Resorts World Bimini is a 750-acre premier luxury beachfront resort that spans nearly half the island of Bimini. The resort boasts the largest marina complex in the Bahamas and is the center of the sports fishing capital of the world. The resort is located on the westernmost island of the Bahamas, 50 miles from Florida, directly affected by cyclonic weather.


Richard Dunfield of Pioneer Water Tanks America worked with the resort and engineers to specify a Cyclonic XLE 10/05 model. The Industratex® 420 liner utilized in the tank is NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certified. The Industratex® 420 liner is secured to the tank wall at multiple points to provide optimal support.

    Pioneer Water Tanks crate delivery and onsite installation enable a quick turnaround to clean water storage. Water storage is ready to go immediately after the installation inspection is approved in a Pioneer Water Tank. Concrete water tanks installation times can last for several weeks up to months, on top of 28-days or longer curing time.


    Concrete can take 28 days or more to be fully cured, on top of several weeks or months of installation time.

    Pioneer Water Tanks are usable after installation that can take a day to a week. 

    Most concrete water tanks require an expensive full-slab base with rows of concrete footings under the tank structure. 

    Our network builds Pioneer Water Tanks on either a residential prepared sand/rock aggregate pad or a Reinforced Concrete Ring Beam Foundation. The Pioneer ring beam is a relatively simple and time-efficient base to construct at a fraction of the cost of a concrete slab.  

    Liner rubs against concrete and breaks down over time

    PIONEER V-LOCK® structure is the strength of corrugated steel and maintains support for the liner

    Recyclable – can be broken down and used again

    Recyclable and moveable – ZINCALUME® steel is utilized again and again

    Requires heavy machinery and expensive delivery for precast concrete tanks, cement materials

    Pioneer Water Tanks have crate delivery to the project site. Installers never need to use heavy machinery or weld when building Pioneer Water Tanks. 

    Tank owners are unable to move or alter concrete tanks without compromising tank integrity. 

    Pioneer Water Tanks are moveable and customizable even after the installation is complete. 

    Concrete tanks are known to crack from shifting soil, weathering, extreme events, etc. 

    The structural integrity of ZINCALUME® steel Pioneer Water Tanks is proven to outlast intensive environments and extreme weather events, including fire immersion.

    Water vapor leaves concrete surfaces based on the Moisture Vapor Emission Rate (MVER), concrete tank walls have a water loss. 

    Water is stored within the AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner, protected within the sealed Pioneer Water Tank body. The sealed roof of a Pioneer Water Tank helps to prevent water loss.   



    The Pioneer Ring Beam represents 80% savings compared to the cost of an equal-capacity concrete water tank foundation. Residential Pioneer Water Tanks also have the cost-saving option of a prepared sand/rock aggregate pad. Concrete water tanks require expensive full-slab bases with intricate rows of concrete footings. The cost and time frame comparison are unmatched even from the start with the base construction.

    PIONEER V-LOCK® Tank Profile design is unique to Pioneer Water Tanks. The proprietary corrugation profile enables maximum strength while supporting the AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner. PIONEER V-LOCK® tank design prevents wicking as well as provides multiple connection points down the liner for support.

    The waterproofing of concrete water tanks breaks down over time into the water supply. Concrete tank walls rub against liners that cause the need for repair or replacement. Some concrete tanks lack an interior coating that can affect the water quality and lead to water loss.

    ZINCALUME® Steel recycles potentially endlessly. The engineering of Pioneer Water Tanks enables deconstruction for moving to a different location. Only accredited providers can deconstruct and install Pioneer Water Tanks to keep the tank within warranty.

    Concrete is recyclable and requires specialized machinery to break the tank down and make it into aggregate.

    The engineering and durability of the ZINCALUME® Steel components of Pioneer Water Tanks enable water storage solutions in intensive environments. Pioneer Water Tanks engineering withstands earthquake zones, cyclonic regions, and wildfire emergencies.

