrial applications can also be quoted to order.
Whilst the answer to this is entirely dependent on what size water tank you order, a safe rule of thumb would be to ensure a space 3m wider than the diameter of your desired water tank. This ensures comfortable room for the required 1m on all sides for the pad, and ensures there will be no difficulties at the time of installation.
