What's So Cool About A Rain Gauge?

Can a rain gauge be cool? Normally, no. But this is the World's Coolest Rain Gauge and it will forever change your mind about the humble pluviometer, an obsolete word for rain gauge, likely from the French word pluviomètre (Latin pluvia, rain + -mètre, meter).

Admittedly, this rain gauge is a little different than most. The numbers on the measurement tube are in reverse order. The tube doesn't hold water. When it's empty, you can't see the numbers. What's going on here? Does this thing even work?

It certainly does. And there's centuries of science backing it up. The theory behind this pop-up rain gauge is based on Archimedes' principle of water displacement. As water flows into the solid copper collection flute, the measurement tube rises to show water accumulation. To paraphrase the great man himself, "Eureka! That's cool!"

The 24 inch solid copper rain gauge with metal stake is great for low-growing garden beds, next to a patio or deck as an attractive accent with PURPOSE! Inside the flute, a blue polycarbonate tube and foam float wait patiently for rain. As rain falls into the collection flute, the blue tube rises to show the accumulated precipitation. Cool, right?

 

World's Coolest Rain Gauge 24-inch Copper with Metal Stake

 

Okay, It's Cool But What Else?

Some of the many advantages of the World's Coolest Rain Gauge include:

Usability - The measurement tube is clearly marked in 1/4 inch increments and measures up to five inches of precipitation.

Visibility - The measurement tube floats up, so you can read it from up to 30 feet away, just by observing how much of the tube is showing!

Durability - The solid copper flute will weather to a graceful patina over time, but it will not rust, rot or crack. The stake is powder-coated for rust resistance. The rain gauge passes up using a glass measurement tube in favor of bright blue polycarbonate plastic - it's unbreakable, freeze proof and will not be damaged in temps below 32 degrees. Of course if there's rainfall in the tube the precipitation will freeze but not damage the tube. The copper flute has a lifetime manufacturer warranty. The plastic and steel parts have a five-year manufacturer warranty.

 

 

A new twist on a classic device, the World's Coolest Rain Gauge is not flimsy or cheesy. The World's Coolest Rain Gauge is easy to read and fun to use. Empty, it looks like an attractive, all-season decorative accent. It's made entirely in the USA and most of the parts are sourced within a 30 mile radius of the company's upstate New York studio. Assisted by a collection of brilliantly quirky machinery and imaginatively repurposed gizmos, they fabricate, test, pack, and ship out the World's Coolest Rain Gauge. We think you'll agree: it's practical, fun... and very cool.

Since a previous glass rain gauge shattered, I was looking for something durable. This one is! The solid copper is heavy and good looking. I like the displacement method used, so the turquoise cylinder rises, and can easily be read from a distance. I am very pleased with this rain gauge!!

Copper container is made well. The plastic insert and foam in it and lights the plastic insert when it starts to fill up. Not sure how long the foam will last. Hope it lasts a long time. Looks great.
