I first saw these on a TV show and thought it would be a nice alternative to the gutter spouts that were falling down. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that it tends to overflow during the heavy rainstorms we have in Florida. During a normal rain shower, it is does the job and is much prettier than the gutter downspout. It tends to get a little clogged with leaves but so did the downspout. The circle rain chains might work better but we are quite pleased with Buttercup rain chain.
This chain is really beautiful, and seems to be very well made. I just recent'y got it and it hasn't rained yet, so I can't rate it on durability. I also have no idea on how it will sound until it rains. In the meantime, it looks fantastic and was a good price.
We put these on the front of our log home. I didn't want a vinyl downspout right beside the full flight of log stairs leading to the front door so we tried rainchains. We put a half barrel under them with a bungee cord holding the chain to the bottom of the barrel (drill lots of extra holes for water drainage!). Then we put a layer of large stones in the barrel to hold it in place. Our chains were two stories long! The chains are beautiful and acquired a very nice patina over time. Function... not as good a "real" downspout. There is some overflow and splashing, especially during a heavy downpour. But for the look, it was worth it. FYI, if you live where it's cold enough to freeze you have to take these down in the winter. Ice will build up in them preventing them from working, but also making it VERY heavy. My neighbor liked mine so well she got some... and didn't take them down for the winter. The ice built up and it let go, ruining her chain and damaging her gutter. She got more, though, and those she took down!
Great rain chain, looks nice and easy to install even for me!
