anyone seen these in use
Nope but would look nice on an oriental type outbuilding/structure in a garden I suppose. I'm sure are tree hugger friends would love it too
I'm thinking of diverting to a water butt myself- possibly. I can see a rain chain becoming a pain in the posterior to set up and maintain.
They are not really practicle for an alternative to a house down pipe methinks.
Maybe where it doesn't rain much. Can imagine torrents of rain and bird **** spilling all over the place off decorative copper bowls and hoping the pvc pipe goes back up ok
Seen quite a few chains used instead of down pipes but only the chain, none of the fancy decorative bits. Copes with quite a lot of water but needs to be quite a long way off the house wall.
Interesting... I think maybe it does not suit UK conditions and roof types. Our downspouts are very close to the wall, and I can imagine damp forming easily in most instances.
