Answer: 
I mounted it on a very small platform on top of a 1 1/4" diameter steel conduit about 4 1/2 feet above a shrubbery bed and 2' of conduit in the ground. Keep in mind, if you're using it with the Acurite Internet Bridge, both units need to be fairly close together. If you're only using the display unit that cones with it, distance between the two, is not an issue at all.

Answer: 
I mounted the outside unit on a fence not under a tree and made certain to have the top above the top of the fence. Inside I put the receiver on a table in the family room.

Answer: 
We have our collector sitting on a short stone (landscaping wall block) wall. I was hoping they sold some sort of accessory for stick mounting, but I may have to make something up. I have the collector sandwiched between 2 bricks to keep it from falling over with our Kansas winds. It has some delicate workings inside the unit that I'm afraid might be damaged in a fall.

Answer: 
No only the date & time of the rain event. If the unit is used with the Acurite Internet Bridge and the Acurite app, some very good graphical data is available to the user via a smartphone or an iPad. I wish Home Depot would begin selling the Acurite Internet Bridge. Their seems to be a lot of interest in this technology from online reading.
Hope this info is useful to you.

Answer: 
I've only had a few minutes to play with the unit. From what I understand, it will measure rainfall for a period of up to eight hours. If it rains for more than eight hours, it will continue with that recording (if it rains for 12 hours it will keep that as one measurement/recording....and you should probably consider building a boat). If it rains for, say 3 hours, it will time out to the eight hour mark Read More

Answer: 
Yes...it is in a different section of the reporting...and I never used this function because it rained almost every day where I lived anyway. So I was just interested in the amount of rain received each day. But if you need to inspect the duration of each event, YOU CAN (provided it is less than a week)...no, Noah, it won't measure for 40 days!

The question you're asking is not clear but this rain gauge can be connected wirelessly via the Aculink Internet Bridge to your smartphone, iPad, or desktop computer. With that you can see at a glance, your rainfall today, a week, a month, etc. Unfortunately it's not sold by Home Depot ( I wish it was) but is available at Acurite. I have this setup and it works very well. The Acurite Internet Bridge Read More

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beware of out of date Instruction Manual showing model as 00899 instead of 02445SBDI The latest Instruction Manual download from the Acurite web site shows the model as 02445SBDI. This manual provides information about the function and settings for the A-B-C switches found on both items, which was missing in the manual received with the bundle. In general, this downloaded manual is vastly improved and eliminates much confusion. I found that the included screws and washers for securing the Rain Collector base fell out onto the floor while opening the Clamshell Packaging. They should have been secured due to the very tiny thin plastic wrap that contained them. June 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product so far I works great. I have not done the calibration of the unit yet but it appears to be close without doing it. I have told several friends about it and they are getting one. I am also going to buy one for a Christmas present. July 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective Had one for 6+ years. (Got broken by inquisitive neighbor who thought it was a security alarm and tried to disarm it ! ) Back then, I had to try several of these gauges before I found one that worked correctly ! Things have clearly not improved over the years. Tested calibration several times on NEW gauge per instructions. Tried to adjust but calibration screws were frozen-would not turn. Returned gauge to store. Ordered another one. There definitely are quality control issues but when you find a "good" one, you are all set. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by acurite rain gauge i have used several oregon scientific rain collectors in the past. they were very accurate. needed to replace them. the acurite unit is easy to set up and use. but the accuracy of the unit is not as good. it measures roughly 20-25% too low. it sits next to an actual in the ground rain gauge. i will keep it and adjust the unit as described in the user guide. just be aware it will not be as accurate as you would expect. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Rain Gauge Extremely accurate and very easy to read. Blah, Blah May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job, I think! I really can't believe the price on this rain gauge. It has worked for a month. The calibration process was fairly easy, but left me not really sure that this is accurately reporting the rainfall. I plan to buy a simple gauge to test against it as soon as the temperatures stay above freezing. So far, the recorded rainfall is in line with other reports from weather stations. I had no problem getting the two units to communicate, but then, I followed the instructions on which unit to power up first. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by replacement the orginal one lasted about four years, only downside is after installing on the roof it took about 25 days for it to rain. February 25, 2016
