Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 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. July 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Digital Rain Gauge I couldn't calibrate this unit so I had to call Accu Rite's tech support and discovered that there was an error in the manual's calibration procedure. The calibration procedure tells you to dump 8 oz. of water into the collection unit and turn the calibration screws until you get a reading of 2.2". Actually the number should read 1.68". After I used the correct calibration number, it has worked just fine. The manual is available online. June 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, great value! I purchased this rain gauge for my workplace as we are required to measure rainfall as part of our storm water pollution prevention plan. The combination of the device's ability to record rainfall daily and retain that information for a period of time was critical as was the ability to monitor the information somewhat remotely. The range of the device is good. For what it does and what we needed, I could not find a better value. Even though I have had to replace it due to the monitor breaking (fell on the floor and cracked), the gauge itself has worked well with the only maintenance required being to change the batteries once every 6 months, even with high rainfall averages that are seen in our part of the country.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressive hi-tech Really a clever design. So far it seems to work great. I didn't bother to check the calibration, but good to know that this Is possible. Selecting an open array that is protected and level was not easy. but being self emptying is a great feature of this design. June 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very good value. Perfect for the home user The display is easy to set and easy to use. Maintenance for cleaning the outside unit and replacing batteries is not difficult. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good but not great I have two of these and enjoy knowing how much rain we actually receive versus the weather station miles away. It does measure a little less than actual, but good enough for my needs. My only complaint is the plastic tabs that hold the collector to the base break off after years in the sun. May 19, 2015
