The 8" diameter collector meets NWS specifications for statistical accuracy. Every time the bucket tips, a count is transmitted to the indoor display and the gauge empties. You never have to empty the gauge. Each tip of the bucket shows one hundredth of an inch on the indoor LCD display. The display will indicate up to 9.99" of rain. A button on the counter lets you reset to zero after each rainfall. Installation to the plug-in counter is a cinch. The long-life alkaline counter battery is included.
Mount this gauge out in your yard and record rainfall inside the house.
Don't forget the rain gauge shelf (see 'May we also suggest:' section below).