    The flexible steel walls help during earthquakes to allow for movement without breaking the Pioneer Water Tank. The design of the internal liner and tank shell enables them to move independently of one another. This flexibility allows Pioneer Water Tanks to withstand emergencies where a non-flexible structure of concrete water tanks can fail.

    Pioneer Water Tanks offer a usable water supply during and after an emergency where a concrete tank will often fail. The design and construction of concrete water tanks determine how well they stand during an emergency.

    While water doesn’t easily pass through concrete, vapor moves at a rate depending on the porosity and permeability of the concrete. The amount of water loss from concrete tanks also depends on the location. Pioneer Water Tanks safely store water within the AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner.

    Pioneer Water Tanks keep water fresh and clean


    The BPA-free, NSF-61 certified tank liner is protected within the ZINCALUME® steel tank body and sealed roof. The sealed water supply within the five-layered AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner reduces water loss to that of only natural evaporation.

            Pioneer Water Tanks have been developing water storage solutions for the harsh conditions of Australia for over 30 years. Australia’s extreme fire-prone areas and remote communities without water mains make for durable water needs. Pioneer Water Tanks are implemented for fire protection applications throughout the county for the advantages of the engineered system.

            Pioneer Water Tanks in Australia provide water storage solutions for fire protection



            The Advantages of Pioneer Water Tanks



            Pioneer Water Tanks are extensively designed for durability and corrosion resistance. The Zincalume® Steel tank body and AQUALINER® Fresh liner design of Pioneer Water Tanks allow for short term resistance to flames directly on the tank body itself. After a fire immersion event, it should be noted that Zincalume® and COLORBOND® Steel have accelerated corrosion and structural degradation.

            One key benefit of investing in a Pioneer Water Tank is that even after a significant fire, the water tank will still be usable for several months and during the event itself. The time after fire devastation is when water is desperately needed for animal watering, etc. Even if the Pioneer Water Tank is severely burnt, the water can be used directly after the fire. For Pioneer Water Tanks that have minor damages on one side of the tank, the panels may be able to be replaced and the liner can be repaired or replaced.

            This Pioneer Water Tank remained ready to use after the recent bushfire disaster.


            Plastic water tanks, known as poly tanks or polyethylene are known to melt with fire exposure and cannot last with fire immersion. During a fire event, the water may not be usable since the structure itself is easily destroyed. “Polyethylene (plastic) constructed tanks fared worst under all levels of exposure.. (1 Bushfire CRC).”

            Rural Australian ranch Pioneer Water Tanks are still standing and ready to use after a bushfire disaster while the poly water tanks melted.

            The Australian Bushfire CRC research on intense fire devastation is cited in American fire-prone areas as an authoritative source. The Del Norte County California Fire Safe Plan states, “There are more and more options for inexpensively storing water. Cisterns—a catchment to collect rainwater—are becoming increasingly popular. Several websites are describing how to make one yourself, start with a search for “cistern.” Low-cost water tanks are also available. Pioneer tanks from Australia are now seen throughout the North Coast ( (2. Del Norte Fire Safe Plan).”

            The 2006 Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre (Bushfire CRC) and CSIRO project revealed that Pioneer Water Tanks can withstand 30-minutes of full fire immersion without losing structural integrity and without water loss.


            “This valuable research contribution to bushfire safety and preparedness provides community educators with detailed information that informs the fire safety planning of residents. This is particularly important post-Black Saturday as residents in fire-prone areas are eager to purchase defensive equipment including water tanks and are seeking from firefighters advice on the ‘best’ type. The research identifies the structural integrity issues of water tanks under a range of fire impact scenarios which in turn leads to recommendations regarding fuel clearance and the lessening of the vulnerability of tanks….” – Russell Taylor, AFSM, Group Manager Executive Support, NSW Rural Fire Service


            Pioneer Water Tanks fire protection applications for ranches, farms, home environments


            Pioneer Water Tanks are the premier water storage solution provider in Australia and around the world. Having usable water available for fire emergencies is a top priority in ranch, farming, and home environments. Fire protection and suppression systems are designed for the property and location requirements.


