Longford Water Tanks

Longford is a town in the northern midlands of Tasmania, Australia, located just 6km from Perth, and just 15km from Launceston airport. It lies 145 m above sea level at the convergence of the Macquarie River and the South Esk River.

For over thirty years now, Pioneer Water Tanks have been manufacturing and developing water tanks Longford can trust.

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

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

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 greenery vulnerable to wildfires in the hot summer months.

In addition to 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 deliver that protection.

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

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

Importantly, unlike the other tanks-- which either melted or split - the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water even after a fire front, which could prove critical to firefighting efforts.

If your water tank has been subjected 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 suitable for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Longford climate

Longford is home to a temperate, oceanic climate, with long warm summer days, and cool short winter days.

Longford averages 627.9mm of rainfall annually, and whilst the majority of this falls in the winter months, the town sees rainfall year round.

Thanks to its central location and rich soil, the region is predominantly agricultural, noted for wool, dairy produce and stock breeding.

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 trigger storm water runoff, especially in areas with roads and footpaths preventing the water from soaking into the ground.

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

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.

This is an industry leading product, comprised of five engineered layers, assembling to produce the most scientifically advanced, cleanest and strongest water tank liner in the market today.

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.

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.

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

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks has the ability to provide truly local service to all Australians, no matter where they are based, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than 50 experienced water tank dealers.

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

A water tank is only as good as the person who builds it, so Pioneer makes sure that our dealers are professionals in water tank construction.
