Swansea Water Tanks

Swansea is a town in the heart of Tasmania's east coast - about 100km down the coast from St Helens - on the north-west shore of Great Oyster Bay and overlooking Freycinet National Park. It was the first municipality in Australia to be established after Hobart and Sydney.

For over 30 years now, Pioneer Water Tanks have been manufacturing and developing water tanks Swansea can rely on.

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

Although much of the mainland hold the belief that Tasmania is a verdant land of plentiful rains, people in Tasmania know better, and are mindful of their water storage needs.

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 vulnerable to wildfires in the hot summer months.

As well as having a bushfire action plan, an important way to be prepared 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 provide 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

The CSIRO performed 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 held up better than the competition.

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.

After a fire front has passed, the water in your tank can still be used for non-consumptive purposes, such as watering your gardens, however, 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 Swansea climate

Swansea has a mild oceanic climate with mild summers and cool winters with moderate to low rainfall spread throughout the year.

In the average year, Swansea receives 594mm of rainfall, a reasonable amount less than towns on the more northern part of the east coast.

The land was developed and made suitable for seasonal crops and grazing stock and a tannery and flour mill were established by the Meredith River. Whaling stations were also set up on nearby islands to enable the export of whale oil.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

However; stormwater run off caused by heavy rainfall, especially in areas with roads and footpaths, can bring about widespread flooding and damage by water that can't escape into the ecosystem.

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

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh® antimicrobial water tank liner

Proven to prevent the growth of undesirable bacteria in your water tank, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner available on the market, and a Pioneer Water tanks exclusive.

Utilising Sanitized ® technology, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner has the antibacterial properties of silver woven into the tank liner.

This is an industry leading product, comprised of five engineered layers, coming together to produce the most scientifically 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 developed with the sole purpose of water storage.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to give protection to the tank liner, by helping prevent 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.

It's a design so good, it won an Australian Design Award for the superior strength and internal support, together 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 provide truly local service to all Australians.

In Tasmania, our local dealer is Statewide Tanks, who we are proud to recommend to assist with all your water storage needs.

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

Swansea Local Knowledge

Swansea fun fact

Prior to the arrival of Europeans the area was occupied for at least 35,000 years by people from the Paredarerme Aboriginal language group. The number of shell middens in the area suggests that visitors from other areas may well have come to the shores where mussels and fish were in abundance.

The first European to explore the Swansea area was Captain John Henry Cox sailing from England to Sydney. He took his ship, the Mercury, up the eastern coast of Tasmania. On 3 July 1789, having heard of vast colonies of seals in the area, he sailed along the western shore of Maria Island and into a stretch of water he named Oyster Bay.

Things to do in Swansea

Travellers to Swansea and the East Coast of Tasmania often pause to admire the historic homes and buildings; spend time fishing and enjoying the distinctive charm of Swansea as a holiday destination; and head for Freycinet for bushwalking and to marvel at Wineglass Bay.
