Made to the specifications of the United States Weather Bureau, this is a precise, dependable rain gauge. The first inch of rain funnels through the 4" diameter top into a specially calibrated measuring tube – even a light shower registers clearly in increments of 100ths of an inch. Additional rainfall up to a total of 11" is contained in the outer cylinder until measured separately in the calibrated tube.
Intended for year-round exposure to the elements, the gauge is made from thick, transparent polycarbonate with high resistance to UV, heat and cold.
The 14" tall gauge slides onto an included 11" × 3" post bracket (mounts on 2 1/4" centers; screws included).
Made in USA.
