Pioneer Water Tanks Access Hatch

Access Hatch

Includes our standard lockable roof access hatch for regular tank inspection or cleaning. We also offer multiple sidewall access hatches as well as platform options for commercial projects.

Pioneer Anodes Magnesium

Sacrificial Anodes

One set of sacrificial magnesium anodes for additional corrosion protection are included. Made with magnesium, the anodes take on corrosion from the tank through electrolysis, much how anodes work for boats. They prolong the life of the tank and should be replaced every five to ten years based on the conditions.

Pioneer Water Tanks bolt strip covers

Bolt Strip Covers

Fully concealed structural bolts provide you with a smooth and tamper-free panel joint. These unique vertical seams reinforce the strength of the tank and increase the integrity of your water tank.

Standard Ladder

All Pioneer tanks come with one standard ladder, bracket, and access hatch. The ladder can be removed from the bracket or kept on for easy access.

Standard Outlet

One standard polyethylene outlet and shut off valve is included with each Pioneer Water Tank. It can be easily connected to most piping with the option to replace it with our full line of outlets and valves.

Pioneer Water Tank overflow pipe

Overflow Pipe

Our six-inch diameter overflow connection and down piping are the largest in the market. Designed to exceed overflow requirements for multiple applications, the infill rate won’t exceed capacity to avoid costly issues.

Removable Basket

One thousand-count mesh basket is included for filtered water intake that filters out leaves and other debris contaminates.

Tank Liner

Exclusive Pioneer Aqualiner© tank liner is included to protect your water, BPA and taste-free with a 65-year lifespan.

The floating ball is made of polyethylene and the filter is stainless steel that threads into the 2-Inch Pioneer standard tank outlet.

Liquidator 2 water level gauge

Liquidator 2 Water Level Gauge

Cement Ring Beam Site Preparation, for Commercial and Fire Protection Applications

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.

Requirements Include:

  • Foundations conditions are adequate
  • Safe bearing capacity should equal or exceed 150kPa
  • The founding materials must be stable (i.e. landfill or active clay may be unsuitable)
  • Most sands and gravels that have been compacted to a reasonable level will be adequate, provided there’s soil beneath.
  • Before you start preparing your site for installation of your tank, Acer Water Tanks also recommends you contact your local authority to see what regulations or restrictions are in place.

Example of a cement ring beam for a Pioneer Water Tank model XL40/02 with a capacity of 51,785 gallons

Site preparation is very important. See table below for minimum sand requirements per tank.

  • Clean, inert sand free of rock and debris is required.
  • Tank pad must be level prior to construction.
  • No compacting of tank pad is required.
  • For sloping sites, please make sure adequate retaining and drainage is provided before and after completion of the tank.
  • Place an inert anti-erosion control around the base of the tank after construction.
  • The best method to ensure your sand pad is level is to use a transit level. Spirit levels, laser levels, and transit levels are all excellent tools to ensure a level pad.
  • If you have difficulties or do not understand, please contact your dealer or Acer Water Tanks Inc.
  • Sites out of level or not prepared correctly may be rejected or incur a charge to rectify.

Pioneer Water Tanks are designed for longevity with a few items of owner maintenance that continues the quality of water storage that is expected.

  • Every yearly quarter, the tank owner or their nominated contractor should do a visual inspection.
  • The optimal inspection time is prior to the first rains and every three months thereafter.
  • Ensure that the aggregate around the tank is dissipating the runoff water as it should be. If the sand base appears to be eroding, backfill the aggregate immediately and fill it around the tank wall. Continue to check the aggregate is dissipating the water runoff.

  • The tank perimeter needs to stay clear of vegetation with a suitable and safe vegetation deterrent.
  • Check for signs of leakage. If there are any signs of leakage, report immediately for efficient repair.
  • The roof should be kept clean of debris. Walking on the tank roof isn’t recommended, instead, use a long-handled or extendable broom to sweep leaves and debris from the tank roof.
  • Lift out the roof mounted filter basket and clean out the debris. When the cover is placed back in, ensure that the cover is placed correctly.
  • If the system has a rain diverter (if fitted),  unscrew the inspection cap to clean out the collected debris and replace the cap.
  • Check for evidence of pest/vermin activity in the area. Any sign of activity or damage needs to be attended to immediately. Liner damage caused by termites or vermin is not covered by the warranty. If it’s necessary, treat the perimeter of the tank with a suitable and safe pest/vermin deterrent, following the advice of a qualified professional.

 

  • The sacrificial magnesium anodes were buried underground, close to the tank. Electrolysis diverts corrosion to the magnesium that is a more reactive metal than the Zincalme steel tank walls. The magnesium anodes gradually corrode while leaving the tank walls intact.
  • These magnesium anodes have a 10-year life expectancy, that may be reduced in a more corrosive environment (such as coastal and industrial areas). The sacrificial anodes need to be replaced within the 10-year interval to meet the warranty conditions.
  • If there are signs of minor corrosion on the tank, immediately treat the affected area and paint over with zinc rich paint. If there is evidence of major corrosion, please contact Acer Water Tanks, Inc.
  • Anodes can be purchased for replacement with Acer Water Tanks, Inc or your local contractor with whom you made your initial purchase with.

 

  • Insert video of anode replacement.
  • Cleaning tank panels are recommended with a garden hose and a soft bristled brush.
    Hose the tank panels down and use the brush to remove any dust, grime and salt spray.
  • If the sand pad or aggregate is disturbed, it must be rectified immediately.
  • We recommend poly/PVC fittings and downpipes exposed to sunlight be
    painted with UV resistant paint to extend their lifespan.
  • Acer Water Tanks, Inc. does not recommend accessing the interior of the tank on your own. If your tank needs cleaning, engage a qualified tank cleaner or contact your local distributor. If the liner is accidentally damaged during cleaning, contact your local distributor to arrange repairs.
  • Insurance. Now is the time to contact your insurer to have your Pioneer water tank included in your home insurance policy.
