They offer melodic interpretations
of water heading to the ground.
Sometimes, there is a the potential for a
three dimensional moment.
However, here in the Asheville NC area, the hub of sustainable innovation, rain chains offer more than attractive decorative features.
Rain chains can be a simple addition to a chosen rainwater harvesting (RWH) system.
Here in the mountains,
where permaculture and organic gardening
are part and parcel of neighborhoods,
many of our clients are exctied about RWH.
Rain water harvesting (RWH)
requires less treatment than greywater recycling,
if being used for non-potable demand
such as watering your garden.

On a Sunday, during the February thaw, we came across this rain chain creating a point of interest. Here you can see how this simple rain chain, still having a good bit of ice aboard, breaks the fall of the water, guiding it downward to a storage basin. There is, too, the enchanting melody.
If you were inclined, you could even connect this to a rain barrel for storage.
