Rainbow Reservoirs is the original supplier of Zincalume® steel, bolted-panel tanks in Africa. Our liquid storage systems are used widely across the continent by satisfied customers in domestic, rural and commercial applications and are utilised extensively in the mining, industrial and agricultural sectors.
At Rainbow Reservoirs we do not believe in skill dilution or casting the widest net. Instead, we believe that superior quality, total attention to detail, exemplary service and supreme expertise can only be properly attained by dedicated commitment to a specific range of the highest quality tanks available: Zincalume® bolted-panel tanks.
In 2003, Wayne Thompson, Managing Director of Rainbow Reservoirs, had the vision and foresight to register Skywater Dimensions t/a Rainbow Reservoirs CC. He was concerned about the apparent lack of sustainable water utilisation in Southern Africa believing that this may have been due to a dearth of affordable, high-quality water storage systems available in the region at the time.
The opportunity arose for Wayne to form a strategic alliance with Brian van Rooyen of Heritage Tanks, Australia, a leading manufacturer and supplier of tanks of the highest quality on that continent. With his generous assistance, guidance and expert advice, Rainbow Reservoirs installed their first Zincalume®, bolted-panel tanks in South Africa that conformed in every way to the exacting standards synonymous with those of Heritage Tanks.
Wayne has a strong conviction about the conservation of water. “Water is crucial for life on earth! Access to water is the one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century. With exploding population growth and rapidly growing economies in Africa, it is crucial that we as a continent develop a strong ethic towards water conservation. It is ironic that we consider it important to conserve all manner of things such as wildlife, natural places and even buildings, yet conserving water is at the bottom of our conservation-priorities list… this in spite of the fact that we are on the brink of a global water crisis”.
