2016 Was a Good Year for Rainwater Systems

Seattle’s RainBank Rainwater Systems would like to thank our customers and partners for their support this past year.

It has been our pleasure to be part of so many quality projects, residential and commercial, throughout the Pacific NorthWest.

Closing this exciting year we have developed new approaches in design and expansion of our services. Always keeping with our progressive approach, we have gained new alliances within the industry so we may better serve our customers. We are proud to have introduced competition in the steel water tank market, not only in Seattle but in eight Western States with our distributorship of Contain Water Systems Inc. 

RainBank Rainwater Systems has become a Living Building Challenge certified designer/ builder of rainwater collection systems with the construction of Heron Hall, the home of Jason McLennan, CEO of the Living Building Challenge, and one of the world’s greenest homes.

Our very own Chad Lindsly has volunteered to be a co -ARCSA NW regional representative; which means he will serve on a few ARCSA committees in 2017. 

We look forward to another great year in serving our customers and communities.

Are Decentralized Water Systems the Answer?

water-1587718_640As we shared in an earlier post, RainBank Rainwater Systems and Contain Water Systems Inc.  are attending the 16th annual American Rainwater Catchment Systems (ARCSA) conference in Las Vegas December 4th through the 8th.

While we’re working hard to learn new ways to bring the most modern rainwater harvesting products and practices to  you, here’s an oldie, but goodie from January 2015, that talks about decentralized water systems.

Rainwater collection, a simple source for decentralized water, can be the answer to our aging, centralized water systems. With expected increased demand from high density development and the high cost of upgrading infrastructure to meet those demands, water will become the new commodity. Much has been discussed about privatization of water districts in order to fund these expenses, turning these districts into “for profit” businesses.  Large corporations such as Nestlé are actively pursuing this new business model.

What effect will privatization and profit generating water companies have on water supplies? Will Wall Street play a part in the trading, much like oil or any other commodity? What then will happen to the average consumer? What level will supply and demand hold on the price and pricing of water?

Rainwater collection and use can play an important role in not only supply, but potentially help keep costs down for the consumer and water districts. Simple water conservation, along with  collection can decrease supply and demand by supplementing centralized water. A rainwater collection system used only for toilet flushing and laundry facilities can save the average home 50% of its use. Commercial buildings can supply their irrigation and toilet flushing needs with rainwater collection while saving thousands of cubic yards of centralized water consumption.

The supply and demand of centralized water can be mitigated with rainwater collection on a large scale by small supplementary rainwater collection systems for commercial and residential use.

If you can’t attend the ARCSA conference, be sure to stop back here for an update from us.
