                      Fairly accurate, cheap and straightforward rain gauge for the money. You have to be fairly close to read it and it measures by the 10th of an inch which is standard. It is a tube, so it has a 'miniscus'; you measure the bottom. It is easy to mount on a fence, rail or on a stake which is what I did. The glass tube sits in a malleable metal bracket that is easy to work. I see several one-star review here saying the glass will break in the cold and, yes, it will. However, this is a very cheap rain gauge and the package also warns of this so I will not make a big fuss of it in my review. You get what you pay for and the warning is there. This rain gauge is made in China.

                      Good rain gauge but very weak aluminum stand. The glass gauge is very good but the stand is aluminum and not strong enough to insert firmly into the ground. The aluminum will bend well before you put any significant pressure on it.
