Not quite perfect
Comments about Product:
mounted mine on wooden fence, because of that not PERFECTLY LEVEL. If inside mounting ring is changed to being a little taller the inside tube could be inserted, then easier to reinstall funnel to top of inner tube. Also VERY important after I purchased mine from you found it for $20.00 less. Real disappointed

Even measures the snow.
Comments about Product:
I bought one of these 10 years ago and accidently dropped it and cracked it. I always liked it and in spite of the cost ordered another. It is just one of those things that I don't want to do without.

Wonderful rain gauge
Comments about Product:
This rain gauge is accurate and easy to read. With the aid of the gauge, I know whether to use my sprinkler system or delay based on the amount of rain. Be sure to store it during the winter, so rain/snowmelt doesn't freeze in the tube and destroy it. It is mounted on a post, so it's easy to slide it off the mount. I have it mounted on my deck.

so glad I found this!
Comments about Product:
Was so glad I found this product. I had purchased this exact rain gauge 10+ years ago from the weather channel and was so disappointed I couldn't find a replacement for it as it was finally getting hard to read. Found this one & it was an exact duplicate!! Great Product!

The only rain gauge I would ever use!
Comments about Product:
I have been using this model rain guage for at least ten years. I finally had to replace my original because it was becoming harder and harder to read the small column since the black paint on the numbers and had faded. I provide weather info to a local newspaper and want the very best and most accurate instruments - and for rain guages this is the best.

This is my second gauge.
Comments about Product:
We keep track of rainfall, this gauge is perfect. We had over 7in. during 1 storm this summer, the large capacity was useful. I have recommended this gauge to friends.

2 Wonderfuls
Comments about Product:
I have loved each and every one of my professional rain gauges, even this time when I recieved 2 when I had ordered only 1. I paid & kept both in case I'd later need the other. This shows how highly I think of them! Every day I check the gauge to see if there was any precipitation to update my precipitation table. This hobby has involved these gauges for the past 10 years.

I would purchase again.
Comments about Product:
I use this product in relation to my grass and plants. Depending on the gauge and the amount of rain that fell expecially over night or when I'am away I would know how much watering my grass and plants received.

The guage is sturdy and easy to use and read. The design will permit mounting on a stake, or simply setting it on a level surface.

great low-tech rain gauge
Comments about Product:
This is a terrific rain gauge! Old fashioned and low-tech, but very clever design. The inside cylinder, with its scale magnified by the wide funnel, gives you very accurate readings of the first inch of rain, to 0.01" accuracy. Beyond an inch, the rest overflows into the huge capacity outer cylinder. All you have to do is empty the inner cylinder, refill it from the outer cylinder, and repeat until you have measured all of it to 0.01" accuracy. I have one of these at our primary home and another at our second home. Even if we are away from one of them for a month or more, I can get an accurate reading of the rainfall.

11 inch All Weather Rain Guage
Comments about Product:
This is my third rain guage of this type, the plastic ears or fingers on the post mounted holder do not hold up well. The clear plastic will cloud in the sunlight -- I guess that the UV will attack the plastic over time (8 years or so).

A quality product from a quality company
Comments about Product:
The rain guage is exactly what I was looking for.....durable, easy to read and accommodating. It even withstands our baking Florida sunshine and the rain level can be read from a distance. An excellent product provided by an outstanding company. Thank you.

Expensive, but worth it!
Comments about Product:
This is our second Professional Rain Gauge. After more than ten years of use in hot and very sunny southern Arizona, the plastic of our first rain gauge had "frosted." However, I loved the ease of use and accuracy of this gauge, so replaced it with the same one. Ten years plus is a great value in my book.

GREAT VALUE
Comments about Product:
I wanted a rain gauge that was easy to use and durable. This model fits both of those criteria. I have it mounted on a garden post so it is readable from the house windows. The installation was easy and it's a breeze to empty as needed. What a nice addition to my outdoor collection!

Good value, accurate.
Comments about Product:
This is the next best thing to a NWS gauge. This is my second one. The first lasted ten plus years and was still functioning fine but had become difficult to read due to continuous exposure to the elements, particularly the sun. Be careful when you have to measure amounts greater than one inch that spill over into the larger outside collection cylinder. It is difficult to pour directly into the measuring tube without spilling. I find it useful to pour the overflow into a pitcher with a spout and then pour from the pitcher into the measuring tube.

Rain Gauge
Comments about Product:
I keep daily records of the weather; precipitation, temperatures both high and low as well other important facts. I have used a similar rain gauge since the early 80's which I purchased throough The Weather Channel. It was still good when I replaced it with the new one. It just turned cloudy and became hard to read after all those years. A good product! If you are interested I have a web sit: [@]Thanks!

My absolute favorite rain gauge!
Comments about Product:
I have been watching weather since 1970! I have the digital rain gauges and standard 8" NWS gauge but this "Professional Rain Gauge" does it all, more easily, more accurately, and more economically than all the rest! Easy to mount on porch, deck or in garden! Unlike expensive digital and wireless gauges, this baby records Rain AND Snow at a fraction of the cost and is as dead accurate as my official NWS issue 8" gauge. This is the one gauge to buy for all your precipitation needs!

Easy to read and very accurate. Over time the clear plastic does get opaque and we need to buy a new rain gauge.

A good unit.
Comments about Product:
Exactly what I wanted - it's my second unit. The first was for my cabin deck in the mountains, the second is for my balcony here in town. Obviously, works well wherever it's installed.

Seeing is believing
Comments about Product:
This gauge allows you to set it up where it can accurately collect precipitation and you can read it from a distance without getting wet yourself. Easy to read numbers from the distance means you can get a quick read without having to bend over for close examination.
