Pioneer Water Tanks

Durable Water Storage Solutions for the Pacific Northwest

Pioneer Water Tanks offer storage for off-grid water systems. Municipal water grids supply homes with pre-treated, pressurized water distribution, and going off-grid requires replacement. Pioneer Water Tanks are configurable for well water, rainwater harvesting systems, fire protection, and more.

 

The estimated average that a person uses is around 80-100-gallons of water per day. Some areas require a reserve for fire protection on top of daily use. Pioneer Water Tanks offer the ability to configure accessories for fire protection on top of daily needs.

Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive BPA-free AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner is NSF-61 certified for potable drinking water. Get started on a quote for a water storage solution for your needs.

      Clean Water Storage Tanks

      Pioneer Water Tanks are approved for use in California, Oregon, and Washington for fire protection and drinking water storage. Combining several uses into one dual-use water tank saves money as compared to buying two separate water storage systems. Our standpipe or external fitting options divert the additional water supply to ensure that it doesn’t affect the required mandated usable water capacity for fire protection. We offer commercial accessory options to comply with local requirements.

        Rainwater Harvesting as a Water Source

        Rainwater harvesting is a sustainable water source that is legal in California since the passing of Assembly Bill 1750 The Rainwater Capture Act of 2012 (link). Off-grid rainwater harvesting provides a clean water source. Pioneer Water Tanks exceed all requirements for rainwater storage applications for the California State Water Resources Board.

        Rainwater Harvesting in Oregon

        Oregon Building Codes Division approval of rainwater harvesting systems as a statewide alternative method of providing water for non-potable uses Statewide Alternate Methods are approved by the Division administrator in consultation with the appropriate advisory board. The advisory board’s review is limited to the technical and scientific facts of the proposal.

        In addition:
        – Building officials shall approve the use of any material, design, or method of construction addressed in a statewide alternate method.
        – The decision to use a statewide alternate method is at the discretion of the designer
        – Statewide alternate methods do not limit the authority of the building official to consider other proposed alternate methods encompassing the same subject matter

        Rainwater Harvesting in Washington

        Rainwater harvesting is legal in Washington from a building rooftop with the water utilized on the property for outdoor, non-potable use. The State of Washington Department of Ecology stated that rainwater harvesting doesn’t require a water permit as long as a few conditions don’t apply. Rainwater must be used on the property where it was collected. Rainwater can only be collected from existing building rooftops that have another purpose other than harvesting water.

        – The rainwater system cannot negatively affect existing water rights in the area.
        – Local restrictions may be developed to govern new systems, including for potable applications.
        Washington Revised Code §36.89.080 offers the ability to reduce surface and stormwater fees by 10-50% that utilize rainwater harvesting. Systems are regulated by the Washington State Building Code: Chapter 16 Non-potable rainwater catchment systems.

        ZINCALUME® STEEL IS TESTED AND PROVEN TO LAST LONGER

        Only the highest quality Zincalume® and Colorbond® steel are used in Pioneer Water Tanks, providing unmatched durability that no other tank manufacturer can offer- that’s why Pioneer Tanks last longer than any other brand. Pioneer Water Tanks come standard in Zincalume® Steel with your option of upgrading to a wide selection of Colorbond® steel color options.

        Next-generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 introduces magnesium into the aluminum-zinc alloy coating, which improves galvanic protection by activating the aluminum. The result is more effective corrosion resistance. BlueScope Steel research and testing have found that the addition of 2% magnesium is the optimum level of corrosion performance and coating integrity. Along with a capital investment of over $100 million to facilitate the required manufacturing capability, BlueScope Steel can now produce next-generation ZINCALUME® steel AM125 with even greater durability and a more efficient protective coating mass.

        To ensure the durability and reputation of next-generation ZINCALUME® steel, BlueScope Steel conducted a comprehensive testing program that included a series of accelerated laboratory corrosion tests as well as a strong emphasis on real-world outdoor exposure tests. A thorough and rigorous testing program ensured that the new product provided optimum performance.

        For families across the world relying on the quality of tank water for their daily use and consumption, this means for the first time, being able to enjoy the additional peace of mind that comes with fresher, purer and cleaner water, thanks to the use of antimicrobial technology on the inside lining of Pioneer water tanks.

         

        The AQUALINER® Fresh is manufactured utilizing a patented three-layer process that adheres to a PP Multifilament Base with a Polyethylene Film on the surface.

        • The PP base, PP/PE Coating, and PE Film are all bound together through a process called Extrusion Coating.

        • The PP Multifilament Base provides strength, flexibility, and dimensional stability.

        • The PE Film provides toughness, water-resistance, and heat seal characteristics.

        • Sanitized Technology is inherent in the Black Polyethylene Film that touches the water.

        “The AQUALINER® Fresh tank liner is the culmination of Pioneer’s 30 years’ local and international experience in water storage and a result of our continuous drive to improve the way we store water for the benefit of our customers.

        Ensuring the quality of your water is incredibly important!

        Pioneer Water Tanks Foundations

        The foundation for Pioneer Water Tanks depends on the location and application of the water storage project. Pioneer Water Tanks may have the option to sit on a clean sand pad base or may be required to be anchored to a concrete ring beam depending on the local authority.

        This short video shows a concrete ring beam being installed for a 51,785-Gallon Pioneer Water Tank in Nothern California.

        Concrete ring beam outline for Pioneer Water Tanks

        The ring beam drawings specify the size, number and spacing of the reinforcing bars and ligatures to be used as well as the MPA rating for the concrete. Ring beams should be as level as possible and have no more than +/- 1/16” over any 5’0” (+/- 2mm over any 2m) of the circumference at the tank wall position and +/- 1/8” (+/- 4mm) over the entire ring beam. A survey chart will need to be completed and returned to your local installer for approval before the construction is started.

        Concrete ring beam for Pioneer Water Tanks

        The local Pioneer Water Tanks installer needs to ensure that foundation conditions are adequate. All water storage systems are subject to the local authority requirements so Pioneer Water Tanks also recommends local installers adhere to that authority for the tank location.
