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 collection flute, the measurement tube rises to show water accumulation. To paraphrase the great man himself, "Eureka! That's cool!"

The 8 inch molded resin rain gauge can be mounted to a fence using the included brass wood screws, to a deck rail or the stake can be pushed into the soil of a yard, garden or pot. 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?

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 its pricer cousins but at a lower cost. The rain gauge passed up using a glass measurement tube in favor of bright blue polycarbonate plastic - it's unbreakable and frost proof. Includes a five-year manufacturer warranty.

Frost proof? Yes, you can you leave the "World's Coldest Rain Gauge" outside year round as it can withstand years of frigid, snowy winters. As soon as the snow melts, this rain gauge will be back doing what it does best; measuring rainfall.

 

 

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.

I bought this for a Christmas gift but it is very nice. I already have one of my own and it is easy to read from a distance because of the large numbers. Easy to attach to deck rail or get the one with the stake and plant it in the yard or a big decorative pot. You will love it!

I am very disappointed that these came in plain brown boxes with no picture on even name on the outside or nothing on the inside telling about that they are the Coolest Rain Gauge, not sure I am going to give them to my nephews for Christmas as they live out of state from me and I would not even be with them to say "hey look up this web site so you can see what they are", wish the company put someone in the box or on the box telling what they are, I am afraid they will open the box and say" what the heck what is this and has our aunt lost it. ha ha..may return them not yet sure

We haven't had any monsoons this season for a real field test but I poured water into the gauge to test it - and it is awesome. I love that it is reasonably priced, unobtrusive, and can stay out over winter.

Can't give a performance review since I have not installed the rain gauge. Looks really neat and look forward to seeing how it performs. I thought from the description on your web site that it could be used in freezing temperatures, but realized after receiving it that it should be emptied before freezing temperatures.

I received the rain gauge as a a few days before Isaias came through. It was great to be able to see how quickly the gauge filled from the dry comfort of indoors, although we got so much rain I did have to go out to empty it. Hoping it lasts well for years to come.
