    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. Water storage tanks may require a permit based on the local authority and location of the project. Building permits may require additional or supplemented water storage that will need an engineering package with a wet-stamped cover letter per project.


    Pioneer Water Tanks America works with professional independent consultant engineers for design and support services. Our water storage systems can come standard or can be configured to the project permit requirements. The experienced, efficient and professional installation teams are trained in safe methods of work within the strictest of client site requirements. Our Dealer Direct network provides local service, accredited with Pioneer Water Tanks.

    Our procedures provide for ease of installation, less time on site, minimal infrastructure and construction personnel.

    Local authority requirements ensure that water produced and distributed is safe to drink. Depending on the project site location and application, different accessories and permitting requirements to come into place. If the water system provides water to the public, it may be considered a public water system depending on the state and federal regulations.


    Pioneer Water Tanks manufacture with NSF 61 certified materials for drinking water and test using third-party ISO regulators. Our water storage systems are backed with engineering for permitting with state regulatory agencies across North America. Our dealer and installation network provides complete project management from the design to the accredited installations.

    Pioneer Water Tanks have the option to be upgraded for design to withstand an effective seismic acceleration coefficient of up to 0.7 (refer Tables 2 & 3) and the seismic loads developed as per AS2304 which has the same methodology as AWWA D 103-97 “Factory Coated Bolted Steel Tanks for Water Storage”.


    Pioneer Water Tanks XLE-S series tanks are designed to withstand a maximum uniformly distributed live load or snow load of 1.0kPa (20psf) or a concentrated load of 1.4kN (300lbs) with the addition of internal and external columns and diagonal truss bracing. Roof support structures (trusses) are designed to accommodate maintenance and construction footfalls in the vicinity of the roof trusses. Roof activity shall be limited to installation and/or maintenance purposes. Roof structures shall not be altered or re-roofed without professional engineering advice.

    (1) Recommended concrete compressive strength is 17MPa (2,500psi).

    (2) Minimum allowable bearing capacity is 72kPa (1,500psf).

    (3) The foundation must be embedded a minimum 300mm (12″) below existing grade to bear upon undisturbed native soils. If topsoil, organic materials, or uncontrolled fill soils are encountered, then the footing trench shall be over-excavated to remove those materials until undisturbed native soils are encountered. The trench can then be backfilled with concrete or engineered structural fill.

    (4) Should there be any doubt about the stability or strength of the bearing soils, or if corrosive soil conditions are suspected, site-specific professional engineering advice should be sought.
    (5) Refer to Drawing “XL50-RB-23-001” for additional requirements for the XLE-S 50/03 snow load tank.


    Expand the functionality of your water storage system with our commercial accessory options. Pioneer Water Tanks can be configured to the project requirements with the option to add our engineering package for permitting.

    Pioneer Water Tanks are engineered to NFPA standards for water storage for fire protection. The tank body and roof are made of Zincalume® Steel, which is proven to withstand fire immersion. The tank’s firefighting adapters and nozzles are compatible with fire hoses across North America.


    Pioneer Water Tanks can be configured for cyclonic and seismic conditions, as well as heavy industrial zones. Additional accessories are available for different compliance needs. Outfit your tank with anti-vortex fittings and firefighting adapters for quick access during a fire emergency.

      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.
