Rain chains effortlessly manage the difficult balancing act of keeping rain-induced flooding at bay, while still looking pretty. According to Groovy Green, rain chains are supposed to be "hung from the corners of your roof or canale to guide the flow of water into large barrels to catch the water from the roof for household purposes and gardening."

Used for hundreds of years in Japan, rain chains are a visually pleasing alternative to the traditionally more gaudy and less pretty downspouts. Expect to be put in a relaxed and dream-like state as you watch the rain water gently spiral and glide down the spout.
