Kingston Water Tanks

Kingston serves as the gateway between Hobart and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel region, which meets the Derwent River nearby. It is one of the fastest growing regions in Tasmania.

Pioneer Water Tanks have been a premier Kingston water tank supplier and manufacturer for more than 30 years.

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

Regardless of the outside view that Tasmania is a lush and rainy state all over, people of Tasmania know better, and are mindful of their water storage needs.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

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

An important way to prepare for the drier summer months is to ensure that you not only have a bushfire action plan, but also that you have adequate 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 held up best.

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

If your water tank has been exposed to fire, it is essential to ensure that you get your water tested as soon as possible to make sure that it is safe for food preparation or drinking. The water would, however, still be suited for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Kingston climate

The climate in Kingston is warm and temperate, with mild to warm summers, cool and moist winters and more rainfall than the nearby capital in Hobart.

The town averages 609.9mm of rainfall in the annually, with reasonably even rainfall the whole year round.

Kingston was named by the Best Suburb in Australia for families by Aussie Home Loans in their annual study of 3800 Australian towns.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

In areas across Australia, especially rural and regional areas effected by drought, rainfall is usually a very welcome sight, and Tasmania is no outlier in this fact.

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 soil.

If Kingston received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour downpour, 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

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 Aqualiner Fresh ® utilises Sanitized ® technology, with the antibacterial properties of silver, interwoven into the water tank liner.

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

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

The Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile, also exclusive to Pioneer Water Tanks, has been designed 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 preventing 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.

It's a design so good, it won an Australian Design Award for the superior strength and internal support, together with its aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is comprised of over fifty water tank dealers across the country, meaning we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

In Tasmania, our local dealer is Statewide Tanks Tasmania, who we are proud to recommend to assist with all your water storage needs.

We ensure that our dealers are of the highest quality, as we know that a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Kingston Local Knowledge

Kingston fun fact

Kingston has close ties with the Dutch community, where after 1950 many post-war immigrants moved to an area they called ‘Little Groningen’ (today Firthside). To this day, Kingston has a sister city agreement with Grootegast in the  Netherlands.

Things to do in Kingston 

History buffs flock to the Shot Tower which was built on the road into Kingston in 1870. This magnificently tall tower was used to manufacture musket bullets, is well preserved and open to the public.

Of course, the city of Hobart is only a short drive away at any time, with dozens of attractions for tourists and locals alike.
