Additional Information

NEW | Floating Copper Rain Gauge is Easy to Read

  • Decorative gauge for monitoring water from rain or sprinkler
  • Measures up to 5-1/2" of rain
  • Includes steel mounting stake

As rainfall fills the copper tube, the blue float rises to indicate the amount. Use it in the garden or lawn to measure how much water nature (or your sprinkler) has applied. Solid copper tube weathers to an attractive patina. Place in an open area for accuracy.

I would NOT buy this again

Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

I too bought this for my husband for Christmas so we could see how much rain had fallen
from the house. It does not work at all. Very disappointing.

Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

It did not work at first. The Styrofoam insert raised to the top, rather than showing the proper water level. We fiddled with the styrofoam piece, while keeping the water in the gauge, we pushed the styrofoam back down and we were able to read the amount of rain. four inches in the past 5 days.

    We love Gardeners Supply and have been totally satisfied with all products except a tad disappointed in this one. Does not always measure correctly, and sometimes it does? Not sure what the problem is? I have to say we were gone this past weekend and it rained the whole time we were gone and came back and it measured 3.5" of rain. It was close to what was reported by other neighbors with different gauges.

    Looks great - Just doesn't work!

    Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

    I purchased this for my husband for Christmas. Spring rains are here and we have had over 3" and the gauge just doesn't work. The "floating" tube does not raise. We took it in, filled the copper tube with water and the blue plastic tube, (which is suppose to float) just sank to the bottom, even with the blue styrofoam insert it. Called Customer, service they were happy to send another on as this one surely was malfunctioning, and the second one was just like the first - it just doesn't work. Sorry, but I would like a refund next time. Your other products are so great I can't imagine this one is a dud.

        It has rained for 3 days now...my yard is flooded...and yet this rain gauge does not float.
        I would really like my money back. I should have read the reviews before I asked my grandkids to buy it for us!! Very, very disappointed. The other thing we asked for doesn't look much good either, but I haven't tried it yet. (hummingbird feeder)

        I like this rain gauge right in the garden so I can readily see if I need to water or not.

        Received as a gift. No matter how much water in the cylinder the plastic tube does not float. The item is totally useless as a rain gauge.

            Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

            I received this lovely rain gauge for Christmas (because I turned down the corner of the page & circled the product for Santa). Unfortunately, as other recent reviews have stated it did not rise when it rained. The plug inside the blue tube rose instead of the whole tube rising. I was really disappointed as it is a good looking accessory for our garden.

            I called Customer Service and spoke to a lovely lady who could have not been nicer or more supportive. The unit is currently on b/o so hopefully the new ones will work correctly and I will have my wanted accessory prior to our rainy season.

            I cannot recommend this to a friend but I can recommend Gardeners and their Customer Service. Hopefully, I will be back soon with a report that the new one works!
