Armidale Water Storage Challenges

In a nation as dry as Australia, rain of any kind is often a refreshing sight, however modern infrastructure like roads and footpaths, along with changing weather conditions, can often result in flash flooding thanks to stormwater runoff, which can cause considerable damage.

Setting up a rainwater tank and adequate guttering can help alleviate struggling stormwater systems from some of the rainfall, and help to decrease the risk of flash flooding.

If a downpour deposits 100mm of rainfall in Armidale in a 24-hour period, just 100 homes equipped with water tanks can keep 2 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.

Bushfire e-book

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

Unfortunately, the long hot summers in Armidale leave it, like much of Australia, prone to widespread bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Armidale's rainfall falls in the summer months, this results in lush grasses that can easily burn on hotter days.

The CSIRO undertook bushfire simulation tests on water tanks in partnership with the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC, and the results showed that a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up better than the competition.

All other tanks tested either melted or cracked, causing them to lose valuable water, however, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water after being exposed to the full 30-minute fire front, which could prove vital to fire fighting efforts.

If your water tank has been exposed to fire, it is important to ensure that you get your water tested as soon as possible to ensure that it is safe for food preparation or drinking. The water would, however, still be suited for purposes such as watering gardens or yards.

The Armidale Climate

Armidale has a subtropical highland climate, and its elevation gives it a milder climate than most of northern New South Wales. Summers are warm and rainy, while winters are long and cool, with many frosty nights.


In Armidale, the presence of four distinct seasons makes it climatically unlike much of inland Australia; hence, the "New England" moniker and the autumn colours are notable features of the city. Armidale experiences around 750mm of rainfall annually.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference.

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner.

Proven to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in your water tank, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner available on the market, and a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive.

The natural antimicrobial qualities of silver and Sanitized ® technology are woven into the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner.

This is an industry-leading product, made up of five engineered layers, coming together to produce the most scientifically advanced, cleanest and most durable water tank liner available today.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

Designed for sturdiness and the sole purpose of water storage, the Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile is also a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive.

This V-Lock panel profile is designed not only for the strength and durability of the tank wall itself by engineering the sheets to the ideal thickness for each panel, but also to protect the tank liner, protecting against stretching and wear as the tank fills and empties.

It's a design so good, that it won an Australian Design Award for its superior strength and internal support, along with its aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Armidale local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is comprised of over fifty water tank dealers across the country, meaning we can offer truly local service to all Australians.

In Armidale, we are proud to be partnered with Rohan Fergusson Plumbing, who are able to help with all your water storage needs.

We make sure that our dealers are of the highest quality, as we know that a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Armidale Historical Fact

The traditional owners of the land of Armidale are the Anēwan Peoples, whose traditional lands measured some 3,200 square miles, spreading over the New England tableland from Moree, Guyra and Ben Lomond south to Uralla walcha and the Moonbi Range.


British pastoralists first entered the region in the early 1830s, following the earlier exploration of the area by John Oxley. Oxley recommended the region for grazing, and soon squatters established large leaseholds in the locality.


Although it does not lie between the two major cities of Sydney and Melbourne, a site just to the south of Armidale was, in the early 1900s, considered as a potential site for Australia's federal capital. Some saw its northerly location as better suited to all three eastern mainland states, including Queensland.
