Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rain gauge ever! This rain gauge is the best I've found. The numbers are easy to read, even from across the yard. I highly recommend this gauge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best available but bring back old style numbers Have owned one of these for ten plus years. Love it. Wanted several for relatives but manufacturer changed from big yellow block numbers to these fancy script numbers which are much less legible. All in all good rain gague. The red float fades but a coat of red paint once every five years fixes that. Not freezeproof, but that should be obvious. Bugs and small leaves occasionally get into tube but they are easily washed out. Still better than any other inexpensive rain gague that I know of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EZ Read rain gauge lives up to it's name! Mounted the gauge on side of a fence post, about 40 feet from house. These gauges are very easy to read from inside the house. Purchased 2 more to give as gifts to friends. They are easy to drain, leaves don't get into them. Will purchase more for next Christmas gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Read I bought this as a Christmas gift, but I already have one. It's hard to find rain gauges for some weird reason. I like the large numbers for easy reading, but the structure that holds the gauge is kind of "wimpy" . I wish it would be made of stronger material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EZ READ RAINGAUGE I mounted it on the deck rail. Very easy to see. Holder for mounting is included.

why is the spacing for 1 inch so much longer than the distance between say 1 and 2 inches? the circumference seems the same thru out the cylinder

Asked by: carolleena
The manufacturer advised the following: "That is because the funnel is scientifically calibrated for the spacing on the tube. The funnel will allow the rain fall to equal one inch and can't be measure by a ruler."

where do you place it in order t get good results

Asked by: Mary Mary
The rain gauge should be mounted in an open, unobstructed spot, avoid trees, house eaves, or anything that could interfere with direct rainfall. Make sure funnel is higher than any object you're mounting it on. Mount as straight as possible. Please ready the orange float in the middle so you get the most accurate reading.

Shouldnt an inch be an inch? Just curious as to why the markings are so far apart?

Asked by: Gotmuff
Each section of the tube is equivalent to one inch of rainfall. Measures up to 5" of rain. 26 1/2" tall and tube is 1 3/4" diameter.

How do you read the rain water level ? Is it at the top of the red disk, the middle of the disk, or at the bottom of the disk? The difference in rain water is a quarter of an inch depending if you read it at the top, or at the bottom of the red disk.

Asked by: Ole West Texan
You would read the level at the middle.

Once mounted, how do you empty the water. 

Asked by: Big Tex 1
The gauge tube slides out of a cradle, and can then be emptied by turning it upside down and pouring out the water.