            A typical fire protection system would include a Pioneer Water Tank with a fire outlet that creates a fire reserve supply of water. The average fire reserve for a ranch environment is 20,000-liters (5,283-gallons).

            “This research indicates that steel construction tanks have the greatest chance of retaining their structural integrity and preventing water loss under bushfire conditions, while polyethylene tanks are at risk of total failure when adjacent combustible items are present, such as heavy forest fuels, fences, structures or even other polyethylene tanks.” – Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre (Bushfire CRC)

            > Go to the Full Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre Report on Rain Water Tanks in Bushfires


            There are many ways that a water supply is implemented for fire protection including for fire sprinkler systems, to supplement the existing water supply, for the fire response to be able to connect to for easy access.

            “I need to make our rainwater storage work as efficiently as possible to meet our agricultural needs- and also so I don’t have the additional outlay for mains water,” said Gavin from Freeling South Australia (SA)
            “We wanted to customize our tanks for fire – this was important for us as we needed to not only draw water for agricultural use but fires as well.”

            Read the full article:


            The Australian network of dealers and installers are an integral part of their communities. After a bushfire event, authorized providers perform Pioneer Water Tank inspections. On Kangaroo Island, Pioneer Water Tanks SA (Southern Australia), performed tank inspections after the recent bushfire devastation in 2019.



            “That satisfying feeling you get when your second inspection on Kangaroo Island after the devastating bushfires is a customer telling you the only reason his house is still standing is because of his Pioneer Water Tank.” – Ben Wise, with Pioneer Water Tanks SA


            Extreme bushfire conditions in Australia require plans in place. Six days before Black Saturday, February 7, 2009, a family home fire sprinkler system that was recently installed filmed the inspection. The devastating bushfires went across the state of Victoria on what is now called Black Saturday, and the family filmed the system being used to defend their home.


            The West Coast of the United States, in particular California, is also experiencing heightened fire disasters. Pioneer Water Tanks are utilized in similar applications for homes, farms, vineyards, commercial properties, and more throughout the state. Pioneer Water Tanks America operates with a local network of authorized company providers and accredited installation experts.

            Pioneer Water Tanks commercial and industrial fire protection applications


            All new commercial buildings in Australia have a dedicated fire reserve tank that follows the Design standard AS2419, Australian Standard Code. The AS2304 code describes the required nozzle type and several other extra components with effective capacity relative to the commercial building size.


            Pioneer Water Tanks are utilized for applications such as to fill fire trucks and air support, as the water source for hydrants, to supplement existing water supply, and much more.


            In the state of Victoria, Australia a series of Pioneer Water Tanks provide a fast, steady source of water for fire trucks and air support.

            The engineering personnel and independent consulting engineers provide professional design and support services. The flexibility of configuration for Pioneer Water Tanks means nozzles, fittings and other accessories can be specified according to local requirements.

            The isolation of Australia’s terrain makes for a lack of water distribution outside of major communities and cities. Fire protection and hydrant systems are essential in case of emergencies that may be supplied solely on water tanks. Divine Water Tanks, accredited provider of Pioneer Water Tanks in Queensland, provide water solutions for a variety of applications including necessary fire protection.


            “Divine Water Tanks are proud to have been involved in the upgrade of fire services for 5 schools around SE and Central Queensland. The project included the installation of various Pioneer Fire Water Tanks which formed part of the fire service upgrades.”



            Fire conditions in California, Oregon, and Washington can be comparable to the bushfires in Australia. Pacific Northwest states have similar remote communities without water mains who rely on independent water supplies like having a large-capacity Pioneer Water Tank.

                Why You’ll Never Complain About Your Pioneer Water Tank Being Too Big, with Harvested Rain Solutions in Austin, Texas


                Water storage capacity is the supply available, and nobody ever complains about having too much. On average, one-inch of rainwater collected from a 1,000-square foot roof can yield about 600 gallons. Without the proper storage, rainwater collected above the capacity is drained out through an overflow pipe. 


