Tank Accessories

Hinged Access Hatch

A hinged access hatch can replace the standard access hatch for easier more frequent access to your Pioneer Tank.

If more access points are required, additional standard access hatches can be installed.

 

Heavy Duty Hinged Hatch
Additional Ladder and Bracket

Standard inclusions on every Pioneer tank include a ladder, bracket and access hatch. If you have additional access hatches or filter baskets, an extra ladder and bracket will ensure they are easy to access.

Rainsaver Caps

Harvest thousands of litres of extra rainwater that lands on the tank roof with rainsaver caps. The potential additional rainwater harvest is provided in the table below.

80mm Outlet (with or without valve)

An 80mm outlet (with or without valve) can replace or supplement your standard 50mm outlet with valve to meet higher flow requirements.

Liquidator Level Indicator

A level indicator lets you know exactly how much water you have, with models and styles to suit every application. The liquidator level indicator is our standard level indicator. It operates via a float inside the tank, connected via cable and pulley to a slide on the exterior. It provides a true reading of the level inside the tank and is suitable for potable water and effluent applications.

Dipstick Level Indicator

A dipstick level indicator provides 360° visibility via a pole on a float that protrudes from the tank roof. Ideal for checking levels from a distance in any direction and the dipstick can’t be damaged by stock.

Filter Baskets

To catch any debris that could potentially contaminate your supply as water flows into the tank, Pioneer Water Tanks can provide stainless steel or standard filter baskets that allow multiple 90mm or 100mm inlets to be fitted.

Replacement filter baskets can be purchased if required.

 

 

 

Additional Filter Baskets

We can provide additional filter baskets (both nylon and stainless steel) to accommodate multiple inlets.

50mm Fire Outlet

A domestic outlet with CFS fire coupling.

Fire Tree

A fire tree can provide up to 3 outlets for fire fighting use.

Poly or Galv Anti Vortex

An anti vortex plate on an outlet prevents a vortex from forming which draws air into the outlet pipe and reduces flow rate.

Fire Reserve outlet

Some councils require a fire reserve outlet which is placed below the domestic outlet in order to reserve some fire water in your tank for the CFS to use in emergency.

 

 

 

 

 
Superseal and condensation strips

Superseal is a protective foam which fills any gaps between roof sheets and the tank wall, to protect stored water from contamination from dust, insects and frogs. 
 

 

Fascia strips
Fascia strips offer protection from sharp edges and a clean, modern tank profile. 
 

 

Geotextile tank underlay

At Pioneer we recommend using Geotextile to provide a protective barrier between the tank liner, any impurities or sharps that may be in your pad. As a result of using Geotextile, we do not require a sand pad for construction: a cheaper crusher dust pad can be used instead. Geotextile is also used in erosion control and dam lining.

 

 

 

 
Sacrificial Anodes

Pioneer water tanks are installed with a sacrificial magnesium anode. Normal corrosion results from a transfer of ‘ions’ and hence electrical current flow between anodic and cathodic zones of a metal surface. These zones of different potential develop primarily due to variations in metallurgy, oxygen and moisture levels. When connected to the structure, the magnesium anodes act to counter this transfer by providing a source of electrical current such that the overall net current flow (hence corrosion) approaches zero. A secondary effect is the transfer of calcium and other alkaline salts through the soil being deposited on, and protecting the metal surface. This film is known as a calcareous deposit and serves to further inhibit corrosion by elevating the pH to a more alkaline condition.
