Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Whilst most of Tasmania appears verdant and green, much like other parts of the country, many regions in Tasmania are afflicted by green drought, which leaves much of the vegetation susceptible to wildfires in the hot summer months.

It is important in any rural setting to ensure that you are doing the best you can to protect yourself from bushfire. You can do this by ensuring that you have a bushfire action plan, along with proper water storage for fire fighting purposes.

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 done by the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in partnership with the CSIRO.

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 critical to firefighting efforts.

While a water tank will still prove appropriate 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 ensure that it is still safe for household use.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Devonport climate

Devonport has an warm-summer mediterranean climate, bordering on an oceanic climate, with mild to warm summers, cool and moist winters and high humidity - about 70% -  year round.

The town averages 734mm of rainfall in the average year, with the majority of this rainfall between the months of April and October.

Devonport serves as a central business hub for surrounding cities and towns, and a terminal for ships and ferries from the mainland.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

In areas across Australia, especially rural and regional areas effected by drought, rainfall is usually a very welcome sight, and Tasmania is no outlier in this fact.

When steady rainfall accumulates, this can result in flooding and storm water run off, which can cause damage to property and the environment, particularly in areas where man made infrastructure such as roads and footpaths cause the water to be unable to soak in to the soil.

If a 24 hour period saw a 100mm deposit of rainfall on Devonport, it would only require 100 homes with fitted water tanks and appropriate guttering to keep 2 million litres of water from entering the environment.

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 prevent 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.

This industry leading water tank liner is made up of five layers that make up 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 has been engineered for durability, and created with the sole purpose of water storage in mind.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to protect the tank liner, by helping prevent 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.

Don't just take our word for it, the design is so sound, it won an Australian Design Award for its strength and visual appeal.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is comprised of over 50 water tank dealers across the country, meaning we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

In Tasmania, we are proud to be partnered with Statewide Tanks, who are able to assist with all your water storage needs.

A water tank is only as good as the person who builds it, so Pioneer ensures that our dealers are specialists in water tank construction.

Devonport Local Knowledge

Devonport fun fact

The city of Devonport has a formal sister city agreement with Minamata City in Japan.

During the 1850s the twin settlements of Formby and Torquay were established on opposite banks at the mouth of the Mersey River.

Things to do in Devonport

Devonport sees plenty of visitors as it is the Tasmanian terminal for the Spirit of Tasmania ferry from Victoria. If it's scenery you're after, Devonport is surrounded by rivers, beaches and mountains, so there is plenty to see, and with so much produce grown in the fertile soil of the Mersey-Forth valley, there's no shortage of great food from pub meals and fish and chips to fine contemporary fare and farm gate delights.
