Now that it is properly installed, I'm thinking about ordering these beautiful rainchains for the rest of our downspouts. Installation was not as simple as described as the wires are relatively weak and pliable. When the rain came down, so did the chain. We solved the problem by drilling holes in both sides of the downspout opening and wove the wires through. Now that it is up -- it's gorgeous! Keep in mind that this is for a single story application.
The order came very quickly! I have purchased one other rain chain (not from Overstock) and it is the same good quality copper that I payed much more for previously. I will continue to look for my purchasing needs from Overstock first.
I've gotten so many compliments on this addition to our backyard! I'm glad I purchased a rain chain of my own because it adds such character and charm to the garden. I love the sun but the chain makes a rainy day seem more tolerable. :) It's really cool when the rain flows through it. I wish it hung closer to a window so that I could enjoy the sounds of the water flowing through the cups. I had been seeing these chains all over the internet on the house design websites and wanted one for my very own. It was originally intended for the front of my house to hang next to my recently remodeled front porch but because the chain is made of copper, and copper is something that people will take from you, we moved it instead to the back of the house. We can enjoy it but unfortunately passers by cannot. I bought it last summer and brought it indoors over the winter. It hangs from a regular gutter downspout so my husband cut a whole in the asphalt below and installed a grate with pipe leading to my rock garden. We cut a large whole in the bottom of a plastic plant pot that looks like it's made of wicker and put the pot over the grate. We secured the chain over the pot using a piece of copper wire then we filled the pot with rocks. Originally the chain was a very shiny copper and now it's begun to oxidize. It's now brown but no less attractive and still draws compliments! Shipping took only 5 days. I would definitely recommend owning a rain chain. I wish that OS would allow photos to be uploaded with our reviews. I feel this would enhance the review even more!
I bought this chain a few years ago from O. Living in Michigan, I take it down in winter months. Each spring I am reminded how much I love it. I hang it from the corner of my garage in front of the house where it nestles into a bed of pea gravel. The rain funnels down just as it should. I took a few sections out (very easily) to get the length right. It's no longer shiny copper but a weathered patina. I look forward to staring at it when it rains! It's hypnotic for me :-) I have probably sold a few for O as I get so many compliments.
