"When you want to shift runoff from heavy rain away from your home, rain chains are gorgeous alternatives to the downspout gutters you'll often see. While they are similar to downspouts in that they prevent water from damaging your home's siding and foundation, they are also decorative and come in many styles.

“Rain chains serve multiple beneficial functions.
