In addition to being a fantastic looking alternative to conventional downspouts, a rain chain also has the added benefit of being an environmentally smart choice. Copper is the worlds most reusable resource and because of it’s reusable nature, copper’s recycling rate is higher than that of any other engineering material. In fact, in the United States, each year nearly as much copper is recovered from recycled material as is derived from newly mined ore.
Furthermore, they can encourage rainwater collection. They can be incorporated into rainwater harvesting systems with rain barrels, or other catchment containers. Another popular way to reuse rainwater is to direct it to a rain garden which can help mitigate the effects of urban runoff. It can help turn such an environmentally helpful setup into an attractive water feature. So if using chains in lieu of conventional downspouts were not incentive enough, now you can feel good about having made a choice that can also support environmentally sustainable building practices.
