Frequently Asked Questions

Who installs water tanks?

Pioneer Water Tanks install rainwater tanks all across Perth, Western Australia, and across the entire nation, with a dealer network comprised of over 50 small businesses who exclusively install Pioneer Water Tanks. Every water tank installed by Pioneer goes to supporting local businesses who live and work in your community, and Pioneer Water Tanks remain proudly Australian made, owned and operated.

Why are water tanks sustainable?

Steel water tanks can be viewed as both environmentally and financially sustainable, as they not only provide you with stored water to use as an alternative to mains water supply for drinking, showering and laundry, they can also help you lower water bills. And with an expected lifespan of 20+ years, you’ll be secure well into the future. Even after they reach the end of their service life, steel tanks are fully recyclable, leaving less environmental impact than concrete or poly tanks.

Are steel water tanks better than plastic?

Steel water tanks can be manufactured to significantly larger capacities than poly or slimline water tanks, and often used for different purposes. Whereas poly tanks can be made to reliably store water up to around 50,000 litres, Pioneer’s has metal water tanks for sale up to a 500,000 litre model. Read more information on poly vs steel water tanks.

Do steel water tanks rust?

Steel is considered a reliable metal, that remains ductile irrespective of temperature. In addition to being resistant to natural elements such as heat, wind, fire and UV rays, water tanks made from Zincalume® or Colorbond® steel are also resistant to rust and corrosion. Pioneer Water Tanks include sacrificial anodes for further protection of your steel water tank.

What is the best tank for drinking water?

For a long time. concrete tanks were considered to produce superior quality drinking water because of their stable water temperature resulting in less algal blooms. However concrete is hard to repair once it has been damaged, and can leech taste into the water. Pioneer’s industry leading Aqualiner Fresh® water tank liner utilises silver ions to prevent any algal blooms or bacterial growth from the inside of your tank, giving your reliable and and long lasting fresh, healthy drinking water. Read more information on concrete vs steel water tanks.
