Tipping Bucket Rain Gauges

WeatherShack is the weather station Superstore for tipping bucket rain gauges. Below you can browse our rain gauges that feature a self-emptying "tipping bucket" collection system. Rainfall impacts all of us, from the lack of rain during times of drought to the dangers of flash floods when we receive too much rain too fast.

Self-emptying technology uses two small "buckets" mounted on a fulcrum (balanced like a see-saw). The tiny buckets are manufactured with tight tolerances to ensure that they hold an exact amount of precipitation. The tipping bucket assembly is located underneath the rain collector, which funnels the precipitation to the buckets. As rainfall fills the tiny bucket, it becomes overbalanced and tips down, emptying itself as the other bucket pivots into place for the next reading. The action of each tipping event triggers a small switch that activates the electronic circuitry to transmit the count to the digital display. On a wireless rain gauge, that count is transmitted via a radio signal.
