Pioneer Water Tank owners in Deloraine rest easy in the knowledge they have the support of Australia's primary big tank manufacturer.
Regardless of the outside view that Tasmania is a green and rainy state all over, people of Tasmania know better, and understand their water storage needs.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer
Whilst most of Tasmania appears verdant and green, much like other parts of the country, many regions in Tasmania are afflicted by green drought, which leaves much of the vegetation prone 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 sufficient water storage to help you and emergency services protect against the threat of wild fires.
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 collaboration with the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC, and the results showed that a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up better than the competition.
Importantly, in contrast to the other tanks-- which either melted or split - the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water even after a fire front, which could prove crucial to firefighting efforts.
After a fire front has gone by, the water in your tank can still be used for non-consumptive applications, such as watering your gardens, however, it is highly recommended to get your water tested as soon as possible to make sure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.
An Ongoing Battle with the Elements
The Deloraine climate
Deloraine, like most Tasmanian towns, has a temperate and wet climate.
Deloraine averages 832mm of rainfall in the average year, with the majority of this rainfall between the months of April and October.
Farms in the area produce poppies, herbs, onions and potatoes; as is typical produce for the Tasmanian climate. Deloraine is also home to the 41° South salmon and ginseng aqua farm.
Rainwater run-off and flooding
Rain is appreciated in rural areas all across Australia, particularly those experiencing drought conditions, and Tasmania is surely no different.
However; storms causing heavy rainfall in a short time period can cause storm water runoff, especially in areas with roads and footpaths preventing the water from soaking into the soil.
If Deloraine received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour deluge, it would require just 100 homes to have water tanks to prevent 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
Proven to prevent the growth of undesirable 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 natural antimicrobial properties of silver and Sanitized ® technology are woven into the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner.
This industry leading water tank liner is made up of five layers that form 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.
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.
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.

Deloraine Local Knowledge
Deloraine fun fact
One of the earliest railway lines in Tasmania was built between Launceston and Deloraine in 1871 to ship agricultural products into the city. It was constructed and operated by the private company, Launceston and Western Railway. The railway went bankrupt in 1872 after a mere year of operation and all assets were bought by the Tasmanian Government, as TasRail, in 1873.
Deloraine is named after a character from the poem The Lay of the Last Minstrel, written by Sir Walter Scott.
Things to do in Deloraine
The annual Tasmanian Craft Fair takes place in Deloraine, it attracts around 18,000 people annually. During the craft fair, there are around 260 exhibitors demonstrating crafts in the town. Because of this, as well as the large population of artists, the town is considered a cultural centre.
