Brighton Water Tanks

Brighton is a suburb 27 km north of Hobart. It is located between Pontville and the outer Hobart suburb of Bridgewater on the Midland Highway.

For over 30 years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a leading Brighton water tank manufacturer and supplier.

Pioneer Water Tank owners in Brighton rest easy in the knowledge they have the support of Australia's number one big tank supplier.

Although much of the mainland hold the belief that Tasmania is a grassy land of abundant rains, people in Tasmania know better, and are mindful of their water storage needs.

Water Tanks to Suit Every Need

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Thanks to prevalent green drought, much of Tasmania is vulnerable to wildfires, thanks to dry soil and weak vegetation, despite the verdant and lush aesthetics of much of the state.

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

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 required.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

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

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

While a water tank will still prove appropriate for watering backyards or lawns, if it has been subjected to fire, it is highly advised 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 Brighton climate

Brighton has a mild temperate oceanic climate, with mild to warm summers, cool and moist winters and few hours of average daily sunshine.

Brighton averages just over 550mm of rainfall annually, with the majority of this rainfall between the months of August and December.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

Rain is welcome in rural areas all across Australia, particularly those suffering drought conditions, and Tasmania is certainly no different.

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 facilities such as roads and footpaths cause the water to be unable to soak in to the ground.

If Brighton received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour deluge, it would require just 100 homes to have water tanks to keep 2 million litres of water from entering stormwater systems and contributing to stormwater runoff and flooding damages.

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.

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

The most technologically advanced, cleanest and toughest liner available on the market, this is an industry leading product, comprised of five distinct layers to protect and store your water.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

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

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

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

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

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

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

It is essential that our water tank dealers are professionals in water tank construction, as a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Brighton Local Knowledge

Brighton fun fact

The area is also the site of a major horse racing training facility located at Brighton Racecourse known as the Brighton Training Centre, serving the thoroughbred, trotting & pacing industry. The Training centre is located north of the town centre on Racecourse Road. The original course proper was 2000 metres from start to finish and was home of the Brighton Cup until the racecourse was closed for training use only in 1973.
