Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Copperhead Accurite, so glad I found you.
I love it. Easy directions and easy to calibrate. I set it up in my back yard according to directions, and this rain guage works great. We have had several good rains come through recently and it has really proven itself. With El Nino upon us this will be a very valuable tool this winter. I can just sit in my recliner next to the fireplace and read the ditgital read out and stay dry. Thank you for providing this product which is a very reputable company and at a surprisingly low price. I could not find a better price anywhere else. It was out of stock when I was trying to order earlier this year, but they sent me a notafication of it being back in stock and I ordered immediately. It was sent to my local store for pickup. They called me within a week. You can have it sent right to your door,but I thought since I'm really close to my store I would save me some shipping cost.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goodoldon Very happy with my purchase.
Very easy to set up and has worked flawlessly for a couple of weeks. I built a stand for it and attached to the railing on my deck. It is approximately 60 feet from the receiver in my office and it has full power indication for the signal. I actually purchased another one as a Xmas present for my daughter-in-law.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jackhammer A Fantastic Product :)
This is a great product for $20 it is worth far more! I mounted it on the peak of my roof at the end of our house, there are no obstructions there. This is accurate to .01 of an inch. Incredible!!!!!
I have already absolutely recommended this product to who ever would listen.
Buy you won't regret.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by csx4 Excellent product if you care about rainfall amount
This was a replacement for an older model that had lost its range after years of use. This one uses a third battery in the base unit and it works fine. I've found they all need calibration if you care about accuracy. The calibration drawings are reversed in the owners manual. Home Depot has the best price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TFD WORKS VERY WELL, BUT❗️
This unit works very well. If you have the Acurite Internet Bridge, you can see rainfall amount in real time on your smartphone or iPad via the Acurite app. I am able to compare the accuracy of this unit with another rain gauge I own and they read exactly the same!
Now for the not so good news. The outdoor sending unit EATS BATTERIES ALIVE and I'm using Duracell QUANTUM which is supposed to be the longest lasting (and most expensive) battery available.
You will get a low battery alarm in two months or less‼️
So to sum it up, a great rain gauge with internet connectivity that loves to eat batteries :(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonE IMPRESSIVE...THOUGH NOT TOTALLY ACCURATE
It is very impressive to see how it works, and it is very convenient to have. My only problem is that the digital rain gauge is NOT totally accurate. For instance, my Acu-Rite standard rain gauge (positioned approx. 6 inches from the digital rain guage) recently measured 1.875 (1 7/8), while the digital rain gauge measured only 1.6 (more than a quarter inch difference). Yet I still find it impressive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by royb Great rain guage
I have a sprinkler system and this electronic gauge is wonderful. I need a minium of 1 inch of water a week on my lawn. This instrument gives me rainfall down to the .01. It's very simple to look up your rainfall for the last week. It has a history function. You Must follow directions when installing the batteries in the outside an inside units. You must install the batteries in the outside unit first because that is the transmitter. Then do the inside unit because that is the reciever. This instrument even emptys itself. This thing is better than sliced bread..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrpaul Very good
After installing and seeing it work, I must say I truly like not having to reset the daily rain amount. It resets every day's total.
