Two Pioneer Water Tanks are anchored above Avalon Harbor on Catalina Island. The beautiful escape of Catalina was developed as a tourist destination by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr in the 1920s. Current preservation is through the Catalina Island Conservancy.
The efficient two-day installation by Pioneer Water Tanks America and J.C. Construction impressed the project contact. The compact pallet packaging of Pioneer Water Tanks helped with the remote location.
Both tanks store fresh water pumped up from a well. The tanks supply potable drinking water as well as act as a reserve for firefighting for the Wrigley mansion and several nearby properties.
The Wrigley Mansion is a bed and breakfast with an official listing as a California historical building. The two XL 04/02 Pioneer Water Tanks are placed prominently but do not interfere with the impressive view.
The proven corrosion resistance of the ZINCALUME® Steel tank body of Pioneer Water Tanks withstands the coastal environment. ZINCALUME® Steel has a long-term service life that outlasts galvanized steel by 200-400%. BlueScope Steel actively tests ZINCALUME® Steel, including a salt-water spray test that mimics the oceanside environment that this project has. (Learn more about ZINCALUME® Steel)