                Having an above-ground storage tank for a well water system allows the well to work at a lower pressure and surges in use are easily supplied by the storage tank, with the well refilling the tank over a longer period if it’s a lower yield well.  In case of an emergency or for large peak daily use, such as for irrigation, a larger capacity is preferred.


                Preparedness for fire protection systems and backup water storage also benefits with a larger capacity. Pioneer Water Tanks are the premier large capacity water storage solution for residential and commercial needs.

                Fire Protection Water Tank provided by Harvested Rain Solutions for a commercial property in the Austin, Texas area


                Large capacity concrete and welded water tanks require long installation times with heavy equipment. Pioneer Water Tanks installation advantage is in the engineered construction of the bolted, V-LOCK corrugated tank body that secures the exclusive AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner inside to protect the water. The bolt-together construction and roof trussing system enable installations in even the most hard-to-reach areas.


                The cost-efficiency of water storage increases with the capacity so that at a certain point, it just makes more sense to get extra storage for the cost per gallon as compared to a smaller tank. This is why every Pioneer Water Tank owner can tell you that – a tank can never be too big.


                Ron Van Sickle with Harvested Rain Solutions, based in Austin, Texas, has experience with rainwater systems for homes, businesses, and fire protection. Their rainwater system designs include Pioneer Water Tanks for safe, clean storage. The capacity of Pioneer Water Tanks supplies for the needs of the application.


                Sometimes, a rainwater system owner will come back to Harvested Rain Solutions for additional storage that they thought that initially, they wouldn’t need. They end up with two or more Pioneer Water Tanks when they could have had a system designed by Ron with one cost-effective large capacity rainwater tank.

                “We often hear from clients that “a tank that big will never fill up” – only to have them call and tell me they hate seeing water go out the overflow pipe! It is always more cost-effective to order the next size larger tank than it is to add a second tank of any size.” – Ron Van Sickle, owner of Harvested Rain Solutions

                  Oklahoma Pioneer Fire Protection System Provides Easy Access to Water


                  Pioneer Water Tanks America provided a fire protection system for a commercial property in Durant, Oklahoma in September. The project included Ben Pedraza, Innovative Water Solutions, Hydrona LLC and Tank Builders for a coordinated installation.


                  The fire protection system implements an XLE 60/08 Pioneer Water Tank with a 300,000-gallon capacity. The fire protection tank has a 41 feet and eight-inch diameter with a 27 feet and eight-inch tank wall height.

                  The fire protection Pioneer Water Tank includes anti-vortex nozzles for easy access to the water supply in case of an emergency. Fire hoses can be attached swiftly to the approved anti-vortex nozzles. The caged ladder and lockable access hatch are engineered to OSHA requirements for the rare occasion that the tank needs to be entered or examined from the top. The supplemented water supply tank was required by the local authority because of inadequate fire flow. The Pioneer Water Tank is now ready to supply water at the required pressure for firefighting.

                  The coordinated installation achieved the project with the proprietary Pioneer Water Tanks jacking system that doesn’t require the use of heavy machinery. This efficient installation process reduces the count of workers and expensive equipment needed.

                  The proprietary jacking system can be seen lifting the bottom of the tank during the installation. The next ring is bolted on as the installation progresses.


                  Pioneer Water Tanks America supplies NFPA 22 compliant turnkey and custom fire protection water tanks along with our local dealer and installation network. Pioneer Water Tank systems have the option to include engineering submittal drawings as well as engineer wet-stamped project papers for permitting.

Our full lines of commercial accessory options can be added to comply with local fire authority requirements and ensure that your water is ready for emergencies.

                    Rainwater has become a sustainable water source for many applications. NFPA 13 A.23.21 stipulates that recycled or reclaimed water that has been properly analyzed for quality, is adequate for fire protection use. We will present successful past projects and general steps to implementing rainwater for fire protection.
