Alternative to Traditional Gutter Downspouts: Rain Chains
Rain chains are quickly becoming a popular alternative to traditional gutter downspouts. While their purpose is largely decorative, rain chains are an effective option in moving water from you gutters, gently to the ground, reducing the threat of water damage to your home and walkways.
For hundreds of years, the Japanese have used rain chains to move rainwater off their homes and temples, often collecting the water for use in a variety of ways. Furthermore, rain chains also have been used in South America, where chains are more easily obtained than traditional downspouts.
In addition to their beauty, rain chains have an enjoyable, waterfall sound as the water moves down them.
