Mingenew Water Tanks

For over thirty years, Pioneer Water Tanks have been a leading water tank supplier for Mingenew and surrounding areas.

The Mid-West Region of Western Australia is viewed by many who live in Perth or interstate as either a family holiday area or a transport hub with ports and train links, but those who live in the area know it is a large rural community with important grazing and crop industries, in addition to being a hub for mining and fishing.

Farmers and families who live in and around Mingenew know that when they install a Pioneer Water Tank they have the backing and support of Australia's number 1 big tank manufacturer, who you will find every year at the town's
ever popular Mingenew Midwest Expo.


Mingenew is a town in Western Australia, located 383 kilometres north of the state capital, Perth that is renowned for its epic spring wildflower season and gigantic grain storage facilities.

Water Tank Colours

All water tanks manufactured by Pioneer Water Tanks are produced right here in Australia, from Australian BlueScope steel. Pioneer Water Tanks are available in the full range of Colorbond® colours seen below, or in a standard Zincalume® finish.

The Mingenew Climate

Mingenew features a semi-arid Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and cooler, wetter winters.


Mingenew is dry and sunny most of the year round, with most or all of the rainfall coming in the winter months, with an annual average rainfall of around 400mm.


Known as The Grain Centre, the town's economy is based on the farming of sheep, wheat and lupins, and there is a giant wheat stalk sculpture, in the main street of the town, emphasising the importance of wheat farming in the area.

Mingenew Water Storage Challenges

While many people across our dry country relish the sight of rainfall, evolving weather conditions, and modern infrastructure have led to increasing cases of stormwater runoff and flash flooding.

The installation of a rainwater tank can be a great tool in helping to prevent damaging water runoff, and aid stormwater systems.

If we suppose the typical roof in Mingenew is 200m2, then in the case of a weather event that dropped 150mm of rainfall, such as freak rains in early 2022, it would only require 100 homes to have installed rainwater tanks to keep over 3 million litres of water from turning into stormwater runoff.

Bushfire Protection in the Australian Summer

Bushfire Preparation

With much of the Mid-West region being dry and sparse, and prone to long periods with little to no rainfall, it is prone to bushfires in the scorching, dry summer months, with shrubs dry and susceptible to wildfires

In addition to having a bushfire action plan, an important way to prepare for the arid summer months is to make sure that you have adequate water storage to help protect you from the risk of fire, and a Pioneer Water Tank can aid in providing that protection.

Pioneer Water Tanks offers the option of a fire reserve in your tank, to ensure it can be used for both household water storage and fire protection.

The best performed water tank in bushfire conditions

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

Notably, unlike the other tanks - which either melted or split - the Pioneer Water Tank continued to hold water even after a fire front, which could well prove crucial to firefighting efforts.

If your water tank has been exposed to fire, it is important to ensure that you get your water tested as soon as possible to make sure that it is safe for food preparation or drinking. The water would, however, still be suitable for purposes such as watering gardens or lawns.

The Pioneer Water Tanks Difference

Aqualiner Fresh ® antimicrobial water tank liner

A Pioneer Water Tanks exclusive, the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner is the only antimicrobial water tank liner on the market, proven to inhibit the growth of algae and bacteria inside your water tank.

The natural antimicrobial properties of silver and Sanitized ® technology are woven into the Aqualiner Fresh ® water tank liner.

This is an industry-leading product, made up of five engineered layers, coming together to produce the most technologically advanced, cleanest and strongest water tank liner available today.

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 purpose of water storage.

This V-Lock panel profile is designed not only for the toughness and durability of the tank wall itself - by engineering the sheets to the optimal thickness for each panel - but also to protect the tank liner, preventing stretching and wear as the tank fills and empties.

The design was deemed so good, in terms of structural integrity and aesthetic appeal, that it won an Australian Design Award.

Australian made water tanks - Mingenew local service

Made up of more than 50 local water tank dealers across the country, Pioneer's Dealer Direct Network means that we can provide truly local service to all Australians.

It is crucial that Pioneer's water tank dealers and installers are experts in water tank construction, as a water tank is only as good as the person who builds it.

Huckleberry Water Tanks are the local Pioneer Dealer Network member for the Mid-West, and can help with all of your water storage needs in Mingenew, from the installation of your water tank and throughout its service life.

Mingenew Historical Fact

Mingenew was named after Mingenew Spring, an Aboriginal word recorded by European settlers in 1856,[2] possibly deriving from either the words Minga nu "the place of many ants and flies" or Mininoo "the place of many waters".


Mingenew and the surrounding Irwin District were first explored by the brothers Augustus Charles and Francis Thomas Gregory in August 1847, looking for suitable grazing land. Settlement of the district then occurred in the 1850s because it was ideal country for cattle.
