Rain barrels attached to your gutter system, fill up with rainwater, which you can then water your garden with or use with your water feature, saving you money!
The chain drop (rain chain) can be a decorative alternative in situations where a regular downpipe is not suitable, or where the designer desires a unique feature or look for the home. Surface tension causes the water to follow the chain to a ground drain, water feature or a bed of gravel.
