PIONEER WATER TANK SIZES

alternative to poly water tanks

How Much Water Storage Do I Need?

We estimate that the average rural residence needs somewhere in the vicinity of 30 000L of water per person, per year. If you're relying on s rainwater tank alone, a storage tank that exceeds this figure should be sufficient. Of course your ability to  harvest rainwater is also heavily dependent on your annual rainfall, and the size of your overall catchment area - or roof size.


Poly vs Steel Water Tank Sizes

Poly Water Tanks - or plastic tanks - are typically only available in sizes up to 50 000L; which typically isn't enough water supply for any more than two people with no access to mains water supply, and certainly wouldn't be enough to provide for a family.


Pioneer's Steel Water Tank Sizes range from our smaller GT10 which comes in at 12 200L all the way through to our GT500 which has a water storage capacity of 500 000L.


Larger or more specific water storage facilities for commercial or industrial applications can also be quoted to order.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much space will I need to ensure for my size water tank?

As our water tanks come in a diameter from 2.67m all the way up to 14.04m, the space required is completely dependent on your water storage requirements. A safe rule would be to ensure a space 3m wider than the diameter of your desired water tank. This ensures comfortable room for the required 1m on all sides for the pad, and ensures there will be no difficulties at the time of installation.

What accessories come with my water tank?

All Pioneer Water Tanks come with our standard accessories, including but not limited to; our industry leading AQUALINER FRESH® tank liner, our 150mm diameter tank overflow and a galvanised ladder. In addition, a range of optional tank accessories are also available for your water tank.


What water tank size do I need for my property?
