Canberra Water Tanks

For over thirty years now, Pioneer Water Tanks have been manufacturing and designing water tanks Canberra can depend on. People of Canberra understand that they can feel confident, knowing they have the backing and support of Australia's number 1 big tank company.


Although many who live outside the territory hold the belief that the ACT is a verdant land of plentiful rains, folks in the area know better, and are mindful of their water storage needs.


Canberra is the capital city of Australia. Founded following the federation of the colonies of Australia as the seat of government for the new nation, it is Australia's largest inland city and the eighth-largest city overall. Unusual among Australian cities, it is an entirely planned city. The city is located at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory at the northern tip of the Australian Alps, the country's highest mountain range.

Water Tank Sizes

Pioneer's water tank sizes are available in a wide range, with residential and rural tanks available from 12kl to 500kl, and the commercial and industrial tanks available in up to a whopping 3 million litres.


Regardless of what project you are about to undertake, Pioneer Water Tanks will have a water tank that's right for you in regards to both size and quality.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer.

Bushfire preparation

Despite being a cool and green part of the country, the ACT is also vulnerable to bushfires in the hot, dry summer months, as the region receives much less rainfall than most people think, leaving vegetation dry and vulnerable to wildfires.


Smoke haze became synonymous with the 2019/2020 Australian summer, and on 1 January 2020, Canberra had the worst air quality of any major city in the world, as fires both in and outside of the territory caused comprehensive damage.


As well as having a bushfire action plan, an important way to plan for the dry summer months is to ensure that you have sufficient water storage to help protect you from the threat of fire, and a Pioneer Water Tank helps provide that protection.


Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve in your tank, to ensure it can be used for both household water storage and fire protection.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

When the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in conjunction with the CSIRO carried out bushfire simulations on a range of water tanks, a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up best.


Importantly, 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 crucial to firefighting efforts.


While a water tank will still prove adequate for watering gardens or lawns, if it has been exposed to fire, it is highly recommended that you get the tank water tested as soon as possible to make sure that it is still safe for household use.

Canberra Water Storage Challenges

Whilst rainfall is a welcome sight across this dry nation of ours, changing weather conditions leading to heavy storms, and modern infrastructure like bitumen and concrete, often leads to the build-up of water and flash flooding, which can cause damage to property and the environment.


Thanks to the amount of rainwater that can be collected from a roof with adequate guttering, installing a rainwater tank can help alleviate some of the stress on stormwater systems.


If a storm deposits 100mm of rainfall in Canberra 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.

The Canberra Climate

Canberra has an oceanic climate. In January the average high is approximately 28°C, whilst in July the average high drops to approximately 11 °C.


Frost is common in the winter months. Snow is rare in the CBD due to being on the eastern side of the range, but the surrounding areas get annual snowfall through winter and often the snow-capped Brindabella Range can be seen from the CBD.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference.

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 qualities of silver woven into the tank liner.


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

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

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


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


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

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 expert water tank dealers.

Canberra Historical Fact

Before European settlement, the area in which Canberra would eventually be constructed was seasonally inhabited by Indigenous Australians.


Anthropologist Norman Tindale suggested the principal group occupying the region were the Ngunnawal people, while the Ngarigo lived immediately to the south of the ACT, the Wandandian to the east, the Walgulu also to the south, Gandangara people to the north and Wiradjuri to the north-west.
