Who is a 150 000L water tank suitable for

Pioneer Water Tanks recommend 150 000L rainwater tanks as the standard tank size required for a rural family of four, or for a couple or family of three looking for a little extra water storage for the home or garden. The 150 000L water tank is also a very popular size among people looking for a large tank for the farm or cattle station.


150 000L water tanks are used by rural Australian families all across the country who rely on rainwater tank as their main water source for household supply, drinking water and to help the gardens stay green and vibrant during the drier months.


Most people purchasing a a rainwater tank this size have little to no access to mains water, meaning they are relying on their water storage to contribute their entire household water supply. Due to this, it is vital to ensure that you have not only a large enough water tank, but also a large enough roof catchment area to obtain the harvested water needed to fill the tank.


To help you to determine if a 150 000L steel water tank is suitable for you, you can consult our water storage calculator (below) to determine how much rainfall you can capture from your roof, and also keep a track of how much water your household is using. For advice on what size tank is best for you, give us a phone call on 1800 999 599.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Pioneer has been behind the manufacture and delivery of water tanks that Australians can rely on for more than 30 years now - including sizes such as 150,000L rainwater tanks -  and they continue to strive to maintain their position at the forefront of innovation and quality in the industry.


No matter if you're after a 150,000L water tank, or a 50,000L water tank, all Pioneer Water Tanks are manufactured in Australia from Australian Zincalume® or Colorbond® Steel direct from BlueScope. Pioneer Water Tanks remains Australian owned and operated, and is owned by an Australian family business.


The Pioneer V-Lock® steel tank wall profile is specially designed with water storage in mind, not only providing superior strength and longevity, but also protecting your liner from the stretching and stress that can come with the filling and emptying of a regular corrugated wall panel.


The delivery of every 150,000L water tank Pioneer manufactures comes with our 20/20 Warranty, which is a 20 year conditional structural warranty as well as a 20 year conditional warranty against water leakage.

You Can Never Have Too Much Water

Water Catching and Usage Factors To Consider

Fire Reserve

This is a volume of water that is always readily available in the event of fighting fire.  Commonly this can be up to 20,000 litres.

Irrigation

When looking to irrigate, factors such as water source, harvesting capacity, and usage volume will all need to be considered.

Water Source

Harvesting water from a roof, filling up from a bore or dam will impact the size of tank that will be most optimal for you.

Harvesting Factors

The size of your roof catchment area, in addition to your annual rainfall will determine how much water you can harvest.

Domestic Usage Volume

Having an idea of what domestic functions you intend to connect to your tank and how often each will be used will be advantageous.

Total Volume

It's better to have water and not need it, than to need water and not have it.  It may pay to install a bigger tank to mitigate running out of water.

Water Tank Colours

The most typical location for a 150 000 litre water tank is right next to or near the house, capturing the water that may run off of the roof of the home or any nearby sheds and garages.


Due to this, many people consider the colour of their rainwater tank as an important factor, and is why Pioneer Water Tanks offers a range of both standard and non-standard Colorbond® colours in as well as the more traditional Zincalume® finish.
