What's So Cool About A Rain Gauge?

Can a rain gauge be cool? Normally, no. But this is the World's Coolest Rain Gauge and it will forever change your mind about the humble pluviometer, an obsolete word for rain gauge, likely from the French word pluviomètre (Latin pluvia, rain + -mètre, meter).

Admittedly, this rain gauge is a little different than most. The numbers on the measurement tube are in reverse order. The tube doesn't hold water. When it's empty, you can't see the numbers. What's going on here? Does this thing even work?

It certainly does. And there's centuries of science backing it up. The theory behind this pop-up rain gauge is based on Archimedes' principle of water displacement. As water flows into the molded resin collection flute, the measurement tube rises to show water accumulation. To paraphrase the great man himself, "Eureka! That's cool!"

The 24 inch molded resin rain gauge with metal stake is great for low-growing garden beds, next to a patio or deck as an attractive accent with PURPOSE! Inside the flute, a blue polycarbonate tube and foam float wait patiently for rain. As rain falls into the collection flute, the blue tube rises to show the accumulated precipitation. Cool, right?

 

World's Coolest Rain Gauge 24-inch Molded Resin with Metal Stake

 

Okay, It's Cool But What Else?

Some of the many advantages of the World's Coolest Rain Gauge include:

Usability - The measurement tube is clearly marked in 1/4 inch increments and measures up to five inches of precipitation.

Visibility - The measurement tube floats up, so you can read it from up to 30 feet away, just by observing how much of the tube is showing!

Durability - The molded resin flute has the same durability as the solid copper model, but with a lower cost. The metal stake is powder-coated for rust resistance. The rain gauge passes up using a glass measurement tube in favor of bright blue polycarbonate plastic - it's unbreakable and freeze proof. However, the molded resin outer collection tube is ABS plastic and not guaranteed freeze safe. The manufacturer recommends it be brought in during freezing temperatures. The plastic and steel parts have a five-year manufacturer warranty.

 

A new twist on a classic device, the World's Coolest Rain Gauge is not flimsy or cheesy. The World's Coolest Rain Gauge is easy to read and fun to use. Empty, it looks like an attractive, all-season decorative accent. It's made entirely in the USA and most of the parts are sourced within a 30 mile radius of the company's upstate New York studio. Assisted by a collection of brilliantly quirky machinery and imaginatively repurposed gizmos, they fabricate, test, pack, and ship out the World's Coolest Rain Gauge. We think you'll agree: it's practical, fun... and very cool.

5 stars Love the copper rain guage

Bought the resin gauge because the inside of the copper one stopped working and there were no replacement parts available. I think the rein is working OK. I just love both of them and had a stand with a base made so I could use it on my deck instead of on the ground. You night think about offering something like that. Thanks

I love this rain gauge. I can look out the window of my house and instantly see how much rain has fallen. It is an ingenious design. I could not be more pleased with my purchase.

I bought one of these rain gauges several years ago and has and still does look great and works well. I decided to buy a friend one for his birthday and he too is favorably impressed with the rain gauge. Great product and excellent customer service

I live in Montana and won't be able to try it until spring. Hopefully it won't crack if it freezes with water in it.

5 stars Who wouldn't love an awesome rain gauge as a gift?
06/03/2021
Very well made and great concept to gauge rain! Easy to see from inside while you stay dry inside your home. Plan to buy as gifts for family and friends. Fast shipping and great communication. Hope it proves to be rustproof as we live in south Texas, with excessive humid and damp climate.

Rugged, good appearance and accurate. Exactly what is important about rain gauges. I have four at one home in Northern Michigan with a large garden area and one on the patio of our townhouse in Chicago.

2 stars I was a bit disappointed
05/14/2021
I guess I didn't read the product description. I have seen these rain gauges in garden shops and I thought this one was actually copper metal or not plastic and I guess I didn't realize it until I picked it up to empty it the first time and I was shocked that it was plastic

This looks pretty in our tropical garden-and it is very functional by "pushing up" the inches of rain so that you can see it from a short distance.

I received this gauge as a gift several years ago. I was ordering replacement tube and foam and decided to but a gauge for my son-in-law to use in his garden. The design is very aesthetically pleasing in any garden.
