Monarch Rain Chains has a selection of medium, large and X-large cup styles and link styles in 45 assorted styles to efficiently transport rain water.

We have added adding a dash of color to our existing collection of rain chains with the addition of aluminum powder coated rain chains in an assortment of colors. Be sure to check back regularly for new introductions and sale promotions.

Our rain chains are 8.5 ft. in length of which 8 feet comprises of the cup / link chain plus a 5” length of a pure copper triangular gutter hanger. Insert the triangular hanger into your existing rain gutter drain hole and watch the mesmerizing motion of rain water making its way from cup to cup and link to link. Detailed installation instructions are included with each rain gutter chain and are easy to follow. You can also check the installation instructions right there.

If you wish to contain most of the rain water we suggest the cup style. In case you prefer a visual stimulation- we suggest the link style, allowing you to partake of the delight as you watch the rain water run down the length of the chain. The sound of cascading rain water generates tranquility and is pleasing to the senses.

Rain chains are not only easy to install provided you follow our step by step instructions but easy to lengthen and shorten. If you require a substantial length, extending them to a longer length is now easier than ever. Every cup style rain chain comes with an additional spare link. However, if the adjustment of your chain’s length requires extra connector links you now have the option to purchase our round connector rings available on our accessories page. These round connector rings measure 1-1.5 inches in diameter and are available in the following options: pure copper, aluminum black and mill finish aluminum. 

There will always be splashing associated with rain chains downspouts however the volume and intensity of the splashing depends on the amount of rain fall that the gutter chain receives and the wind factor –so please bear that in mind prior to your purchase. Rain chain styles with decorative links such as the Hammered Cup Style will receive a bit more splash than a standard cup style with no decorative links. If you desire the least amount of splash volume or reside in an area that receives a copious amount of rainfall, it is best to select a rain chain with minimal decorative links in between the cups or larger cup size with fewer decorative links connecting them.

This rain chain was a perfect solution to an ugly downspout. It is lovely to listen to the rain flowing down, it is just the right length and it looks great!

Richard Herman -

I received my rain chains from Monarch Rain Chains today. They were all, and more, than I expected. Communication with the supplier was just what I wanted. This is the way to do business in this country! I could not be happier with the quality of the product, and I am picky! Customer service is as good as the product. I had a question about installation (I have to combine 2 1/2 chains to do my project), and it was answered quickly and correctly. Super product, super service!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much splash will my rain chain experience?

Since all rain chain has some splash factor associated with its functioning, the amount depends on three factors: 
  • Amount of rain fall 
  • Wind factor
  • Style of rain chain
  • Installation of Rain Chain
The more rainfall you receive, the greater the splash you may experience. As always be sure to select the appropriate cup size rain chain for the amount of rainfall your geographical area receives. Some rain chain styles with decorative links, such as the Hammered Cup style will receive a bit more splash, especially in areas of heavy rainfall. Please keep this in mind prior to your purchase. Be sure to check that installation of your rain chain has been done properly.

Incorrect installation will result in splashing if the rain water from the outlet is not channeled properly into the first cup. We recommend installation of a rain chain with our gutter adaptor™

Will my rain chain be negatively affected by the snowy climate?

No. Climates with snow do not affect the material. Ice buildup will develop on the rain chain leaving a beautiful ice display however it does not negatively affect the rain chain in any way. Extra weight will be added to the rain chain due to the ice buildup so we recommend strengthening your gutter to support the added weight. You may consider adding a gutter reducer as an extra safeguard.

 
Can a rain chain be installed if I do not have gutters in place?

Yes. Customers have gotten creative and have used many practical items to hang their rain chains from their homes. Small to medium sized round containers have been utilized in areas where the roof converge, creating a valley. Here the container is placed at the end tip of the “valley” which allows the water to be contained and then flows out from a drilled hole in the center and into the rain chain where it hangs from the container itself.  

What is a gutter reducer and do I need one for my rain chain?

A gutter reducer is made to accommodate a rain chain for gutter holes larger than the standard 5-6 inch that come with 2x3 inch downspouts. Rain chains come with a triangular or crossbar hanger to fit inside a standard gutter outlet. If your downspout size is larger than the standard 2x3 inch then we recommend installing a gutter reducer to facilitate a controlled flow of water from your gutter into your rain chain.

Will the cup style rain chains contain all of the water?

All cup style rain chains will have some splashing associated with them due to the nature and design of the chain. Because of its open design, it is not closed like a standard plastic downspout whose sealed pipe like container captures the water in tightly controlled manner. A rain chains open design allows you to delight in watching the water make its way down the length of the chain.

Can I return or exchange my rain chain for another one?

You may return or exchange any unused rain chain within 30 days of the original delivery. There will be a 10% restocking fee applied for all returned rain chains. We do not apply a restocking fee for items which are exchanged for another. Refunds will be for the amount of merchandise only. There is no refund for shipping charges.
 
What if I need a longer length for my rain chain?

Of our 45 styles of rain chains, 8 styles are available with extensions pieces that extend 3 feet in length. Visit our page and click the “Extensions” tab to view our extension pieces. We carry both link and cup style extensions. You may also choose to purchase a second rain chain and adapt the length according to your needs. A set of pliers is all you need to cut the length you desire to add on to your 8.5 rain chain.
