Strahan Water Tanks

Strahan, is a small town and former port on the west coast of Tasmania near Queenstown. It is now a significant locality for tourism in the region.

For over thirty years now, Pioneer Water Tanks have been building and designing water tanks Strahan can depend on.

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

Tasmania is often seen from the outside as a rainy green island all over, however, locals know better, and have their water supply needs in mind.

Water Tanks to Suit Every Need

Water Tank Sizes

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

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

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

Pioneer Tanks are available in a standard Zincalume ® finish, or the full series of Colorbond colours seen below ®. All Pioneer tanks are manufactured right here in Australia with Australian BlueScope steel.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Whilst most of Tasmania appears verdant and green, much like other parts of the country, many regions in Tasmania are afflicted by green drought, which leaves much of the greenery susceptible to wildfires in the hot summer months.

As well as 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

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.

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 applications, like watering your gardens, having said that, it is highly recommended to get your water tested as soon as possible to make sure your water is safe before using it for food preparation or drinking.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Strahan climate

Strahan has an oceanic climate with mild damp summers and cool, very rainy winters. Strahan receives 15.7 days, on average, of clear weather annually.

Snow down to sea level is rare but falls frequently in the mountains just a few kilometres inland of Strahan and the town averages 1,552.2mm of rainfall annually.

Historically Strahan has been a port to a small fishing fleet that braves the west coast conditions and Hell's Gates. It is the nearest inhabited locality to Cape Sorell and is literally the 'gateway' to the south-west wilderness - as boats, planes and helicopters utilise Strahan as their base when travelling into the region.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

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

If Strahan received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour downpour, 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.

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

This industry leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that make up the strongest, cleanest and most scientifically advanced water tank liner on the market.

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 appearance.

Strahan Local Knowledge

Strahan fun fact

An extinct species of Banksia, fossils of which were found in sediment at nearby Regatta Point, was named Banksia strahanensis after the town.
