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.
The best part of rainy days is looking out at the rain chain from the kitchen window. The water is mesmerizing.
Now I'm learning that it is gorgeous in the cold months, too. Ice freezes in beautiful shapes on the chain.
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.
It pays to read the descriptions of the items your considering buying. I made my choice to buy this particular rain chain because of the larger cups and ability to hold up to heavy rains. I'm looking forward to the rainy season to give it a real test drive. I tried it out with a hose just to see the water run thru and start the copper finish on it's way to a great patina. Looks so much better in front of our porch then a regular down spout. So let it rain, I'm ready.
I really love this rain chain. I wanted something that didn't look for feel flimsy and would last a long time. This one fits my needs perfectly. I puchased an 18 inch. copper basin to go with it, which goes excellent with the chain. This is such an eye catching front porch addition, one that I'm happy I made.

I lost a portion of this during the winter. Are extensions available?treester on Apr 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm sorry I could not find extensions for this. Maybe you would be able to find some copper chain at your local hardware store.
Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 28, 2013
I needed very tall portions of the rain chain, so I ordered three sections and split one of them to extend the other two. It is easy to do. I believe that I also saw this same rainchain at Target.lacicat on May 1, 2013
Can you provide a picture showing the attachment to the valley edge? What secures it to the valley edge and what captures the water at the valley edge?mobileblu on Feb 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Unfortunately, we do not have any additional images. The item includes copper clips for easy installation and water flows from cup to cup during a rainfall.

I don't know how you would attach it to the valley. It is made to attach to the hole in the gutter that the downspot would go. I ordered a separate copper piece that attaches, using that instead of the wire v shaped hanger that is included.lacicat on May 1, 2013
