Westbury Water Tanks

Westbury is a town in the central north of Tasmania, 16km out of Deloraine on the Bass Highway. It is part of, and the headquarters of, the Meander Valley Council area.

For over thirty years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a leading Westbury water tank manufacturer and supplier.

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

Even though 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

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 vegetation susceptible to wildfires in the hot summer months.

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 sufficient 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 needed.

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions

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

All other tanks tested either melted or cracked, 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 critical to fire fighting efforts.

If your water tank has been subjected 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 suitable for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

An Ongoing Battle with the Elements

The Westbury climate

The climate in Westbury is warm and temperate. Westbury has a significant amount of rainy days during the year. This is true even for the driest month.

Westbury has an average annual rainfall of just 593.7mm despite its many rainy days.

Military pensioners were each granted a 5-acre block of land complete with a well and pear tree. By the mid-1800s Westbury had become the largest military community in Tasmania. Westbury remains a small town servicing the local agriculture industry.

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 Westbury received 100mm of rain in a 24 hour deluge, 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

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 proven to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria in your water tank.

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

This industry leading water tank liner is comprised of five layers that form the strongest, cleanest and most technologically 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 designed 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, in addition to 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.

Westbury Local Knowledge

Westbury fun fact

Though Westbury is often described as a very "English village", the first European settlers were predominantly Irish; ex Irish convicts, retired soldiers and free settlers, many fleeing the Great Irish Famine in the 1840s. Gaelic was the local language in Westbury for many generations and a strong Irish brogue is reputed to have lasted throughout the 19th Century.

Westbury is named after Westbury in the English county of Wiltshire just south of Bath.

Things to do in Westbury

It is claimed that the Westbury Village Green, with its elms, oaks and chestnut trees, is the only true village green in Australia, and is well worth a visit if you are in town.

the Westbury Maze and Tea Rooms is a huge hedge maze with more than a kilometre of maze paths all edged by more than 3,000 two metre high bushes to challenge those who enjoy getting lost in a maze.
