Hi,

A rain chain is simply a chain that hangs from a gutter and forms a conduit for rain to reach the ground, although there are fancier versions. It's a chain, you can buy them anywhere and they are heavy so better to buy at home. I've not seen them for sale in Thailand, doesn't mean they're not, but possibly specialist places.

Cheers

There is a rain chain website in OZ that has free postage. I agree with Paul on the weight and space considerations.

You can drive down to Ocean Grove to Kyo and buy them. They are heavy so I wouldn't buy them overseas.

www.kyo.net.au/kyo_sc_p_List.asp?clsID=26 much cheaper than in Daylesford.

Ahhh, I've seen them at the Patong Merlin hotel. They run down into a big pot to catch the heavy rain. Jewlery lol......

Hi

I would not buy them overseas. But in Aus. We get them in the UK, and they have to be pretty heavy to allow the chain to do its job!
