Customise your tank for the way you need to use it, with tank accessories that will optimise your water tanks serviceability and longevity.
Additional Hinged Access Hatch
If you require multiple entry points into your tank, we can supply and install extra hinged access hatches on your tank.
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.
Smart Water Savers
Harvest thousands of litres of extra rainwater that lands on the tank roof with Smart Water Savers. The potential additional rainwater harvest is provided in the table below.
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.
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. Generally used for irrigation and on wineries.
The outlet can be in Brass or Poly
Farmbot Monitor – Water Tank Level Indicator
The farmbot monitor is a fantastic 21st century way of monitoring and checking your water level, it allows you to check the level of your tank through its mobile or desktop app so you can be on holidays and see how full your tank currently is! It also shows a history so you can see how your tanks levels have shifted over the course of the year.
There are a number of addons available for the farmbot monitor, such as a rain gauge to see how much rain you had in your area, a flow pressure indicator so you can check your pump and how much water its pushing through.
There are 2 versions of the farmbot, a cellular version which needs at least 1 consistent bar of reception and a satellite version for areas of poor phone coverage.
*The farmbot requires a annual subscription which includes tech support
Extra Filter Baskets
To catch any debris that could potentially contaminate your supply as water flows into the tank, Pioneer Water Tanks provide a stainless steel filter basket that allows upto four 90mm or two 100mm downpipes to be fitted.
Replacement filter baskets can be purchased if required.
High flow Filter Baskets
We can also supply hi flow filter baskets if your inlet flow is too high for the standard baskets (Shown left).
A fire tree can provide up to 3 outlets for fire fighting use. A typical arrangement is 2x 64mm fittings and a 125-100mm fitting. This is also sometimes known as a suction assembly.
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. We can manufacture a range of antivortex sizes from 50mm to 300mm
65mm STORZ 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. For more information on a fire reserve please check out fire protection page.
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.
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.
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.
