This rain guage is large and easy to read. Unlike most rain guages, this one has a red meter that goes up when it rains so it easy to read as it rains more. The numbers are very large. Great for people with not so great eye sight.

Good rain gauge with one drawback Sept. 10 2011
By David Crumbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Overall this is a nice rain gauge at a good price. It is relatively large and fits nicely on my deck railing. While it's made of plastic, it does not seem flimsy. The one thing I found was that the container is clear, and while the numbers are large, it still makes them hard to see, especially from a distance. So I ended up putting a white backing on the outside behind the numbers, and that makes them much easier to see.

Great! July 12 2011

Fast shipping and packed nicely! Love the large numbers when looking out my door to see the amount of rain we have had. Make sure you level the top when attaching into the board to ensure accurate readings.

A rain gauge you can see from a distance...just don't lose the red strip April 9 2013
By Catrinka - Published on Amazon.com

We've gone through a number of rain gauges over our lifetime...most of them the skinny upright tube types. As far as the durability of those tubes, it never seemed to matter how much we spent on it. Whether it was a plastic tube in a plastic holder or a glass tube in a metal holder...if we forgot to bring the tube in before a freeze, there would be just enough of a crack in the bottom that the tube would no longer hold water.

I originally bought this waterfall rain gauge at our local Lowes a few years ago. With the larger-sized container and huge numbers, we were able to attach the holder to an inconspicuous spot of our furthest deck railing and still be able to read the gauge from inside the house. And it worked great for many years until this winter when it finally developed a tiny crack. I ordered a new one from Amazon. It's the exact same design as it was years ago; so I was able to just put the new measuring container into our existing holder.

The only small issue that we've had with it is the floating red plastic guide. The rectangular piece continually floats on the water within and more easily allows you to read (from a distance) where the water level is. Only problem is that 2-3 times a year we get major pounding rain storms which exceed the 6" capacity. Sometimes I go running out to empty it as it fills; but most times I choose to stay dry in the house. In these instances, we've occasionally had to go looking for the small red strip because the torrential rain washes it out of the container once it reaches the top. Not a regular occurrence, thankfully; but it can happen...and has :)

easy read gauge Nov. 29 2011
By T. Gaston - Published on Amazon.com

This rain gauge was easy to install, I attached it to the deck railing, facing it toward my sun-room windows. It is easy to read the gauge without going outside. The red plastic marker is very visible. Just be sure to catch the marker and put it back in the gauge when emptying out the rain water.

Doesn't anyone else see the huge design defeat here? April 5 2014
By Billy - Published on Amazon.com
Let me first say, this is a very attractive rain gauge.

But it will always overstate, usually significantly overstate, the rain amount.

Look at the picture and how it is mounted below a deck rail. That means that it also collects rain that bounces off the rail. I tested ours twice now against a simple cylinder I set on the rail. The rain gauge both times showed twice the rain totals as the cylinder collected.
