Covid-19 Response

RainBank would like to extend our gratitude to essential workers on the front line in this Covid-19 health crisis. Healthcare professionals, first responders, law enforcement, and military personnel once again are being asked to act during tough times. Truck drivers, shippers, food suppliers, pharmacies all working to keep the essentials available. Teachers and professors are remotely providing the flow of education for our students. Power and water supply workers keeping the lights on and water at our faucets and, finally our citizenry practicing precautionary measures to help slow down the spread of outbreak of Covid-19.

RainBank Rainwater Systems has taken precautionary steps to ensure the safety and health of our employees and customers while maintaining a level of service that is responsible for the health of all. We have educated our employees on proper cleaning and distancing protocols per CDC guidelines to help stop the spread of the virus and have stressed the importance of communication with regard to the onset of any possible symptoms.

RainBank has taken steps to limit travel and job site visits on a case-by-case basis for now, in order to ensure safety measures are in effect for the safety of our employees and our customers.

RainBank’s Engineering and Design team is continuing with system designs for projects underway, as well as new customer inquiries of new or future projects. We are available for support, to answer questions, and provide quality engineered systems for your water project and will be there when it is time to install.   

We are committed to serving our customers and partners during this trying time.

Water Storage Systems for Fire Suppression and More

Since early 2016, when RainBank launched its distributorship and  relationship with Contain Water Systems, we had high hopes for properly serving the steel water tank market for water storage systems used in fire suppression, detention / infiltration, irrigation, stormwater management, rainwater collection and yes, even potable drinking water.

In this time, both commercial and residential customers have come to expect quality products as well as knowledgeable staff provided by RainBank and CWS.

Contain’s highly trained expert staff and leadership have exceeded our expectations in workmanship and knowledge, with exceptional and courteous customer service.
