Port Sorell Water Tanks

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

Pioneer Water Tank owners in Port Sorell 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 green and rainy state all over, people of Tasmania know better, and are mindful of their water storage needs.

Port Sorell is a town on the north-west coast of Tasmania, Australia. It is on the waterway of the same name, just off Bass Strait, 20 km east of Devonport and close to Shearwater and Hawley Beach.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

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

It is crucial 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, as well as sufficient water storage for fire fighting purposes.

A steel water tank can be used as both fire protection and water storage for the home, and Pioneer also offers a fire reserve option for your water tank if needed.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

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

After thirty minutes of submersion in flame, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to store water, a vital feature for firefighting efforts, while the other tanks tested either melted or cracked, causing their water to be partially or fully lost.

After a fire front has gone by, the water in your tank can still be used for non-consumptive purposes, such as watering your gardens, having said that, it is highly recommended to get your water tested as soon as possible to ensure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Port Sorell climate

The climate in Port Sorell is warm and temperate, and there is significant rainfall throughout the year

The town averages over 818 mm of rainfall in the average year, with the majority of this rainfall coming in the winter months.

The area is predominantly a tourist destination, but features plenty of dairy and cattle farms thanks to rich grasses in the region.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

In areas across rural Australia, rainfall is often a welcome sight, and Tasmania is certainly no different.

When steady rainfall builds up, 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 facilities such as roads and footpaths cause the water to be unable to soak in to the soil.

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

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 technologically 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 toughness 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 visual appeal.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks Dealer Direct Network is comprised of over 50 water tank dealers across the country, meaning we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

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

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