OVERVIEW

The RainWise RAINEW series of rain gauges meet NWS specifications for statistical accuracy with their 8" diameter self-emptying tipping bucket rain collector. Every time the bucket tips, a count is transmitted to the indoor display and the bucket empties. You never have to empty the gauge. Just locate the rain gauge in an open area and read the rainfall amount on the indoor display.

The RainWise RAINEW/ACCUM wireless rain gauge eliminates the normal wire connection from the rain gauge to the indoor display. The battery operated transmitter operates up to 300 feet away.

The dual counter indoor console displays Current and Cumulative precipitation amounts, allowing you to track both individual events and keep an annual running total. The current counter is displayed in 100ths of an inch and will indicate up to 9.99" of rain. A button on the counter lets you reset to zero after each rainfall. The cumulative counter is displayed in 10ths of an inch and will indicate up to 99.9" of rain. The current counter may be reset at any time without affecting the cumulative counter. Both counters have a keyhole slot in the back for wall mounting.

The RAINEW collector has a lifetime guarantee. The transmitter, receiver, counters and switches are guaranteed for one year.

The rain gage arrived on time and in perfect condition. Generally I like the Rainwise gage especially since it is the only affordable gage I could find that measures down to one hundredth of an inch. The only feature that I wish it had was a low battery indicator so you don't have to guess when it's time to change them. The owners manual tells you when to change them on a time schedule but that could vary depending on the type and age of the batteries you used. Otherwise a good product.

4 stars Robust Rain Gauge For Home Use

This is a heavy duty and accurate rain gauge for home use. The wireless system works fine with the sensor on the roof and the display on an inside wall of my house. So functionally it is very good. The indoor display is not very pretty to look at. But it can be moved around the house since it is battery operated.

4 stars Rain Gauge Good But Overpriced

Wireless unit was ready to set-up right out of the box and connected immediately from 200 feet away. It has been in use during a half dozen rains, and it appears to be accurate. Considering the price of the unit I was disappointed that it has no recordkeeping ability, and you have to reset both read-outs manually. The read-out unit is not free-standing, and the display is not back-lit, all features that much cheaper units offer. However, as the salesman said, the unit is "robust".

5 stars Excellent Product, so far

Being a meteorologist I wanted a gauge that was accurate and reliable. The Rainwise literature says the gauge meets NWS accuracy standards and the many reviews I read all seemed very positive, while the reviews of others were mixed. This seemed like the way to go. I have only had the gauge for 2 weeks and measured 3 rain events but it appears to be working flawlessly. Directions were very clear, but honestly set up couldn't be much easier. The hardest part was devising a base to keep it stable and level on the large rock I placed it on well away from trees and my house; but that has nothing to do with the design of the gauge. Also appreciated the delivery as promised and the batteries included by WeatherShack.

I have had many rain gauges come & go over the years but this RainWise Wireless tops them all. Set up accurately on the first attempt. Not a lot of bells & whistles that can complement things or break. If you are looking for an accurate Rain Gauge within 1/100th of an each look no further as this could be your best choice
