Poly Water Tank Prices

Pioneer Does Not Sell or Manufacture Poly Water Tanks

Poly Water Tank Prices WA

In your search for a rainwater tank for your home, you may look at poly water tanks prices Perth manufacturers and suppliers offer, particularly if you are looking for small water tanks or cheap water tanks.

Polytanks are made from polyethylene, a type of plastic that is resistant to corrosion and is highly durable, and  are available in a range of shapes and colours, including black, green, grey and blue.

Poly tanks are designed to be resistant to cracking and splitting, making them a long-lasting and reliable option for storing water, particularly if they are kept in a shaded area, and if you are in need of a small slimline tank in the 1000 litre to 10000 litre range.

Made from a UV-treated plastic, poly water tanks are a pre-made, lightweight and easy delivery and install water storage solution, available in round, vertical, horizontal or even underground tanks, typically sold without accessories, fittings or installation costs.

Pioneer Water Tanks is only able to offer steel water tank prices, however if you need less than 50000 litres of water storage, for a quote on plastic water tank prices or a poly water tank price list, head to West Coast Poly for more information.

Cheap Water Tanks, Safe for Drinking and Gardens

Water Tanks for Drinking Water

For people with access to mains water, and on a small block, one reason they may be looking into purchasing rainwater tanks is for residential drinking water – particularly if they have just made the move from the country. Despite being a cheaper option for water storage, and being made from plastic, poly water tanks are great potable water storage products, as they are BPA free and constructed from UV stabilised plastic, with a high level of durability.

If you are planning on using slimline tanks or poly tanks for drinking water in a suburban or urban area, it is important to ensure that your rainwater harvesting area is safe, and free from any contaminants or pollution. Healthy WA has a handy guide on water tanks on your property, answering questions and giving advice on safe drinking water from water tanks.

Using Rainwater in the Laundry and Garden

Another great value aspect, and common reason why people commit to the choice of installing a rainwater tank is that they can reduce the price of their water bill, and give themselves more freedom of water use in their house and garden in times with long periods without rain.

The Water Corporation recommends that in Perth and the South West, your garden only needs 10mm of water twice a week to stay healthy, however we all notice our lawns struggle in the hot summers with only two days of irrigation. One reason for this is that the inclusions of chemicals in mains water supply strips tap water of many of the nutrients found in rainfall. 

The same is true within the house, where you can see build-up of chemicals on taps, cisterns and in the washing machine from hard water, where rainwater is much softer on your taps and clothes, requiring less energy and less water use in order to effectively clean.

Warranty and Customer Service Guarantee

Warranty lengths and pricing will vary based on which companies you purchase your poly tank from, however typically the warranty or guarantee on a poly tank is 10-20 years. 

Making sure you purchase from an Australian business who uses high quality materials that meet Australian standards will help ensure quality, and give you peace of mind.

What if I need larger water tank sizes?

While poly water tanks are a great solution when it comes to customers who need a small tank, be it due to a lack of space on their site, limited requirements due to comfortable access to mains water, or more simple factors such as money, some people need a larger capacity tank than poly water tanks are able to offer. 

When you start looking at a 50 000 litre water tank price, rather than 9000 litre water tank or 5000 litre water tank prices, you’ll notice that the cost of water tanks starts to skew in the favour of steel water tanks – particularly after factoring in water tank accessories.

Steel Water Tank Advantages

Larger capacity water tank range

Where you will need to increase the number of poly water tanks to achieve water storage in the 100,000 litre/25,000 gallon capacity, with a steel tank you simply have to increase the size.

While some people do choose to install multiple steel tanks that are linked to each other, or capturing rainfall from a different roof, steel water tanks come in sizes up to 500,000 litres, though these are typically only used for cattle farms or stock tanks.

While not available in as many colours, Pioneer Water Tanks are manufactured in Australia from Colorbond ® steel, and can still be built in a number of colours to suit the location.

Included accessories

Once prices start to become similar between steel and poly water tanks, you may notice that steel water tanks come with a host of included accessories that poly water tanks do not.

There are also a range of non-standard accessories you may choose to include with your steel water tank, such as water level monitoring systems, pumps, dustproofing and more.

You can even harvest water straight from the roof of your steel tank with Pioneer’s exclusive Smart Water Savers.

Durability and proven performance

Pioneer Water Tanks have been manufacturing and installing water tanks for homes and businesses across Australia for more than 30 years, and with that time comes a lot of experience.

Importantly, it comes with proven performance, as most of the tanks installed in Pioneer’s first year of business back in 1988 still stand to this day.

Steel water tanks are also unrivalled when it comes to bushfire protection, and can be valuable resources in Australia’s hot, dry summers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a poly water tank last?

Poly water tanks can last up to 20 years or more. The water tank materials can withstand the harsh effects of the Sun due to UV-stabilisers added to the moulding mix. Steel water tanks can be expected to last for up to 30 years, with a more durable outer shell more able to withstand the Australian climate.

Which type of water tank is best?

For smaller tanks, poly is more affordable and comes in shapes that can conveniently fit on suburban blocks, and don’t require a sand pad in the way large steel tanks do. However when it comes to longevity, fire protection and sustainability, steel rainwater tanks win hands down. They have been proven to last over 30 years, are the best rated water storage for fire protection, and the steel sheets and trusses are fully recyclable at the end of their service life.

What are the disadvantages of poly tanks?

Poly tanks are susceptible to melting in bushfire conditions, aren’t designed to withstand prolonged temperatures above 40 degrees, are more difficult to repair, and are limited by their size. If you need a small water tank for your laundry or garden, however, they will be a perfect fit.

Can you put poly tanks in the ground?

While it isn’t appropriate to completely bury a regular water tank, you can find poly tanks that are designed to be placed underground, even able to be installed beneath lawns or decks. An advantage of an underground poly tank is that they are a lot less expensive than concrete tanks, made to withstand the pressure of being buried and are much easier to install.

Despite their differences, both water tanks come with their advantages and disadvantages. If you’re looking for a small water tank, with easy installation, that doesn’t need to provide your entire home with water or protect your property from bushfire, then a plastic water tank may be the best option for you.

If you need a large amount of water storage, and have the space for a large base to serve as a tank pad, and need reliable access to water supply from your water tank year round, or for bushfire protection purposes, then you’re likely more suited to a steel water tank. The fact steel water tanks are more affordable at larger capacities may be enough to make your decision.
