Step #3: Install your Link Chain Reducer.

Skip this section if you didn't purchase a Link Chain Reducer.

Dishes and Basins

We offer a variety of dishes and basins that can be connected to your rain chain with a handy Loop-Kit. The Loop-Kit comes with a section of lightweight chain that's easy to connect to your rain chain. We recommend adding stones to the bottom of the basin or dish to add weight.

Underground Drains

Another solution is to connect your rain chain to a drainage grate. The rainwater will run away from the house through the underground drain. This is a popular option for new construction homes, or for homes that are getting a professional landscape remodel.
