RURAL WATER TANKS FOR FARMS, GROWERS AND AGRICULTURE

Our rural water tanks were born out of the rugged Australian outback, and have been developed to withstand the harshest climates worldwide.  If a water tank that will stand up to the test of time is what you're looking for,  then you’ve come to the right place.  Pioneer Water Tanks will look after you.

Rural Water Tank FAQ's 

ARE YOUR TANKS SUITABLE FOR IRRIGATION PURPOSES?

Yes, our water tanks are built to the highest industry specifications, and are capable of withstanding the rigours of irrigation.

DO YOU OFFER TANKS FOR MY HOME ON A FARM?

Absolutely, as long as you have the space for your tank, and a method of harvesting rainwater, we can provide you with a long term water storage solution

WHAT SET UP DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR AN IRRIGATION TANK?

If you are taking water from a dam or bore, we recommend (where possible) that you install your inlet at the bottom wall of your water tank.  It might seem unusual but the best water tank performance comes from bottom inlets.  If your water is coming from a roof we recommend the standard roof lead filter basket.

WHY IS A BOTTOM INLET HELPFUL?

Top inlets create tiny wave actions on the water service when water enters the tank and sometimes water can splash into the roof area.  If you can, you should avoid this.

WHAT OTHER STEPS SHOULD I CONSIDER WITH A BOTTOM INLET? 

When you fill from a bottom inlet you should be pushing into a volume of water, water levels simply rise and fall, and there’s no splashing. You might be thinking there’s a lot of water inside pushing back into your inlet, that’s not the case.  


When you send water to the top of a two-metre water tank you have two metres of head pressure. With this in mind, if the water level inside your tank is sitting at one metre you have one metre of head pressure, two metres equals two metres of head pressure and so on.

DO YOU HAVE A GUTTER SYSTEM FOR YOUR TANK?

In over than 30 years of trading, we have come across only a small number of people who have insufficient roof area to collect water, and find that a gutter system is not typically required.

If you’re not sure, call one of our consultants for advice.
