Pretty, but in accurate

6/9/2019 by Kelli

I love the look of this rain gauge. The contrasting metals are eye-catching, and I get many compliments on it. However, it's not accurate. I have 2 other rain gauges that I can compare it to. This gauge shows half as much rain as the other gauges.More > < Less

Very disappointed in this rain gauge

4/19/2016 by Judi

I received this rain gauge as a present (I had asked for it). I couldn't wait to use it! I love the design. It's quite unique. However...> However... we recently had a huge downpour in Houston. Yesterday morning at around 2:30 I checked the gauge. It showed that we'd gotten a little over 4". Several hours later, a very large storm front came through. It was like a wall of water pouring from the skies.

At about 8:30 a.m. I checked the gauge again. I thought that we had gotten much more than 6" of rain (which we did), but the rain gauge was still showing the same measurement as it did at 2:30 a.m.! There was nothing blocking the cylinder, so that's not a possibility for the incorrect measurement.

I realize that there's no way the gauge could have registered the 10.88 inches we received in the 8-9 hours (since its maximum is 6"), but the fact that it didn't go over the 4" mark is very disturbing. And I don't know how to remedy that.

I guess I'll just have to brave the lightning and thunder the next time we're expecting more than 4" of rain. I'll have to take the measurement, empty it, and start again.

Sure glad I just bought some foul weather protection!

doesn't work for us

12/15/2018 by Rose Marie

I kept thinking that we hadn't had sufficient rain for this to work. Last night in our old funnel type rain gauge we had 2.5 inches. Nothing registered on this beautiful copper rain gauge. I bought it as a birthday present for my husband way back in July. Because of outdoor construction of a sidewalk and driveway, we didn't install it in the front garden until November. This is the first substantial rain since then and I was disappointed.More > < Less

Not durable

The foam float is not durable. Mine is falling apart after less than 60 days.

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.
