Rain chains attach to the gutter and collect and redirect the rain water to a collection basin or bucket. Unlike gutters, the chains are aesthetic as well as melodic.
There are a variety of styles and finishes to suit any outdoor decor and rain chains do not require any special installation or rerouting of gutters. Instead, with a specially designed kit, the water is funneled through the downspout hole mounted on the gutter to guide the rain water efficiently to the chain.
Rain chains direct the water into a chosen storage basin or barrel, which can be as decorative or functional as desired. The stored water then can be saved for dry spells without adding to a water bill. Rain chains are a beautiful alternative to traditional, closed gutter downspouts that guide the water from the roof to a collection point. They are a great way to utilize rain water naturally for use in the yard.
