Water Storage Challenges in Midland Western Australia

Hotter and Drier than Perth

Perth is the sunniest city in Australia, in terms of total annual clear days, and because of this it is popular for its beaches and rivers. It is also famously the most isolated capital city on Earth, with Adelaide being over 2000km away. Because of this, it is often overlooked as the fourth most populous city in Australia, boasting a little over 2 million residents as of June 2017.

Despite being a short train ride or drive from Perth, Midland experiences average temperatures in summer of one degree warmer than Perth – often up to five degrees hotter than the capital on particularly warm days – and typically experiences less rainfall thanks to the distance from the coast. Paired with Midland’s proximity from the bushfire-prone Perth Hills region, it is important to ensure you have reliable water storage.

Bushfire Protection with Pioneer Water Tanks

Midland Water Tanks for Bushfire Protection

Much of Australia’s native bushland and vegetation have evolved to require bushfires as part of their natural life cycle, which has resulted in areas of Australia being affected by widespread bushfires more regularly than anywhere on earth. Paired with the effects of climate change on drought and temperatures, the long summer months often result in widespread and out-of-control bushfires in areas like the Perth Hills.

The Zincalumne ® and Colorbond ® steel products used in Pioneer Water Tanks are designed to withstand temperatures of up to 200°C – unlike poly water tanks, which are more likely to melt or have their structural and hygienic integrity compromised by any temperatures above 100°C.

Steel liner tanks are also better equipped to handle extended exposure to the extreme heat of Western Australia’s climate, as opposed to polyethylene or slimline water tanks, which are not recommended to be exposed to prolonged temperatures above 40 degrees – in the 2021/2022 Summer, Midland sweltered through a record 13 days above 40 degrees, including a record six in a row.

A Wide Range of Water Tanks

Colorbond ® Colours

For ease of water harvesting, as well as water supply, most people install their water tank close to the house. This means it is important that your water tank is something you’re proud to display. Pioneer knows how important it is your rainwater tank not only services your water storage needs, and is made from the highest quality materials – but also looks good doing it.

Pioneer Water Tanks are available in a traditional Zincalume ® finish, as well as in a range of Colorbond® colours, to ensure a satisfying product with the right design for all customers.

Water Tank Sizes - Dimensions and Capacities

pioneer water tank sizes and dimensions

The Litres/Gallons stated above are gross capacities. Actual useable volume will vary depending on the size and position of inlets and outlets.

Other sizes and measurements to consider

When installing a Pioneer Water Tank, it is recommended that the minimum size of the tank site be 2m wider than the tank diameter, leaving 1m of sand pad on each side of the tank. This means that for a GT110 – which is 8m in diameter – you would need a 10m diameter space to install the water tank.

The sand pad itself – which needs to be installed, level, stable and free of debris prior to construction – needs to be 150mm (minimum) thick of clean sand, and covered with aggregate after the tank has been installed, in order to prevent erosion and to comply with warranty conditions.

As for the location of your rainwater tank, it must be located at least 50cm below gutter height for every 100cm away from the downpipe it is situated, in order to ensure that it will fill correctly.

Water Tanks and WA Water Regulations

Western Australia has restrictions on lawn and garden watering, with sprinklers only able to be turned on on allocated days. Hand watering is excepted from this, however, with increasingly busy lifestyles, hand watering isn’t going to keep most people’s gardens alive.

By installing a water tank in your home, you can save money on water bills and use water more freely for your home and garden.

Pioneer Water Tanks come in sizes starting at 12,000 litres and feature the Pioneer exclusive Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial liner, which exceeds Australian drinking water standards. All residential tanks come with a 20-year conditional warranty.
