Rain chains are a beautiful alternative to closed gutter downspouts. They attach at the top of the gutter and hang down the side of the house and into a rain barrel or water collection receptacle.  Rain chains often have small cups to slow the fall of water down into a rain barrel. They’re both practical and a beautiful water treatment. The Japanese have used rain chains for hundreds of years.

In this article, Robert demonstrates how he removed a downspout and installed a rain chain over his rain barrel.

You can see examples of rain chains on this page at Amazon.
