Installing a rain chain only takes 5 minutes and is exceedingly straightforward, even if you are not a DIY enthusiast.
We have put together this 4 step guide and accompanying video to guide you through the process.
4 step installation guide (see the video below):
Step 1: Remove the gutter downspout
Gutter downspouts are usually only fitted into the horizontal gutter outlets. Thus they can be removed by pulling the tube downwards.
Step 2: Place the hook or reducer in the gutter outlet
All our rain chains come with a hook which is designed to fit in gutter outlets.
If you opted for a rain chain with a smaller diameter than your gutter outlet, we recommend using a reducer instead of the hook. Most often, gutter outlets are 80mm in diameter but 100mm is also fairly common.
Etape 3: Fix the rain chain on the hook
Then attach the first cup or link of the rain chain to the hook.
Etape 4: Fasten the base of the rain chain
Finally, we recommend securing the base of the rain chain, so as to optimise the flow of water. This will also reduce its exposure to strong winds.
Congratulations, you have now installed a rain chain!
