Queenstown Water Tanks

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

People of Queenstown know that they can rest assured, knowing they have the backing and support of Australia's number one big tank company.

Despite 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.

Queenstown is a town in the West Coast region of the island of Tasmania, Australia. It is in a valley on the western slopes of Mount Owen on the West Coast Range.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Despite being a beautiful 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.

It is important 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, along with proper 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 required.

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 partnership with the CSIRO.

All other tanks tested either melted or cracked, causing them to lose precious water, however the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water after being exposed to the full 30 minute fire front, which could prove critical 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 ensure 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 Queenstown climate

Queenstown has a very wet oceanic climate, and is one of the wettest locations in Tasmania with an annual average rainfall of 2408.2 mm, spread throughout the year.

Summers are mild although temperatures can occasionally rise above 30 °C while winters are cool and almost always cloudy; however, during rare clear spells overnight temperatures can drop well below freezing. 

Queenstown has a predominantly mining history, with the town not experiencing enough sunshine for prosperous farming.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

When consistent rainfall accumulates, 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 Queenstown received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour deluge, 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

The Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the only antimicrobial tank liner available on the market today, and is 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, made up of five engineered layers, coming together to produce the most technologically advanced, cleanest and strongest water tank liner available today.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

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 wall profile is designed to put the steel where it is needed most, for the optimal strength and support, in addition to protecting the tank liner, not just from external debris, but also against stretching or warping from the tank filling and emptying.

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

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

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

Queenstown Local Knowledge

Queenstown fun fact

This mountainous area was first explored in 1862, and by the 1880's gold had been discovered in the region, leading to strong mining operations.

 Brief, light snowfall usually occurs several times each winter, with occasional heavier snow falling every few years.

Things to do in Queenstown

Queenstown is home to the heritage listed, and Tasmanian AFL Hall of Fame entrant Queenstown. Queenstown Oval is famous for being made of gravel, rather than grass, due to the belief that a grass oval would simply turn to mud under Queenstown's massive rainfall.

Set at the base of a mountain range, there is plenty to see in Queenstown for sightseers and hikers.
