Bridport Water Tanks

Bridport is a small town on the north-east coast of Tasmania, located on Anderson Bay. It has beaches to support swimming, sailing and other water sports, and is located some 63km from Launceston.

For over thirty years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a leading Bridport water tank manufacturer and distributor.

The backing and history of Australia's number one big tank company, means that people in Bridport can be satisfied with their water storage solutions.

Tasmania is often seen from the outside as a rainy green island all over, however, locals know better, and have their water supply demands in mind.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

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

An important way to prepare for the drier summer months is to make sure that you not only have a bushfire action plan, but also that you have appropriate water storage to help you and emergency services protect against the threat of wildfires.

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

When the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in conjunction with the CSIRO performed bushfire simulations on a range of water tanks, a steel Pioneer Water Tank stood up best.

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

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.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Bridport climate

Bridport has its temperate oceanic climate to thank for its beautiful summers that make it a great tourist destination. Much of the 721mm of annual rainfall comes in the winter months, leaving the spring and summer attractive for outdoor activities.

This summer weather has led to Bridport thriving in the warmer months, with some estimates having the town's summer population as high as 5000, almost triple its regular population.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

In areas across rural Australia, rainfall is often a welcome sight, and Tasmania is certainly no different.

However; storms causing heavy rainfall in a short time period can result in storm water runoff, especially in areas with roads and footpaths preventing the water from soaking into the ground.

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

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh® antimicrobial water tank liner

A Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner on the market, 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 scientifically advanced water tank liner on the market.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

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

This V-Lock panel profile is designed not only for 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 and empties.

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

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks has the ability to provide truly local service to all Australians, regardless of where they are located, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than 50 experienced water tank dealers.
