I originally bought this waterfall rain gauge at our local Lowes a few years ago. With the larger-sized container and huge numbers, we were able to attach the holder to an inconspicuous spot of our furthest deck railing and still be able to read the gauge from inside the house. And it worked great for many years until this winter when it finally developed a tiny crack. I ordered a new one from Amazon. It's the exact same design as it was years ago; so I was able to just put the new measuring container into our existing holder.
The only small issue that we've had with it is the floating red plastic guide. The rectangular piece continually floats on the water within and more easily allows you to read (from a distance) where the water level is. Only problem is that 2-3 times a year we get major pounding rain storms which exceed the 6" capacity. Sometimes I go running out to empty it as it fills; but most times I choose to stay dry in the house. In these instances, we've occasionally had to go looking for the small red strip because the torrential rain washes it out of the container once it reaches the top. Not a regular occurrence, thankfully; but it can happen...and has :)
My only complaint is with the screws provided. I had this up 10 days before having to take it down to stain the deck -- in that short time, the screws were 100% rust since they sit down in a little well. I tossed those, went to the local hardware, and got brass screws. Better to do this from the beginning.
I do wonder a little about accuracy. We had a "tropical storm" this week -- my neighbor down the hill says they had 4"; I had 6" according to my gauge. Perhaps hers is wrong!
However, the gauge reads between two of my neighbors (one reads high, one reads low each time it storms) so I'm good with this units rain capturing and measuring performance.
Unit is mounted ~15 feet from sliding door and red float and large numbers with the dark wood deck backdrop make it just readable from indoors. Pleased with this aspect.
Not great, not garbage. Was hoping for more but would recommend for those looking for something a little different.

While the size and easeability to read this is great, I don't believe that the holder, or part you put on the fence, is strong enough to hold it if there's much water in it. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Liz Montgomery
