    Watch a 50,000-gallon Pioneer Water Tank installation in Humboldt County, California. The tank was designed to meet wind, seismic and snow load forces and was built on a concrete ring beam foundation using integrated anchors to secure the tank to the concrete.


    Pioneer Water Tanks sand pad preparation

    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.


    1. The sand pad must be level, stable and free of debris before construction.

    2. The sand pad must be at least 7’ larger than the diameter of your tank.

    3. For sloping tank sites, ensure adequate drainage to divert runoff away from the tank wall.

    4. Aggregate must be placed around the circumference of your tank to stop erosion and comply with warranty conditions*.

    5. A retaining wall may be required to maintain pad integrity*.

    6. Your tank should not be left empty for an extended time. A minimum load of water (10% of tank capacity) should be placed in your tank after 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.

    Commercial Pioneer Water Tanks America


    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Our standard range of tanks are available from 5,000 to 100,000-Gallons or can be custom-built up to one million gallons.
