Colorbond® Water Tank Colours

Genuine BlueScope Steel Water Tanks

If you purchase a Colorbond® rainwater tank from Pioneer, you can rest assured that it is manufactured from genuine BlueScope Steel, and the wall panels have a genuine Colorbond® finish, as Pioneer do not use any powder coating or painting, and roll the tank panels from coils of your desired Colorbond® colour.

This is why Pioneer Water Tanks has a range of standard Colorbond® colours and a range of non-standard Colorbond® colours.  While it is faster and more affordable to utilise the most popular colour range, Pioneer understands that your water tank should be available in the colour you want, in order to match your home, shed or environment.

The Strength of Colorbond® Tanks

Pioneer V-Lock® Engineering

One way Pioneer Water Tanks continue to lead the way in the water storage industry, is by going above and beyond when it comes to the fundamental aspects of your water tank.

The Pioneer V-Lock® is the tank wall profile that your Colorbond® sheets are formed into, which create the signature look of a Pioneer tank.

This wall profile was engineered specifically for water storage needs in mind, and is designed both for the strength of the tank and to reduce the impact of stretching and wear on the liner.

Combining this award-winning tank wall profile with high quality BlueScope steel, results in a water tank with unrivalled durability and corrosion protection, at a price that is great value.

Australian BlueScope Steel Tanks

Pioneer ensures that every Pioneer Water Tank is manufactured from genuine BlueScope steel, to ensure that the quality of Pioneer’s products is consistent and reliable.

BlueScope’s Colorbond® Steel has undergone rigorous testing all across the product range, to ensure that they are fit to stand up to the harsh Aussie climate. These are tested in lab conditions, as well as real climate testing to cover summer and winter, drought or rain.

Pioneer's 20/20 Warranty

The use of quality steel, as well as the professionalism that goes into the design, manufacturing and installation of every Pioneer Water Tank is why Pioneer is able to offer the Pioneer 20/20 Warranty.

That’s a 20 year conditional structural warranty, along with a 20 year conditional warranty against water leakage, and is applicable to any product in the rural range from 12,000 litres to 280,000 litres.

Quality Fittings and Accessories

Pioneer also has a range of fittings and accessories available, some that come with delivery of every water tank, and some optional to meet your specific requirements.

While the variety of optional accessories may come at an additional cost, they also help personalise your rainwater harvesting experience, and can be well worth the money with the help they provide.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best colour for a water storage tank?

There is no best one colour when it comes to steel water tanks, as the colour is more for aesthetic purposes than anything else. If you live in a coastal area where you have been given advice that you need better corrosion protection, then Colorbond® steel will offer you greater protection over Zincalume®, but no one colour will outperform another.

How much are tanks in Perth?

Water Tanks in Perth can cost any where from $1000 for a 2000 litre slimline poly water tank without any fittings, up to $25,000 for a 275000 litre steel water tank. These prices will vary depending on your requirements and location, and will vary even between similar companies. The best way to determine prices is to start looking for quotes.

How long does a steel water storage tank last?

Steel Water Tanks should be expected to last well upward of 20 years, and as they are modular and repairable, and can continue to be repaired for years after installation. Most Pioneer Water Tanks installed over 30 years ago are still in full operation to this day.

Is a stainless steel water tank worth it?

Stainless steel water tanks offer greater resistance to crevice corrosion, cavitation, and wear and tear in pure and contaminated waters, however they are significantly more expensive than steel liner tanks, and don’t provide many benefits to the average rural water tank user.

What is the best type of rainwater tank?

There is no one answer to this, as the majority of – if not all  – steel liner tanks and poly water tanks available on the market are made from food grade materials designed to safely interact with drinking water. It would be recommended not to install a concrete water tank for drinking, as they must be entirely emptied to be repaired, and can seep into your drinking water.

If you are looking for a water tank to use as your sole residential water supply, however, nothing compares to a steel water tank. With sizes up to 280,000L in the standard rural range, you’re able to harvest and store enough rainwater for your entire family in one water storage solution.
