The 3-D Dream On Rain Chain Link

Houses commonly use downspouts to transport rainwater towards a drain.  If you are not particular with downspout, it is a vertical pipe also known as downpipe connected to the roof gutter. 

Rain chains also function the same way a downspout does.  It is practically an alternative to a downspout but also more decorative in purpose.  A rain chain is typically a chained series of metal cups with holes in the bottom to allow rainwater to drop usually towards a water storage.  This is common and widely used in Japan. 

Nowadays copper rain chains are commercially produced and sold.  It varies in designs and more ornate for decorative purposes.
