Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer.

Bushfire preparation

Unfortunately the long hot dry seasons in Childers leave it, similar to much of Australia, vulnerable to wide-spread bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Childers' rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often leads to long grasses which ignite easily.

Fire has long been a recognised threat in Queensland, and the Queensland Fire Service was born in 1860, and the first firefighters were employed in the state in 1889. The first fire legislation - the Act to Prevent the Careless Use of Fire 1865 - was enacted some 35 years before federation.

In addition to having a bushfire action plan, a key way to get ready for the drier months is to be certain that you have enough water storage to help protect you from the risk posed by fire, and a Pioneer Water Tank helps provide that protection.

A steel water tank can be used as both fire protection and water storage for the home, and Pioneer also offers a fire reserve option for your water tank if needed.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

A Pioneer Water Tank performed better than the competition in bushfire simulation when testing was performed by the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in partnership with the CSIRO.

After 30 minutes of submersion in flame, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water, a crucial characteristic for firefighting efforts, while the other tanks put to the test either melted or split, causing their water to be partly or fully lost.

After a fire front has passed, the water in your tank may still be used for non-consumptive uses, like watering your gardens, however, it is highly recommended to get your water tested as soon as possible to make sure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.

Childers Water Storage Challenges

While quite a few people across our dry nation delight in the sight of rain, changing weather conditions, paired with modern infrastructure have led to increasing cases of stormwater runoff and flash flooding.

A rainwater tank, together with adequate guttering can help prevent some of this water from entering streets and stormwater systems, assisting to lower the risk of stormwater runoff.

If we suppose the average roof in Childers is 200m2, then in the case of a weather event that dropped 100mm of rainfall, it would only need 100 homes to have installed rainwater tanks to keep over 2 million litres of water from becoming stormwater run off.

The Childers Climate

Childershas a humid subtropical climate with hot, wet summers and mild, dry winters with average annual rainfall of 935.9 mm.


The average maximum temperature is highest in January , and the average minimum is lowest in July. 

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference.

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner.

Pioneer understands the importance of clean water, particularly when it comes to drinking water for you and your family. 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 prevent the growth of algae and bacteria in your water tank.

The Aqualiner Fresh ® utilises Sanitized ® technology, with the antibacterial attributes of silver, interwoven into the water tank liner.

The industry-leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that make up the toughest, 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 designed with the sole purpose of water storage.

The V-Lock wall profile is designed to put the steel where it is needed most, for the optimal durability and support, as well as protecting the tank liner, not just from external debris, but also against stretching or warping as a result of the tank filling and emptying.

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

Australian made water tanks - Childers local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is made up of more than fifty water tank installers across Australia, which means we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

Childers Historical Fact

The Childers area was traditionally inhabited by the Dundaburra group who are part of Kabi Kabi nations in the northernmost area of the Wide Bay Burnett. Their descendants still live in the region.


Europeans first arrived in the area in the 1850s. Pastoralists established properties soon after to raise cattle on the fertile lands. Back then, sugar was (as it is now) the key crop grown in the area.
