The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

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

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

The design was deemed so good, in terms of both structural integrity and aesthetic appeal, it won an Australian Design Award.

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner.

The Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the only antimicrobial tank liner available on the market today, and is proven to inhibit the growth of algae and bacteria in your water tank.

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

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

The Axedale Climate

Axedale has a relatively dry temperate climate with warm to hot summers and cool to cold winters and lies on a humid subtropical/semi-arid transitional climate zone.


The mean maximum temperature in January 28.7 °C, although temperatures above 35 °C are commonly reached. The mean minimum temperature in July is 3.5 °C and temperatures below 0 °C are recorded 28 nights per year on average. 


Most of Axedale's 582.1 millimetres or annual rainfall falls between May and September. 

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation 

Australia is famous across the globe for its long hot summers, and outside of the uninhabitable Antarctica, is the driest continent on the planet. Pairing this with the way many Australian plants behave, much of Victoria is vulnerable to large scale wildfires.

With far-reaching green drought across the state, Victoria is struck by the worst of the bushfire seasons far too often for locals to underestimate the threat posed by bushfires.

An important way to get ready for the drier summer months is to make sure that you not only have a bushfire action plan but also that you have appropriate water storage to help you and emergency services protect against the threat of fire.

In order to ensure your water tank can be used for the purposes of both household or property water storage, and fire protection, Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve.

The best performed water tank in bushfire conditions

The CSIRO conducted 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 stood up better than the competition.

All other tanks evaluated either melted or split, causing them to shed precious 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 suitable for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

Axedale Water Storage Challenges

In a nation that is known for being as dry as Australia, it is not a surprise that the majority of people take delight at the idea of rainfall, however changing climate conditions that lead to unpredictable storms, alongside modern infrastructure such as roads and footpaths can bring about stormwater runoff and flash flooding.

Installing a rainwater tank and sufficient guttering can help alleviate struggling stormwater systems from some of the rainfall, and aid in decreasing the likelihood of flash flooding.

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

Axedale Historical Fact

The Post Office opened on 21 April 1862. The town was served by the Axedale railway station on the Heathcote railway line from 1888 until 1941.


The town was the end point of the O'Keefe Rail Trail from Bendigo along the former railway reservation. In 2015, work was completed on extending the rail trail from Axedale to Heathcote. As part of the Campaspe River crossing, an underpass for the Rail Trail was also built under the McIvor Highway.
