Rosebery Water Tanks

Rosebery is a town on the west coast of Tasmania, just over 30km from Queenstown. It is at the northern end of the West Coast Range, in the shadow of Mount Black and adjacent to the Pieman River now Lake Pieman.

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

People of Rosebery know that they can feel confident, knowing they have the backing and support of Australia's leading big tank company.

Although much of the mainland hold the belief that Tasmania is a verdant land of abundant rains, people in Tasmania know better, and are mindful of 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.

Regardless of your water storage needs, Pioneer Water Tanks has the water tank that is right for you, in both size and durability.

The Litres/Gallons stated above are gross capacities. Actual useable volume will vary depending on the size and position of inlets and outlets

Water Tank Colours

Every Pioneer Water Tank installed in Australia is made from Australian made and sourced BlueScope Steel, and manufactured in the Australian Pioneer Water Tanks facility. Pioneer Water Tanks are available in either a standard Zincalume ® finish, or in the full series of Colorbond ® colours seen below.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

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

It is important in any rural setting to ensure that you are doing the most you can to protect yourself from bushfire. You can do this by making sure that you have a bushfire action plan, as well as sufficient water storage for fire fighting purposes.

In order to ensure your water tank can be used for the purposes of both household or property water storage, and fire protection, Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

The CSIRO carried out bushfire simulation tests on water tanks in partnership with the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC, and the results showed that a steel Pioneer Water Tank performed better than the competition.

All other tanks tested either melted or split, 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 crucial to fire fighting efforts.

While a water tank will still prove appropriate for watering backyards or lawns, if it has been subjected to fire, it is highly advised that you get the tank water tested as soon as possible to ensure that it is still safe for household use.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Rosebery climate

Rosebery has an oceanic climate, with cool summers and cold winters, and plentiful rainfall the year round.

Heavy rainstorms can be experienced throughout the year, with more than 180 rainy days in the average year resulting in an annual average rainfall in the town of 1,961.4mm.

Like most of the other settlements on the west coast of Tasmania, Rosebery is a mining town.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

However; storms causing heavy rainfall in a short time period can cause storm water runoff, especially in areas with roads and footpaths preventing the water from soaking into the soil.

If a 24 hour time period saw a 100mm deposit of rainfall on Rosebery, it would only entail 100 homes with fitted water tanks and sufficient guttering to keep 2 million litres of water from entering the environment.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh® antimicrobial water tank liner

The Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the one and only antimicrobial tank liner available on the market today, and has been shown to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria in your water tank.

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

This is an industry leading product, made up of five engineered layers, assembling 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, also exclusive to Pioneer Water Tanks, has been created with the sole purpose of water storage.

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

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.
