Nice!

I bought this as a gift for my father for Father's Day. There was a small issue at the shipping warehouse, and I was shipped the wrong item. However it was resolved quickly and I received the correct Gauge. It is exactly as the picture shows, well constructed and works! My father loves it! I would highly recommend The World's Coolest Rain Gauge in copper!More > < Less

Love It!!!

I bought 3 for Father's Day. One for my husband and 2 for our grandchildren to give their fathers. Our son and son-in-law and their children have enjoyed going out and seeing the rain gauge after our almost daily showers.More > < Less

I've had many other rain gauges that have froze and broke. This one should last forever!

Pretty and unique

I needed a new rain gauge to once again replace one of those giant plastic rain gauges that only last a season or two. This copper rain gauge is pretty and will accent my landscape. Hope it will last many years!More > < Less

Finally a rain gauge that looks great and might last.

Upon the recommendation of a friend who received this as a birthday present, before the monsoons of May set in, I ordered one. As usual, three days passed and a Gromet parcel came... no lingering from Gromet.
The holder is a solid spiral metal coil and rod which inserts easily into the ground.
The cup, and that is what it is, a tulip shaped copper cup is large. No 2 inch rainfall fills this baby.
There is a heavy duty plastic insert, clearly marked in large numbers and 1/4 inch levels which rises as rain accumulates, with a porous styrene float at the bottom of the insert tube.
First results were impressive. Day one measured one inch. NWS said 7/8ths but I allow for local versus area average. Emptied. Day two two and one half inches. NES said 2.5 inches. Emptied. Third rainfall was the flooding in Baltimore at 5 inches, my gauge said 4.5. And there was still room in the cup as well as the gauge.
This is a really well built, well designed gauge. Dog and old person proof.
Highly recommend.

World's Coolest - Rain Gauge

About World's Coolest

Ready for Rainfall

Wondering how long to run your sprinkler? Not sure how much rain fell last night? Determining if your plants and flowers have gotten enough water doesn’t have to involve guesswork. In fact, it can be a work of art.

World’s Coolest Rain Gauge is just what the name suggests—a clever tool that measures how much water your garden gets, either from rainfall or a sprinkler. It’s a functional instrument, plus it adds a fun, sculptural element to your outdoor space.

Created by Moira “Mo” Clune, the gauge uses water displacement to measure rainfall. A copper flute collects the water, and a blue polycarbonate measuring tube with a calibrated float fits inside the collection flute. As water fills the copper flute, the blue tube floats up, displaying the rainfall measurement. Mo uses local sources (all the parts are fabricated within a 50-mile radius of her home base) and she makes each piece by hand in Gardiner, N.Y.

Keeping a steady supply of moisture in the soil is critical for flowers, plants and gardens. With World’s Coolest Rain Gauge, you can keep tabs on water levels with style.
