IT is for measuring rainfall in our garden. It only measures in inches not millilitres so no good in metric countries.
this was a gift for my brother and sister in law - they just built a new lake house and enjoy being outside no matter the weather. I've seen this rain gauge at a friend's house that after a couple of years looked even better than it did new. The quality and durability of this item are a real plus. This rain gauge can be enjoyed for many years to come
We are going to use it for a rain gage. The only downside I see to this is the 20 foot radius you need for it to be out in the open for it to read accurately. It makes sense but my location might be too shaded. Never the less, it will be a great addition to the yard. I'm glad I purchased it. I did try the test and it worked perfect.
Sugar Bear pointed to this on the page of the catalog and said this could be for Mawmaw's garden! AND IT IS!
Given as a gift!
I recommend this item for anyone hard to buy for. It rains almost everywhere and this is truly like an art piece in your yard. Gets more beautiful as it ages. Super easy to use.

Very attractive rain gage that is well made
On the first gauge we bought, the foam inside the blue tube came detached and the gauge stopped working. I contacted the manufacturer and they replaced the blue tube with foam insert promptly, no questions asked, at no cost to us. The gauge is terrific and the company has excellent service too.
We like to see how much rain actually fell.
