New Norfolk Water Tanks

New Norfolk is a town on the River Derwent, in the south-east of Tasmania, less than 50km from Kingston.

For over thirty years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a highly regarded New Norfolk water tank manufacturer and distributor.

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

Despite the outside view that Tasmania is a green and rainy state all over, people of Tasmania know better, and understand their water storage needs.

Water Tanks to Suit Every Need

Water Tank Sizes

Pioneer's water tank sizes come in a vast range, with domestic and rural tanks available from 12kl to 500kl, and the commercial and industrial tanks available in up to a tremendous 3 million litres.

Pioneer Water Tanks has the product that is suitable for you in both size and quality, regardless of what project you're working on.

Water Tank Colours

All water tanks produced by Pioneer Water Tanks are made right here in Australia, from Australian BlueScope steel. Pioneer Water Tanks are available in the full series of Colorbond ® colours found below, or in a standard Zincalume ® finish.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Despite being a magnificent and green part of the country, many parts of Tasmania are plagued by green drought, which means in the hot, dry summer months, plant life is dry and vulnerable to wildfires.

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

When the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC together with the CSIRO performed bushfire simulations on a selection of water tanks, a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up best.

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 vital to firefighting efforts.

If your water tank has been subjected to fire, it is important 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 New Norfolk climate

New Norfolk is the warmest area of Tasmania during summer afternoons and has a cool temperate oceanic climate

New Norfolk sees an average yearly rainfall of 551.1mm, with rainfall year round.

Founded by farming families, the area around New Norfolk was fertile enough for the town to become self sufficient in the early 1800s.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

However; stormwater run off brought on by heavy rainfall, particularly in areas with roads and footpaths, can bring about wide-spread flooding and damage by water that can't escape into the ecosystem.

If New Norfolk 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.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

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

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to protect 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.

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.

New Norfolk Local Knowledge

New Norfolk fun fact

Approximately 163 of the pioneers who settled around the town were from the 554 folk resettled when the first Norfolk Island settlement was closed - hence the name New Norfolk. These Norfolk Islanders were mainly farming families, who were offered land grants in Tasmania as compensation for their relocation.

Many founding folk were "First Fleeters", transferred from Sydney to Norfolk Island when it was settled just a few weeks after Sydney. Ten First Fleeters are buried in the Methodist Chapel at Lawitta, New Norfolk.
