Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer.

Bushfire preparation

Whilst a lot of the ACT appears lush and green, it actually registers one of the lowest rainfalls of the capital cities, meaning like much of Australia the area is prone to widespread bushfires in the hot summer months.

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.

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

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.

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.

After 30 minutes of submersion in flame, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water, a vital feature for firefighting efforts, while the other tanks tested either melted or split, causing their water to be partially or fully lost.

After a fire front has gone by, the water in your tank can still be used for non-consumptive purposes, like irrigating your gardens, however, it is highly advised to get your water tested as soon as possible to ensure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.

Gungahlin 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 weather conditions that lead to unpredictable storms, paired with 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 assist in decreasing the likelihood of flash flooding.

In the event of a storm that caused 100mm of rainfall in just 24 hours, it would take just one hundred homes with water tanks and adequate guttering to prevent 2 million litres of stormwater runoff from entering storm drains and roads.

The Gungahlin Climate

Gungahlin 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 Gungahlin 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 town.

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 minimize 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 is an industry-leading product, consisted of five engineered layers, assembling to produce the most scientifically advanced, cleanest and toughest water tank liner available today.

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 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.

Gungahlin Historical Fact

The Gungahlin Public Library officially opened in June 2011, and adjoining senior high school opened later that year. Burgmann College is located in the suburb of Gungahlin.
