General question about this photo
Zach MillerJanuary 22, 2013
I noticed the chain from the rain gutter to the ground. Does it have an actual purpose or is it just for looks and if so what purpose does it have? Btw I love it, and love this app so much!

Hi Zach, the chain is a substitution for a standard downspout. It works OK, the water generally follows the chain down to the receiver below, however, if any debris is in the opening in the gutter, then the water pretty much misses the chain. There are other chains which work better, one of which is a series of small metal cups.
