Merriwa Water Storage Challenges

While many people across our dry country delight in the sight of rain, changing weather conditions, and modern infrastructure have led to increasing cases of stormwater runoff and flash flooding.

Setting up a rainwater tank and adequate guttering can help relieve struggling stormwater systems from some of the rainfall, and helping to decrease the likelihood of flash flooding.

If a downpour deposits 100mm of rainfall in Merriwa in a 24-hour period, just 100 homes equipped with water tanks can keep 2 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.

Bushfire e-book

Outperforming all comers in bushfire conditions.

Regrettably, due to most of Australia's climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Merriwa is no different. Despite most of the region's rainfall coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can easily cause brushfires.

A Pioneer Water Tank performed better than the competition in bushfire simulation when testing was done by the Bushfire and National Hazards CRC in partnership with the CSIRO.

All other tanks tested either melted or split, causing them to lose valuable water, however, the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water after being exposed to the full 30-minute fire front, which could prove crucial to fire fighting efforts.

While a water tank will still prove adequate for watering gardens or lawns, if it has been exposed to fire, it is highly recommended that you get the tank water tested as soon as possible to ensure that it is still safe for residential use.

The Merriwa Climate

Merriwa, like most of the North West Slopes, hosts a subtropical climate warm to hot summers and cool winters.

Precipitation is consistent year round in Merriwa - peaking in the summer months - with an annual average of 613.9mm.


Merriwa is a pastoral region, with surrounding properties primarily used for wool sheep, however there is also a prominent pony club and horse breeding industry.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference.

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner.

Proven to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in your water tank, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner available on the market, and a Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive.

Utilising Sanitized ® technology, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner has the antibacterial qualities of silver woven into the tank liner.

The most scientifically advanced, cleanest and strongest liner available on the market, this is an industry-leading product, made up of five distinct layers to protect and store your water.

Pioneer V-Lock® tank wall profile

The Pioneer V-Lock ® tank wall profile, also exclusive to Pioneer Water Tanks, has been designed with the sole function of water storage.

The V-Lock profile is designed both for strength and to secure the tank liner, by preventing stretching and wear, and the sheets are engineered to the ideal thickness for each panel, meaning we put the steel where it's needed most.

Don't just take our word for it, the design is so sound, that it won an Australian Design Award for its strength and appearance.

Australian made water tanks - Merriwa local service

Pioneer Water Tanks has the ability to provide truly local service to all Australians, no matter where they are based, thanks to the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network, comprised of more than fifty experienced water tank dealers.

Pioneer Water Tanks is proud to work with All Seasons Irrigation, H2O Tanks & Liners, and Civcon Water Services in the areas around Merriwa, all qualified tank installers who are able to assist with all your water storage needs.

We make sure that our dealers are of the highest quality, as we understand that a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Merriwa Historical Fact

Merriwa is a Wiradjuri word which is thought to mean 'grass seeds' or 'flour made from grass seeds'. The area was initially known as the Gummum Plains district, after the river, which was then known as Gummum Creek.


The 1940 Melbourne Cup winner, Old Rowley, retired to Merriwa.
