We built a new cottage style home and didn't want to spoil the front entrance by installing gutter downspouts. This rainchain has been PERFECT for our need and works very well. I researched for weeks and discovered that the pattern of this particular chain will handle the most water from the roof. The cups are large enough and they are far enough apart to handle heavy rains from a steep roof. Be aware that you will have a bit of splatter but it is overall the best choice if you don't like the look of downspouts. The rain makes a pleasant sound and I have received so many compliments on these chains. I attached the chain to a piece of rebar set into a pottery flower pot. I drilled three holes out the side of the pot to disperse the rain water and am very pleased with that arrangement. I am very glad that I made this purchase.

We recently made major changes on our house. We painted the entire exterior and installed stones on the front porch.Realizing the new look could fit with installing a copper rain chain, we removed the gutter, ordered the chain and installed it.The second day, the rain came in and we were able to appreciate the new look.Thank you.
purchased smaller cupped rain chains from another company...noted a lot of splashing and knew I needed larger cups...These cups work great, they look good and were easy to install. I just wish Overstock would have more of a selection of rain cups or at least extensions for longer than 8.5 foot roofs...Fast shipping, and price is right for these larger cups.
I absolutely love the rain chains. Besides looking beautiful when it is not raining they are very functional when it is. We have had some very cold weather and the snow melting off the roof freezes at night and makes beautiful sculptures along the chain. A great enhancement to the house.
I waited a couple of months to write this review because I wanted to see how they weathered. These rain chains are beautiful, MUCH nicer quality than what I found in stores. They are a heavier duty quality, and do a great job diverting the rain off a gutter that was constantly clogging on our pool house. Since they drain onto concrete we put clay pots filled with rock at the bottom, and it looks so pretty when it's raining and dry. The copper has not rusted. Very pleased with this purchase.
These copper rain chains are really lovely and held up well even with lots of ice on them this winter. When the rain is heavy, there's a lot of splashover, but that's typical for almost any rain chain. These are an architectural asset to the house! My next goal is to pair them with really attractive rain barrels, which I haven't found yet.
