We Help with Permitting
Pioneer Water Tanks offer optional engineering packages for permitted water storage tanks for multiple applications.
CEMENT RING BEAM SITE PREPARATION
Concrete ring beams are used for commercial and some rural and light industrial water tanks to support the wall and also to hold the tank down during storms and cyclones. Ring beams may also be specified for tanks that are to be constructed on aggressive, acidic soils or where there is a risk of water or wind erosion of the foundation materials.
Each model of Pioneer Water Tank has an exact cement ring beam dimensions and details that are outlined in our engineering packages. At the time of your order, a specific ring beam drawing will be issued for the project requirements. It’s recommended that there is strict adherence to these specifications for the best performance of the tank.
This short video shows a cement ring beam being installed for a 51,785-Gallon Pioneer Water Tank in Nothern California.
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.
It is very important for the local Pioneer Water Tanks installer 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.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY FOR WATER TANK INSTALLATION
Before most water tanks can be installed, a cement ring beam or a stable sand pad foundation must be prepared.
There are some important things to consider when selecting your tank site and preparing the pad.
The sand pad must be level, stable and free of debris prior to construction.
The sand pad must be at least 6’ larger than the diameter of your tank.
For sloping tank sites, ensure adequate drainage to divert runoff away from the tank wall.
Aggregate must be placed around the circumference of your tank to stop erosion and comply with warranty conditions*.
A retaining wall may be required to maintain pad integrity*.
Your tank should not be left empty for an extended period of time. A minimum load of water (10% of tank capacity) should be placed in your tank at the completion of construction.
Before you start preparing your site for installation of your water tank, Pioneer Water Tanks also recommends you contact your local authority to see if there are any regulations or restrictions in place.
Some Pioneer Water Tank projects need or prefer a cement ring beam, learn more about the installation.
TIME SAVING INSTALLATIONS ON PROJECT SITE
Our North American wide dealer and installer network provide comprehensive project management and coordination of all aspects of your project. Pioneer Water Tanks are backed with detailed engineering drawings that can be provided per project, including plans for the cement ring beam or sand pad.
The expereinced, efficient and professional installation teams are trained in safe methods of work within the strictest of client site requirements.
Our procedures provide for an ease of installation, less time on site, minimal infrastructure and construction personnel.
Some larger capacity and or taller wall height Pioneer Water Tank installations may require the proprietary jacking system.
Prior to starting construction with the proprietary jacking system, the following important points must be given consideration.
• Everyone who is involved in the building of the tank must be given through instructions on their responsibilities regarding the construction and safe working practices.
• The ring beam must be constructed to Pioneer Water Tanks specifications and has it been allowed to cure fully before starting construction.
• Tanks should never be built in very windy conditions, as this will increase the potential for personal injury and damage to components and equipment.
• If you are stopping work because of strong winds make sure that all loose items are secured.
• The jack base plates must be fully supported on the ring beam and not overhang the edge of the concrete.
• Check that the mechanical anchors are installed as per the instructions supplied and have been fully tightened before operating the jacking system.
• Only the specified grade (8.8) bolts are to be used to connect the lifting brackets to the tank wall.
• Tanks should never be left supported on jacks at the end of a shift. Tanks must be lowered down onto the ring beam, although it is advisable to keep some tension on the winch cables to give added stability to the tank wall.

There are many things to consider when purchasing a water tank. The quality of the materials and the way the tank is constructed ensures the maximum longevity of your water tank. A Pioneer Water Tank features top grade fittings and fixtures to ensure your tank will stand the test of time. Take a moment to discover the difference:
The first antimicrobial tank liner in the world, our state-of the art five-layer Aqualiner Fresh® keeps your water fresher for longer with embedded Sanitized® Silver technology. With a life expectancy of 65 years, the Aqualiner Fresh® is designed to fit the Pioneer Water Tank to prevent contamination.
