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 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.
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.
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.
As everyone's water harvesting and rainwater storage needs are different, depending on their annual rainfall, water usage, and roof size.
