A: Yes, rain chains can be attached to most types of gutter systems.
A: While rain chains handle regular rain well, in heavy downpours they may not be able to channel the water as effectively as a traditional downspout. Consider your local climate and rainfall patterns when deciding on a rain chain.
A: A rain chain is a decorative alternative to a downspout. It guides the rainwater down its chain into a ground drain or rain barrel, and provides a visually pleasing water feature when it rains.
