Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer.

Bushfire preparation

Despite being a wintry and leafy part of the country, the ACT is also prone to bushfires in the warm, dry summer months, as the region receives much less rainfall than most people think, leaving grasses dry and susceptible to wildfires

On the first of January 2020, as bushfires thundered across the eastern states of Australia, Canberra had the worst air quality of any major city in the world, seriously impacting citizens in and around the city.

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

In order to ensure your water tank can be used for the purposes of both household or property water storage, and fire protection, Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

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

All other tanks tested either melted or split, causing them to shed precious water, however the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water after being exposed to the full 30-minute fire front, which could prove vital to fire fighting efforts.

If your water tank has been exposed to fire, it is important 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.

Phillip Water Storage Challenges

In a nation as dry as Australia, rain of any kind is often a welcome sight, however modern infrastructure like roads and footpaths, together with changing climate conditions, can often lead to flash flooding thanks to stormwater runoff, which can cause extensive damage.

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.

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

The Phillip Climate

Phillip 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 Phillip 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.

The natural antimicrobial properties of silver and Sanitized ® technology are woven into the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner.

The industry-leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that make up the strongest, cleanest and most scientifically advanced water tank liner on the market.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

The Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile has been engineered for strength, and designed with the sole purpose of water storage in mind.

This V-Lock panel profile is designed not only for the strength and durability of the tank wall itself by engineering the sheets to the ideal thickness for each panel, but also to protect the tank liner, preventing stretching and wear as the tank fills up and empties.

The design was deemed so good, in terms of structural integrity and aesthetic appeal, it won an Australian Design Award.

Phillip Historical Fact

The Swinger Hill housing estate is located in Phillip but separated by Hindmarsh and Athllon Drives from the main part of Phillip. The name Swinger Hill follows the pattern of calling local trigonometrical points after the surveyor who surveyed them, in this case Louis Walter Henry Swinger who surveyed this area.


Phillip also contains a number of sporting facilities, including the Phillip Enclosed Oval, which has been known as Football Park since 1981 and was the headquarters of Australian rules football in Canberra during the 1980s and 1990s.
