Used in Japan for hundreds of years, rain chains are a beautiful and functional alternative to traditional, closed gutter downspouts.  Guiding rain water visibly down chains or cups from the roof to the ground, rain chains transform a plain gutter downspout into a pleasing water feature. From the soft tinkling of individual droplets to the soothing rush of white water, they are a treat to listen to.   The Japanese often put a ceramic or stoneware pot beneath the chain which fills with water, so that when it rains, the water drips from the chain into the pot, creating a beautiful display.  Another attractive option is to make a square out of redwood or cedar beneath the chains and fill it with small pebbles. If it is damp regularly, moss will grow between the pebbles. You can also place a single paver tile or a few medium size stones under the chain to break the fall of the water.  Our rain chains are all made of thick, pure copper (and/or brass) to the highest standard in the industry.  Every chain comes with a gutter attachment piece (a V-hook).  Installation is usually straightforward and simple.  In general, cup styles will carry more water than link chains without splashing.  Our chains are 8 1/2' long - if you need a shorter length, cups can be removed.  If you need a longer length, extension kits may be ordered.   Extra cups make great decorative votive candle holders!
Features
  • This unique and beautiful new rain chain is contructed like a basket made of pure copper! The "frame" is stainless steel wire. The basket is woven with flat copper strips, tightly enough that water passes through the cup (as it should) and not out the sides.
