AQUALINER®aqualiner water tank liner  

Our Australian made AQUALINER® is custom engineered for the sole purpose of safe and secure water storage. Its BPA-free multi-layered material with internal reinforced fabric weave meets global safety and food standards, ensuring the ultimate peace of mind for the secure storage of safe, clean, fresh and chemical-free water.

Pioneer Water Tanks’ AQUALINER® is double seam welded for Australia’s tough condition. Our innovative double seam welded AQUALINER® provides the ultimate protection at liner joints, preventing leaks, drips, seepage or wicking of your precious water. Water seepage from your liner can encourage white ants or invasive roots, so insist on a double seam welded liner.

150mm Bellmouth Overflow water tank overflow

Our 150mm diameter overflow connection and down piping is the largest in the market.

Designed to meet the Plumbing Industry Board's requirements for an overflow greater than the infill rate of water. This means you can avoid costly problems associated with a tank overflow. Pioneer Water Tanks’ one-piece PVC wall connection prevents water coming into contact with any steel around the overflow penetration. The need to use any chemical based sealant is also eliminated to protect your potable water supply against possible contamination.

 

Swivel Foot Roof Connectionswivel foot on truss

The exclusive heavy duty Pioneer Water Tank roof connects to the body of the tank through a unique swivel foot roof connector and high-tensile bolts. Offering safe and reliable load resistance and tie-down of the roof means you don’t have to worry about the performance of your tank roof in even the most extreme conditions.

 

 

8-80 V-LOCK®8-80VLOCK for Pioneer Water Tank

Pioneer Water Tanks’ modern and unique 8-80 V-LOCK® wall profile provides the strength of corrugated steel and maintains perfect support to the liner moulded to the inside of the tank wall. The 8-80 V-LOCK® design maximises the strength of your tank to ensure it stays in shape when full or empty whilst minimising liner stress.

Levetator level indicator

Water Level Indicator

Know exactly how much water you have in store at a glance with a water level indicator attached to the exterior of your tank. You can choose between the traditional float and pulley system or a wireless system in a range of colours to keep an eye on water levels at any time.The marker goes up or down with the water by using a counter weight system. A heavy duty commercial grade gauge is also available for cases where public access may be available. (Optional Extra)

 

water tank reserve fittings

Reserve Fitting on Tank

We can fit an extra valve on the wall of your tank which will prevent the total loss of water in the event a pipe breaks or there is another incident away from the tank. When the water level is well above the reserve fitting, you can turn off the bottom valve and run the tank off the top valve to control the amount of water lost in the event of a burst pipe or similar.  

 

Tank Pad Requirements

tank pad preperation

Tank Pads are to be constructed at least one metre wider than the tank diameter and at least 100mm thick,on completion of tank installation a gravel perimeter needs to be spread around the perimeter of tank at least 100mm and.5m around the tank to help prevent erosion and rabbits burrowing.

Please ensure that the base is clean and free of sharp objects as the liner comes into direct contact with the bluestone dust. A level tank pad is important for installation and the ongoing use of your new tank.

We can arrange your tank pad installation and gravel if required at the time of tank installation. Tanks can be installed on a concrete pad if required, but additional materials are required at extra cost, so please let us know if you tank will be going on a concrete pad before order is placed.

Please contact us with any questions as incorrect pads can incur extra charges to rectify.
