Above ideas are good. Another useful thing to do is to reverse the sides of your chain each season. As part of your spring work, reverse the end of your chain connected to your anchor so that it is not always the same links sitting on the bottom.
I'm a cruiser in deep waters and so carry several hundred feet of chain. Rarely use the last 50 feet or so, and despite fresh water rinsing back at the dock, find it gets unhappy being at the bottom of the chain locker and likes to see sunlight like the rest of us.
I like the idea of putting draining tiles down there. Just makes sense.
Good luck, and your chain sounds fine for now.
