Burnie Water Tanks

Burnie is a port city on the north-west coast of Tasmania. When founded in 1827, it was named Emu Bay, being renamed after William Burnie, a director of the Van Diemen's Land Company, in the early 1840s. Burnie was proclaimed a city by Queen Elizabeth II on 26 April 1988.

Pioneer Water Tanks have been the best Burnie water tank supplier and manufacturer for more than thirty years.

Pioneer Water Tank owners in Burnie rest easy in the knowledge they have the support of Australia's primary big tank manufacturer.

Even though 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

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 prone to wildfires in the hot summer months.

It is important in any rural setting to ensure that you are doing the best you can to protect yourself from bushfire. You can do this by ensuring that you have a bushfire action plan, along with adequate water storage for fire fighting purposes.

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

The CSIRO carried out bushfire simulation tests on water tanks in partnership with the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC, and the results showed that a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up better than the competition.

After 30 minutes of submersion in flame, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to store 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.

While a water tank will still prove adequate for watering backyards or lawns, if it has been subjected to fire, it is highly recommended 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 Burnie climate

Burnie is home to an oceanic climate, with long warm summer days, and cool short winter days. The summer days are as long as 16 hours, and in winter as short as 8 hours.

The city of Burnie averages 865.5mm of rainfall annually, with the majority of this falling in the winter months.

The key industries are heavy manufacturing, forestry and farming. The Burnie port along with the forestry industry provides the main source of revenue for the city.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

Rain is appreciated in rural areas all across Australia, especially those suffering drought conditions, and Tasmania is surely no different.

When consistent 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 infrastructure such as roads and footpaths cause the water to be unable to soak in to the soil.

If 100mm of rain fell on Burnie  in just 24 hours, in order to keep 2 million litres of rainfall from entering stormwater systems, it would require just 100 homes armed with rainwater tanks and appropriate guttering.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh® antimicrobial water tank liner

The Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the one and only antimicrobial tank liner available on the market today, and has been 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.

This is an industry leading product, comprised of five engineered layers, assembling to produce the most scientifically advanced, cleanest and strongest 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 created with the sole purpose of water storage.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to give protection to the tank liner, by helping prevent stretching and wear, and the sheets are engineered to the ideal thickness for each panel, meaning we put the steel where it's needed most.

Don't just take our word for it, the design is so sound, it won an Australian Design Award for its strength and visual appeal.
