Overall this is a nice rain gauge at a good price. It is relatively large and fits nicely on my deck railing. While it's made of plastic, it does not seem flimsy. The one thing I found was that the container is clear, and while the numbers are large, it still makes them hard to see, especially from a distance. So I ended up putting a white backing on the outside behind the numbers, and that makes them much easier to see.

We've gone through a number of rain gauges over our lifetime...most of them the skinny upright tube types. As far as the durability of those tubes, it never seemed to matter how much we spent on it. Whether it was a plastic tube in a plastic holder or a glass tube in a metal holder...if we forgot to bring the tube in before a freeze, there would be just enough of a crack in the bottom that the tube would no longer hold water.

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 :)

Fast shipping and packed nicely! Love the large numbers when looking out my door to see the amount of rain we have had. Make sure you level the top when attaching into the board to ensure accurate readings.

This rain gauge was easy to install, I attached it to the deck railing, facing it toward my sun-room windows. It is easy to read the gauge without going outside. The red plastic marker is very visible. Just be sure to catch the marker and put it back in the gauge when emptying out the rain water.

After buying multiple small rain gauges that usually cracked in a short time, we decided to spend a little extra and try this one. We have been very pleased. It is so large that we can read it from within the home. It is very easy to empty and seems like a heavy duty plastic that will hold up over time.

Finding a gauge that works on a deck that has a railing isn't as easy as one might think -- the overhang shields the gauge, or some sort of spacer has to be added to the mount; the only other option is one of those tubes that is mounted on top of the railing -- with a life span of a nanosecond. This gauge solves that problem! I love how it looks and being able to read it easily. I will take it in when it gets cold -- seems like an obvious thing.

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!

At first, we liked the appearance of this rain gauge and the floating marker to aid in seeing the liquid level. As other reviewers have noted, the numbers and level marks are relatively easy to read from a short distance as long as there is something placed behind the clear plastic container to contrast the numbers and hash marks. The greatest disappointment is that within the first few months, the plastic container began to 'yellow' and the floating red marker has become a washed-out, sorta pink color(barely visible from a distance). Within 6 months, the plastic container was not only a sunbaked yellow but had also developed a haze similar to what you would see on aged automotive headlight housings. We purchased this item in April of 2013 and now, a year later, it's become extremely brittle and has cracked - rendering it completely useless. Also, as noted by other reviewers, this rain gauge consistently measures almost 2wice the amount measured by two other rain gauges on our property (both digital). Bottom line: it's susceptibility to sunlight and inaccurate measurement capability makes it bad choice as an outdoor weather instrument.

We have a deck outside our screened-in backporch, and this gauge is mounted on the top of a vinyl railing going around the perimeter of the deck. What makes this such a good product is that it's easily viewed by us, (even w/older eyes)from inside the porch because of the red plastic piece that floats inside the gauge. You just have to bring it inside once Winter temps start staying below 40 degrees.
