    The PVC pipe works. I have a similar issue. I'm about to replace the chain with a much longer length. Before doing so, I'm going to extend the pipe back about a foot and cap it with a 45 degree elbow. The pipe will definitely need a couple of rigid pipe hangers to handle the weight. Then, the chain should be more evenly distributed.

    Just thinking out loud. What if you drilled numerous holes in the bottom of that PVC pipe. Place a shower sump pump underneath the PVC pipe and gather the water as it comes in. I know itís not 100% but you could pick up a lot of water. Then run the exit line into the forward shower pump for easy drainage. Not sure if that will help.

    Hello Robert,

    How did you attach the top of the pvc pipe to hold it in place? Did you glue it to the inside of the bow pulpit's chain hole?
