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.

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!

      Doesn't work very good

      I wish my spouse would have read the reviews before buying. As many other reviewers have said it doesn't accurately measure the amount of rain. I have experiment with adding various amounts of water and until you get to about two inches it doesn't begin to rise. At about two inches it shows about 3/4 of an inch. At 4 inches it shows about 1.5 inches.
      Don't waste your money on this product.

      Given as a gift to my father who was impressed by the look of it. Seems to function well (according to his report), but since it was a Christmas gift, he has not had the chance to fully use it (things are frozen where he is right now).

      As I said the tube doesn't float up so you have no indication of how much rain you got, very disappointing.
      It simply doesn't work.

      Junk

      By Mitch

      from Magnolia, TX

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

      I was looking for an extra little Christmas present for my wife and came across this "floating copper rain gauge". At the time of my order there were 2 reviews, both of which were positive.

      At some point the maker of the product started using a blue plastic tube which does not float so there is no way in the world this gauge is going to work. Somebody, either at this place of business or the manufacturer decided to take a crudely cut piece of Styrofoam, spray paint it, and cram it into the bottom of the tube in a very poor attempt to make it float. The rocket scientist who made this crude "patch" cut it too small to fit snugly so when water is added to the gauge, the Styrofoam floats and the plastic tube remains submerged. I cut a piece of pool noodle and fit it to the tube but the plastic tube is so heavy and dense that the gauge is off by about 50% at capacity and will register nothing at all until about 2" of water is added. I pulled my pool noodle piece from the tube and am returning the piece of junk in the condition in which I received it.

      I have some major heartburn at having to pay shipping either way since this is a product that was "patched" either by this company or the manufacturer. I will have over $25 in round trip shipping for the unique experience of giving a totally disappointing, defective gift to my lovely wife, not to mention the hassle of the order and return process.

                  Comments about : Floating Copper Rain Gauge:

                  The plastic they use must not be consistent, there is poor quality control. THe plastic is too dense to float, even when totally full the tube wont float. I even put a cylinder of styrofoam attached to the bottom and it still wouldn't float. My husand was so ticked that I paid this much money for something so useless that I'm now not permitted to spend any more money here, nice job gardeners,...
