What Are Rain Chains and How Do They Work?
Rain chains, or "Kusari-doi", as they are known in Japan, are artistic alternatives to standard downspouts. But how does a rain chain work? A rain chain hangs from your gutter, guiding rainwater down it's links and into a drain or a water barrel. Copper rain chains are especially popular with clients who choose to install copper gutters however they are available for other metal gutters too.
The Dual Role of Rain Gutter Chains
What are rain chains used for, and why use a rain chain in your gutter system? Apart from their ornamental designs and the sound of water chiming as it runs down the chain, rain chains play a significant functional role in dealing with rain water:
- Water Control: They guide rainwater from your gutters to the ground which helps prevent soil erosion, damage to siding and the foundations of your property.
- Maintenance: Unlike enclosed downspouts, rain chains are easier to maintain as blockages are clearly visible and easy to clear.
