Ashford Water Storage Challenges

Whilst rainfall is a welcome sight across this dry nation of ours, changing climate causing heavy storms - and modern infrastructure such as bitumen and concrete - often results in the build-up of water and flash flooding, which can cause harm to property and the ecosystem.

A rainwater tank, along with adequate guttering can help prevent some of this water from entering streets and stormwater systems, helping reduce the risk of stormwater runoff.

If a downpour deposits 100mm of rainfall in Ashford 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.

Australia is famous for its long hot summers, but sadly this leaves us susceptible to regular bushfires and Ashford is no exception. While much of the area's rainfall does fall in the summer months, this results in lush grasses that can easily burn on hotter days.

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

Notably, unlike the other tanks - which either melted or split - the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water even after a fire front, which could prove essential to firefighting 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 suitable for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

The Ashford Climate

Ashford, like most of the North West Slopes features a subtropical climate with rainfall peaking in the summer months, with around 758 mm falling annually.

The town is located on the boundary region between the cool, wet Northern Tablelands and the hot, dry North West Slopes lending it the climate characteristics of both regions.

Ashford is a small community which serves as the hub of a large agricultural area, an active retirement community, and regional tourism. Today, the surrounding areas are used for sheep and cattle farming.

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.

Utilising Sanitized ® technology, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner has the antibacterial qualities of silver woven into the tank liner.

The industry-leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that form the strongest, cleanest and most technologically advanced water tank liner on the market.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

The Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile, also exclusive to Pioneer Water Tanks, has been developed with the sole purpose of water storage.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to safeguard the tank liner, by protecting against stretching and wear, and the sheets are engineered to the ideal thickness for each panel, meaning we put the steel where it's needed most.

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

Australian made water tanks - Ashford local service

Pioneer Water Tanks is able to provide truly local service to all Australians, no matter where they are based, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than 50 experienced water tank dealers.

Pioneer Water Tanks is proud to partner with Rohan Fergusson Plumbing in Ashford, a qualified tank installer who are able to assist with all your water storage needs.

It is essential that our water tank dealers are experts in water tank assembly, as a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Ashford Historical Fact

"Frazer's Creek" Post Office was established in 1853 and renamed Ashford in 1863. The first police station was opened in 1864 and the first school in 1868.

Fred Ward - a bushranger known as Captain Thunderbolt - rode in the area in 1867. Primary industries in the town over the years included tobacco farming and a local coal mine though each of these have ceased.
