Rainwater Equipment Featuring DAB Pumps


When Rainwater Equipment (RWE) and DAB Pumps began working together in 2019, neither knew what to expect from the other, but almost 5 years later, it’s evident that the success of their partnership has exceeded expectations.

Jim and Mitzi Wood, owner/operators of Rainwater Equipment first met with Paul Shuford (Sales Promotion & DTraining) from DAB at the RWE offices/warehouse in Willow Park, TX to discuss bringing on a new line of pumps as part of its rainwater solution for system installers. It was then when Jim & Mitzi discovered the potential impact that DAB pumps could have on their business. “A few of our installation customers had asked us if we were carrying DAB,” Jim says, “so we wanted to check them out. We’re always open to looking at new products that can solve water problems and make life easier.”
