With Complex Permitting, Choose the Right System Designer / Installer

At the beginning stages of planning a rainwater system, be sure to choose a system designer / installer who will work with you to design and build the most effective and efficient system for your needs. You especially want a company that knows how to navigate the complex permitting process.

Here is some information we originally published last year, which, if you are new to our blog, can be helpful as you plan your own system.

Whether commercial or residential, potable or non-potable, RainBank works closely with architects, designers, builders, and individual homeowners who appreciate face to face consultations and flexible / scalable solutions. Rainwater collection is appropriate for small scale residential needs and large scale commercial applications. Rainwater collection can help mitigate stormwater runoff, while providing a viable water source for irrigation, wash down, toilet and laundry facilities. With proper design rainwater collection can supplement city water usage for both residential and commercial demands. If properly filtered and disinfected rainwater can provide whole house potable usage in many Washington State counties. Rainwater collection and use can be integrated into a drainage plan to meet the new 2016 storm water codes.
