Common questions about rain chains

Welcome to our FAQs on rain chains. Find out the answers to your most frequently asked questions to help you choose the right rain chain for your building.

The right length for your rain chain depends on the distance between your gutter and where you want to direct the rainwater. We advise you to measure the distance between the bottom of your gutter and the ground (or your rainwater collection tray) and to subtract 7 centimetres corresponding to the height of the hook supplied or of a reducer.

The choice of rain chain depends on a number of factors, such as the style of your home and your aesthetic preferences, but also the climate in your region and the surface area of your roof. A large roof surface area generates a greater flow of water, which means you’ll need to opt for rain chains with wider cups to ensure good drainage. For specific recommendations, don’t hesitate to consult our team of specialists.

The choice of material depends on your aesthetic preferences and the style of your building. Copper is often appreciated for its noble appearance and the patina it acquires over time, while aluminium loses some of its shine. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is a material that does not change over the years and retains its shine. Aluminium chains are also less expensive than copper and stainless steel chains.

The sound of a rain chain depends on a number of factors, including the size of the links or cups and the strength of the rain. In most cases, rain chains produce a soothing sound when it rains, but it’s generally unobtrusive.

A conventional downpipe is not silent and generates a much less pleasant siphoning noise.

Link and cup rain chains are two different styles of rain chain. Link rain chains are made up of rings, which create a linear, uniform appearance. They are often used for their simple, unobtrusive appearance. Link rain chains offer a smooth, continuous flow of water.

Cup rain chains, on the other hand, are made up of small cups attached to each other. The rainwater cascades down, creating a unique visual and sound effect. Rain chains with cups are often chosen for their ornamental appearance and their ability to add a decorative touch to the home. They are also more effective on large roofs when they are made up of large cups.
