I was recently asked to check out rain chains by the owner of Rain Chains direct. Up until then, although I had seen one on a house nearby, I knew nothing about them. But one look and I was definitely interested. It installed extremely easily. It was up in minutes. I was hanging it up in a fine spring rain, so although I was getting wet, I was able to see it working immediately. It is certainly more decorative and fun than an ordinary downspout. For the right location, it is just the thing.
There are several online sources for rain chains however the rain chains from Rain Chains direct are made with 100% copper and come in a variety of styles and shapes. They offer free FedEx shipping as well as information about rain chains, frequently asked questions and testimonials from customers. I found their rain chain to be well made, their directions easy to use, and the shipping and packaging to be very good. If you are interested, I encourage you to give them a look.
