The rain chain has been used in many countries for hundreds of years. They provide a beautiful and open waterflow system of diverting rain to the ground or a basin. They also sound great, and provide a relaxing retreat while giving your home an upscale and customized appearance. Rain chains are a beautiful alternative to metal or any closed downspout, and can be installed in place of downspouts or in an area where a downspout is undesirable. All chains are made from brass, copper or aluminum and can be installed on any gutter system. They are available in a standard 8.5 ft. length or can be customized for larger projects. Copper basins are a great addition to complete the custom look.
