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. Measures up to 5-1/2" of rain. Solid copper tube weathers to an attractive patina. Includes steel mounting stake.

Floating Rain Gauge

Comments about Floating Rain Gauge:
I would welcome any suggestions as to how it is supposed to measure rainfall. Do you take the styrofoam out of the tube? If not, how does it work? So far mine does not measure rain at all.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: The Styrofoam stays in the tube, it's what floats to indicate rainfall. Make sure the gauge is in an open, unhindered location for an accurate reading. Customer Service would be happy to help if you have any other questions, please call 1-800-876-5520.

Beautiful but the float doesn't work!
from Wichita, KS
I was very excited when it came in and put it in the backyard right away. After the first rain I went to see how much rain we had gotten and the measure tube had not moved even though we had gotten 1.5" of rain. I thought perhaps I didn't seat it in properly, so I took it out and tried it again. It rained yesterday and it didn't move again. Also, it's hard to empty . . .
total waste of money
from Goose Creek, SC
We had over 6 inches of rain in two days but never once did the blue tube move like it should have it worked with water displacement. The water just dropped into the container with no displacement whatsoever of the blue tube. Very disappointed.

We tried everything, but it would not work. The blue floating cylinder juststayed in the tube. While it looked good in the garden, it is very poorlyconstructed.

does not measure rain
Should have paid attention to the other reviews. I understand water displacement but we had over 6 inches of rain in two days and the blue insert never budged. So disappointed. What a total waste of money.
