DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

Easily and accurately monitor rainfall amounts with the Productive Alternatives Stratus Professional Rain Gauge, a precision weather instrument manufactured to United States National Weather Service and Environment Canada specifications, and is used as its official gauge around the world. Professional and amateur weather observers rely on these standards for accurate rainfall reporting. Constructed of heavy-duty, UV resistant polycarbonate, the Stratus rain gauge will stand up to years of rough weather and full sun without fading or corroding.

A funnel top on the rain gauge catches rain and delivers it to the inner measuring tube, while the extra-large outer cylinder captures rain volumes over one inch (25 millimeters) up to 11 inches (300 millimeters), and can be detached to measure snow, hail, or sleet. The Stratus rain gauge is guaranteed accurate to 1/100th of an inch (0.2 millimeters)! Clear plastic construction provides a see-through design so the gauge is very easy to read. Installing the rain gauge on a post (away from buildings and trees) is easy with its exclusive "Quick Connect" bracket, which lets you quickly remove the cylinder for easy measurement or cleaning (and there are no metal parts to rust!). Includes rain gauge (funnel, inner measuring tube and overflow tube), post mounting bracket and hardware, one-year daily precipitation log, and detailed instructions. This rain gauge is also available in a Metric measurement version.

This is the offical rain gauge for CoCoRaHS, a grassroots volunteer network of backyard weather observers working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow) in their local communities. CoCoRaHS is an acronym for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network. By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, their aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications. CoCoRaHS is now the largest provider of daily precipitation observations in the country. Please click Information about CoCoRaHS to learn more.

It's easy to join, takes only five minutes a day and is a fun way to learn about this wonderful natural resource that falls from the sky. The only requirements to join are an enthusiasm for watching and reporting weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how weather can affect and impact our lives. How often have you seen it rain in your neighborhood and a few blocks away not a drop has fallen? Participating in this program will provide an ever clearer picture of the amount of precipitation that falls in our backyards.

This rain gauge is easy to read, the inner tube fits perfectly into the larger tube, and it seems nice and sturdy. We will see how it fares over time, as my last one deteriorated from sun.

A good solid product. I have a Tempest auto rain gauge also and am finding discrepancies. Tempest always much higher volume. Only had this a week so time will tell something more!

Love it. Neat and simple to install and read. I would suggest a white band behind black scale readings to make more readable.

I've had one a long time but the Arizona sun made it difficult to read.

5 stars Good product.

Good product however, as I live in the Sonoran Desert, I have come to realize this product can take the intense sun exposure for about five years and then it cracks. Nevertheless, I feel five years is adequate as a longevity benchmark for a product like this.
