Rain Chains: A Genius Alternative to Gutters

Julie Carlson March 05, 2013

In Japan, rain chains have been used for centuries as a device for directing rainwater runoff; they produce a musical cascade of water that empties either into a rainwater receptacle or a drainage bed.

Above: In a project by LiD Architecture, rainwater is siphoned into a small pool inset in a stone-paved deck area (also note the lettuce garden).

Above: The Copper Oval Loop Rain Chair is $16.40 per linear foot at Rain Chains.

Above L: Zen Loops Copper Rain Chain; $19 per linear foot. Above R: Extra Link Copper Rain Chain; $19 per linear foot.

Above: Rain Chain Installation Kit; $14.95 at Rain Chains.
