Water Storage

Your Second Most Precious Resource

Aquabot Pioneer Water Tanks mascot

My parents didn’t know what they needed with regard to rainwater tanks. Pioneer came out and did a free assessment and let them know that they didn’t need another tank. They were very helpful the whole way. You can’t put a price on integrity.

You Can Never Have Too Much Water

Water Catching and Usage Factors To Consider

Fire Reserve

This is a volume of water that is always readily available in the event of fighting fire.  Commonly this can be up to 20,000 litres.

Irrigation

When looking to irrigate, factors such as water source, harvesting capacity, and usage volume will all need to be considered.

Water Source

Harvesting water from a roof, filling up from a bore or dam will impact the size of tank that will be most optimal for you.

Harvesting Factors

The size of your roof catchment area, in addition to your annual rainfall will determine how much water you can harvest.

Domestic Usage Volume

Having an idea of what domestic functions you intend to connect to your tank and how often each will be used will be advantageous.

Total Volume

It's better to have water and not need it, than to need water and not have it.  It may pay to install a bigger tank to mitigate running out of water.

Healthy. Fresh.

All Pioneer Water Tanks include our world first antimicrobial water tank liner, to keep your water fresher for longer.

sanitized

Aqualiner FRESH® with Sanitized® technology utilises the natural antibacterial properties of silver - combating bacteria development for cleaner, fresher water.

Five specific layers, each with an individual purpose

Pioneer V-LOCK®

Saving Your Tank Liner

A feat of engineering excellence, the Pioneer V-LOCK® wall profile provides superior internal support for the tank liner.

Liner Damage in Other Tanks

In other rainwater tanks, the water tank liner is stretched into the deep corrugations in the tank wall amid each water level cycle.

Over the course of time, the stresses inflicted by the water pressure and repetitive cycling lead to the mechanical failure of the tank liner.

The Superior V-Lock Design

The Pioneer V-Lock profile has much flatter corrugations. Because of this, when the liner is pressed up against these flatter areas in the course of water cycling, it is unable to be flexed and stressed to the same level.

This signifies that thanks to the V-Lock, the liner – like the rest of the tank – is able to last longer.

Wet or Dry Rainwater Harvesting Systems

Wet systems incorporate an underground structure of pipes that transfer water harvested off the roof into your water tank.

Dry systems are more direct, with the harvested water being carried directly into the tank from your roof.

Smart. Clean & Effective Gutter System

Catch water directly from your tank roof

Avoid debris and contamination caused by gutter devices; harvest up to 25% of your tank storage capacity with Smart Water Savers - exclusive to Pioneer Water Tanks.
