All, this is not exactly a rain barrel but a filter. Through the chains water is sent to this filter which has layers of sand, gravel , a mesh and charcoal. Two pipes are hidden within, which take the filtered water to an underground tank . Rainwater is stored in this underground tank and used for all purposes including drinking and cooking.

What is the size and type of chain used? - Most rain chains are copper and a single chain. This is a better color for me and the multiple chains are a great look. What specifically are they? Thanks for your help.

How is the water handled? Is there a hidden reservoir?

I'm interested in seeing how the pipe was connected. Is the tank stored in the crawl space area? Love the idea!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Fall for a Water-Wise Fountain
Recycle. This smart application of a rain chain and rain barrel is actually lovely enough to be considered a fountain. When not capturing rainwater, the chains effectively evoke the sense of movement and calm of a water feature.Do you have a water-wise fountain you want to share? Or a question about how to conserve the water used by an existing fountain? Let us know in the Comments! We'd love to see your ideas.More:The Sustainable Garden: Permeable Paving Lets the Rain Soak InDesign With Weather: Introduce a Rain ChainDry Riverbeds Solve Water Runoff
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Just Add Water: Rain Barrel Magic
Show it off. This elegant rain chain/stone barrel combination doubles as a sculptural element in the garden. In fact, you have to look closely to recognize its pragmatic function. The use of strands of closely spaced, thin galvanized iron chains is an interesting variation on the more common and larger chains while the colors of the stone and metal blend seamlessly with the home's exterior paint and trim.
