Standing within a fast-paced world, keeping up to date with latest current events, world events and technology may become overwhelming. While the world may be inundated with constant reminders and sound bites from water conservation to reducing and conserving consumption of natural resources, it always a good feeling to know some things can remain simple and constant. A solid copper traditional link downspout is an all natural copper choice to standard downspouts that provides an easy and resourceful way of transporting rain fall from your gutter outlet. They are economically priced, conscientious of the environment and constructed to last a lifetime since copper weathers well with time.

What makes a Link copper downspout a superior choice to plastic downspouts?

  • It is the basic simplicity found in their structural design.

downspout allows the rain water to flow down the length while creating a soothing zen like environment.

The link style rain chain lends itself in a consistent manner with the home, blending and becoming an extension of it. The link downspout is suspended a safe distance from the structure so rain water does not damage the foundation, allowing the chain downspout to become displayed in an exhibit like form.

The link copper rain chain is a traditional and heavy duty designed chain. It reveals a more masculine structural design and consists of a simplified arrangement of a series of links. Because of its consistent link sequence running through the entire 8.5 foot length of the chain, the water streaming down the chain moves in a steady and consistent flow. The design allows the rain fall to run directly parallel to the chain reducing the splashing effect and producing a waterfall like feature. The links are made of a 3 gauge wire thickness consisting of pure copper material. The rain chain consists of a total of 57 copper links.

Apart from its structural design, the Link rain chain has another superior feature in the way it serves the environment. Copper is a highly recyclable material and conducive in sustaining the environment. Because it is a natural material, the carbon footprint or greenhouse gases released into the environment are kept to a minimum. The consumption of eco-friendly products in the home is a smart way of reducing this environmental hazard. In addition, it encourages the salvaging of rain water. The open and structural design is made to complement and be a counterpart of catch basins. This corresponding item is used to collect the rain water released from the end of the rain chain and recycled for other uses. This is an easy way to practice an active green lifestyle and help preserve our environment.

The link copper rain chain comes equipped with a cross bar hanger attached as a way of facilitating the installation of the rain chain into your existing gutter system. As a recommendation, it is encouraged to install your link rain chain using ourcopper gutter adaptor kit ©.This helps direct the flow of water down into the rain chain in a simplified consistent manner. This design concept allows you to easily install without breaking apart your current gutter. It helps maintain an easy transition from removing your plastic downspout and incorporating your new rain chain.

Beautiful collections of Rain Chains

I had been eyeing a rain chain for some time now and contemplating whether I should purchase one or not. I first became aware of rain chains when a neighbor down my street installed one just a few weeks ago. I take my morning walks along the street where I live and noticed it hanging one morning. I haven’t had the chance to ask the gentleman who lives there his experience or where he bought it but it has been definitely on my mind. It looks like a piece of metal artwork with a sequence of cups linked together. I thought it was the most original idea and began to wonder if it had some purpose other than it being a decorative item. I though it would make a great bird feeder or a way to place small plants inside. When I went online to figure out what it supposed to do, I was even more impressed. Never did it cross my mind that it channels the rain water from the gutters. I thought that was such a neat idea that the more I saw it, the more it intrigued me.

I saw some really beautiful collections on www.monarchrainchains.com. My neighbor has a barrel looking one that goes great with the architectural design of his home. My home is quite traditional, with Mediterranean elements so I decided to go with a floral design. I chose the Flowerama rain chain for its bronzy copper color and also because the design is so alive and fresh looking. It would look great against the white stucco foundation of my home. I was thrilled when I received it. The shipping was pretty fast; I got it in less than five days of original purchase. I had my son install it and he said installation was pretty easy, considering I had standard downspouts in its original place. The rain chain came with instructions on installation so that was really helpful to my son. In less than 15 minutes, my flowerama rain chain was up!

I couldn’t be more pleased with my rain chain purchase. The website makes it easy to find the rain chain you are looking for and the shipping was really fast. I like looking outside my window just to marvel at it. It truly is a great piece of artwork that functions the same as a gutter downspout- it can’t get more awesome than that. Perhaps it will create a chain effect in our neighborhood and others will become inspired to forgo their gutter downspouts in place of a beautiful rain chain.

Rain Chains : A simple solution to rain water runoff

Having lived in the Midwest all my life, rain is what usually grabs headlines. Because we get a good amount of rain each year, finding solutions to curb rain runoff and excessive water can be a challenge. A simple solution was addressed to me by a good friend who owns a rain chain. I looked online for rain chains and the results were amazing. There are many practical and easy ways to manage runoff by simply getting a little creative. There is an area in my home where the water from the gutters flow almost directly into an area that I like to plant my favorite plants and flowers. When it rains, it gets over saturated with the amount of water flowing directly into it. As I researched rain chains,  I found an easy solution to this problem. I saw how some had created rock beds into the ground
in which the rain water could be deposited into it. I decided to create a small path way filled with rocks that led away from going into my favorite plants and thus avoid so much water saturating it. I got my husband to get started on it right away. It was very easy and didn’t take much tools or expenses. We bought some rocks along with some that we find along the way from nature hikes and near our home. I purchased my rain chain at www.monarchrainchains.com and was pleased to check out the selection of rain chains available. There are so many beautiful styles to choose from. I really liked the ring rain chain and how the rain looks as it runs down the ringlets down almost in a cascading manner. The quality of copper is really good, the gauge is thick so I know it will last me a very long time. Also, the shipping was really fast and got it in less than a week, I was really happy about that. I will be recommending your website to my family and friends.

I really hope this catches on more quickly. It is a work of art and does so much for the home.
