Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer.

Bushfire preparation

Unfortunately the long hot dry seasons in Monto leave it, similar to much of Australia, vulnerable to extensive bushfires. Even with the fact that much of Monto's rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often leads to long grasses which burn 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, an important way to get ready for the drier months is to be certain that you have appropriate 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 make sure it can be used for both residential water storage and fire protection.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

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

After 30 minutes of submersion in flame, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water, an essential attribute for firefighting efforts, while the other tanks put to the test either melted or split, causing their water to be partially or completely lost.

If your water tank has been subjected to fire, it is essential 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.

Monto Water Storage Challenges

In a country that is known for being as dry as Australia, it is no surprise that many people take delight at the idea of rainfall, that being said changing weather conditions that lead to unpredictable storms, coupled with modern infrastructures like roads and footpaths can lead to stormwater runoff and flash flooding.

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

If a sudden weather event drops 100mm of rain in Monto in just 24 hours, it would tank only 100 homes equipped with rainwater tanks to keep 2 million litres of water from running down roads and filling storm drains.

The Monto Climate

Monto has 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. Proven to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in your water tank, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner available on the market, and a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive.

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

The 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

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

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

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

Australian made water tanks - Monto local service

Made up of more than fifty local water tank installers across the country, Pioneer's Dealer Direct Network means that we can offer truly local service to all Australians.

A water tank is only as good as the person who builds it, so Pioneer ensures that our installers are experts in water tank erection.

In the Monto region, your local Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer is The Tank Specialists, who are fully qualified tank installers who also specialise in plumbing, site preparation and water carting.

Monto Historical Fact

Gureng Gureng is an Australian Aboriginal language spoken by the Gureng Gureng people. The Gooreng Gooreng language region includes the towns of Bundaberg, Gin Gin and Miriam Vale extending south towards Childers, inland to Monto and Mt Perry.


Europeans settled in the area in the late 1840s, maintaining large pastoral holdings at the northern end of the Burnett Valley. Gold unearthed along Three Moon Creek — a tributary of the Burnett River — in the 1870s attracted further settlers.
