Key Rain Gauge Facts

The wireless rain gauge has become a popular choice. With this, you will experience less fuss because, with this updated version of the traditional rain gauge, there are no wires to run .

If you are interested in buying a wireless rain gauge, there are two things in particular that need attention. First the device needs to be mounted within range of the wireless receiver.  Second the device will run on batteries, and if there is not a solar charger included, you will need to replace the batteries periodically. One advantage of modern gauges is that along with the amount of rainfall, additional information is provided, including outdoor temperature, humidity, and more.

Currently, two gauges stand out as being among the best. The Comptus 2502 Rain Gauge is a cost-effective, tipping-bucket style. Although somewhat simplistic, it offers accurate information regarding the rate of rainfall using a time tested design. This gauge with its eight-inch collection funnel is made to specifications established by the US National Weather Service. The Comptus A70-R Rain Gauge Transmitter, is available with several enclosure options for the translator board with NEMA ratings suitable for indoor or outdoor placement.

Regardless of which rain gauges you are most interested in, you always want to buy from a respected and trusted source. This means that you purchase a quality device that has full backing from the manufacturing company and supplier.
