Rain chains are the traditional Japanese way to deal with runoff from a home’s gutters. While a rain chain can not handle the intense volume of water that a downspout can, for most rain events a rain chain is the more efficient and ecologically-friendly choice. As water dances down the chain and pools in the rain chain basin (or, better yet, flows into a rain barrel), the water has more chance to be evaporated or absorbed before it pours into storm drains, which can lead to increased soil erosion and pollution in the local water table. And, of course, rain chains are simply more attractive! The bright, warm glimmer of fresh copper or the distinguished cool patina of antique copper will add a new layer of beauty to your home, and there are few sights as delightful as raindrops pouring out of your teacup or watering can leader and drizzling playfully down your chain of tea cups, rain pails, or wine bottles!
