I am very please with the quality and design of this product. It is not only functional but also visually appealing, Since it is on the corner of the house by my garden it looks like a piece of garden art. It is heavy enough that even in a strong wind it does not bang around but just gently sways. I would definitely recommend this product.
I purchased this product because of a recent trip to the islands and the resort used these exquisite copper drain spouts. They looked so pretty and unfortunately it rained quite a bit so I saw first hand how they worked. The water cascades down creating a waterfall. Very tranquil and pretty. Great quality. However, the only problem I should mention is when it is raining heavily the water flows quite quickly and will get your house wet. Also the water drains right under it so it really should be placed away from a foundation so the water doesn't create a "wet basement" problem. An overhang would be ideal. I still love it though and run onto the front porch so I can enjoy it when it rains. It's so good looking too even when the sun is shining and reminds me of my trip. Best "souvenier" I could have bought! Didn't know they existed until I saw them on Overstock! My sister, who was with me on the trip, bought one too!
I have two of these at my home. I plant them with succulents and flowering plants as they hang from the roof. I have given two others as gifts to thankful friends.. beautiful rain chains.. great gift or great to hang on your own rooftop.

I did a lot of research before getting my first rain chain so I was pretty sure what to expect, but being the stubborn person that I am, i had to see for myself. We have 2 rain gutters for our back patio - one for the flat roof and one that carries water from the main roof which has a much greater volume of water. This gutter always has a lot of water draining long after the rain has stopped and makes an annoying tap-tap noise as the drops hit the bottom of the downspout. This downspout was located right against the screen around our pool and was the one we replaced with the rain chain (against my husband's better judgement, I might add). He was right, it is quite over matched during a heavy rainstorm. The water overflows all of the cups and splashes into the screen very quickly. I pretty much thought that's what would happen and it didn't take long before my husband got to say "I told you so." All in all, though, I am quite pleased with my rain chain. It still makes a lovely tinkling sound once the rain slows down, but during a rainstorm, especially during a heavy afternoon thundershower (which occur almost daily here in the summertime, it can't handle the volume of water. It's kinda neat to watch, but quite ineffective as far as channeling the water, but that's not such a bad thing as long as you keep your distance. I think I'm going to have to admit he's right and ask my husband to move it to the other gutter where the volume of water is a lot less. I've heard you can put a small rope in the downspout to stop the water dripping down making that annoying tap-tap sound so I guess I'll try that when we move the rain chain and put back the other downspout. So my final opinion is that the rain chain will be just fine if your gutters don't have too much water volume, and it is still a nice addition to your home even if you do.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exactly as pictured, though the copper has already dulled as expected. I don't know how long it takes to turn green, but after a month of being out in the weather, it is no longer shiney.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is very good. Nice & heavy - doesn't sway in a heavy rainstotm hardly at all.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very.
I bought these beautiful rain chains to (1)help with rain coming off the roof since there was only one downspout on that side of the house, (2) is very peaceful to look at when the rain is dripping down through it. This is my second set of copper rain chains and I get a lot of complements. And in Washington State we get a lot of rain.
This came yesterday and I am very pleased. The quality is excellent. We haven't yet installed it and it will take a bit of effort to get it around the little bar that is in the way at the gutter, but it is going to look and perform well. It is half the cost of those flimsy ones I saw at my hardware store!
