Not entirely happy

7/6/2015 by Angie

I purchased this rain gauge as a gift and I was disappointed to see the tube has the words "World's Coolest" on it. At first I thought possible it was a sticker that could be removed but that does not seem to be the case. While I like the gauge and design I think having wording printed on the tube takes away from the look and cheapens it. I have purchased this same gauge from another site as a gift and I do not remember the tube having wording printed on it.More > < Less

New float needed

I have had one of these for years... had to throw the float out after two years. The foam breaks down eventually. Would love a new float!!!!

FUTURE BIRTHDAY PRESENT

bought these as a B/D gift for my daughter...haven't yet given them to her and she probably won't get full use out of them until next spring so won't be able to write a review until that time.More > < Less

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!

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.
