Frequently Asked Questions

Can I purchase a Rainbow Swing Set if I have a small or unlevel yard?

Yes, whether your yard is small or the ground is unlevel, we have a Rainbow Swing Set just right for you. If your yard is small, simply measure the area where you’d like to place your Swing Set and give us a call. We can recommend a swing set that’s ideal for your space and within your budget. If you live in the metro area, we’ll even come to your house, assess your yard, and give you our expert opinion. If your yard is unlevel, we can recommend some of our exclusive line of accessories and swing set options that we’ve created specifically to suit your circumstances.

Why should we buy a Rainbow Swing Set instead of a different brand?

We think your kids deserve the highest-quality, longest-lasting, and proven safest play equipment on the market. We ensure that by building our swing sets using only the finest materials, including 100% Cedar with a 10-step water seal process, dual-bolt construction, commercial grade hardware, vinyl-dipped components, and the safest slides in the marketplace. The result? Play time with fewer injuries, bumps, scrapes, and bruises.

If durability is important to you, you should know we’re so confident that our swing sets will stand the test of time, use, and weather that we back them with the best Lifetime Warranty coverage in the industry.

What’s more, Rainbow is a “green” business, investing in your kids’ future and the future of the planet by planting five trees for every one we harvest. As a Rainbow supplier, Rainbow Midwest adheres to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), an independent non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management.

For all these reasons, it’s little wonder Rainbow has earned its reputation as America’s Most Trusted Brand Name.

How should we maintain our Rainbow Swing Set to ensure its longevity?

To keep your swing set looking good, we recommend resealing it every 18–24 months with Rainbow brand sealer. Factors such as weather, harsh climate conditions, or above average wear and tear may dictate that you reseal your swing set more often.

Even with normal use, Rainbow recommends you check and tighten all nuts and bolts on a regular basis. Because Rainbow Swing Sets feature through-bolt construction, you can tighten the bolts as often as needed without risking the structural integrity of your swing set.

To prevent discoloration of plastic, metal, or vinyl, we recommend you clean all accessories as well as tarps, slides, swings, and ladder rungs a few times a year. Rainbow Midwest offers a range of maintenance services including power washing, resealing, and even moving your swing set to a different area of your yard. Feel free to call us for a quote.

Because Rainbow Swing Sets are built to be long-lasting and durable, we stand behind our products with the best warranty in the business — a Lifetime Warranty on most of the components on our full-size sets. For more information, refer to our warranty page for details on warranty coverage for each swing set series.

What makes the trampolines you carry superior to other brands?

Unfortunately, discounted brands sold by other retailers are often poorly constructed and unsafe. Because they’re manufactured with inferior material and hardware, the chances that they’ll malfunction and break are high.

The name-brand trampolines we carry at Rainbow Midwest contain patented safety systems that minimize risk to the jumper while allowing for repeated, long-term use with springs, spring pads, heavy duty frames, proven construction, and fail-safe engineering for up to 2500 lbs. Unlike the cheaper models our competitors sell, replacement parts for our trampoline are affordable.

Finally, the many accessories and games we carry ensure your kids will want to continue to play on your trampoline for years to come.

Do you offer installation for our swing set or trampoline?

Absolutely. Delivery and proper installation are key to making sure your equipment is as safe as possible. At Rainbow Midwest, we never outsource the installation to outside contractors. Our experienced, professional installers are part of our team and complete hundreds of installations each year. That means you can rest assured your swing set, basketball hoop, or trampoline will be assembled the right way and placed exactly where you want it. Feel free to give us a call at 1-800-RAINBOW (1-800-724-6269) for more information about our delivery and installation services.
