Ulverstone Water Tanks

Ulverstone is a town on the northern coast of Tasmania, Australia on the mouth of the River Leven, on Bass Strait.  It is on the Bass Highway, 21 kilometres west of Devonport and 12 kilometres east of Penguin.

For over 30 years now, Pioneer Water Tanks have been building and developing water tanks Ulverstone can trust.

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

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

Water Tanks to Suit Every Need

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire preparation

Thanks to widespread green drought, much of Tasmania is vulnerable to wildfires, thanks to dry soil and weak vegetation, despite the grassy and lush appearance of much of the state.

An important way to prepare for the drier summer months is to ensure that you not only have a bushfire action plan, but also that you have appropriate water storage to help you and emergency services protect against the threat of wildfires.

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

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

When the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC along with the CSIRO performed bushfire simulations on a selection of water tanks, a steel Pioneer Water Tank held up best.

All other tanks tested either melted or split, causing them to lose valuable 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 Ulverstone climate

Ulverstone is in a Temperate oceanic climate region, Even the driest month still has a lot of rainfall.

Ulverstone typically receives 767.6mm of annual rainfall, with the winter months being the wettest.

Originally used for logging timber and selling on the mainland, mostly in Melbourne, the fertile soul and favourable conditions made Ulverstone great for agricultural pursuits.

Rainwater run-off and flooding

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

However; stormwater run off brought on 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 100mm of rain fell on Ulverstone in just 24 hours, in order to keep 2 million litres of rainfall from entering stormwater systems, it would require just 100 homes armed with rainwater tanks and appropriate guttering.

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 has been shown 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 industry leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that comprise 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 developed with the sole purpose of water storage.

This V-Lock panel profile is designed not only for strength 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 appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Tasmanian local service

Pioneer Water Tanks is able to provide truly local service to all Australians, no matter where they are located, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than 50 experienced water tank dealers.

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

It is crucial that our water tank dealers are professionals in water tank construction, as a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Ulverstone Local Knowledge

Ulverstone fun fact

It is assumed that Ulverstone is named for the British town of Ulverston, also situated on a Levin River.

Things to do in Ulverstone

James Fenton is recognised as the first European settler in the area. His first house, which was located about 100 metres on the Ulverstone side of the Forth Bridge, is remembered by a cairn which marks the site.

The kids will be able to play on a space playground full of rocket ships as you picnic nearby, and you can marvel at a lone pine tree that was grown from seeds taken from Loan Pine Ridge at Gallipoli.
