Empty it by dumping upside down. You can widen the holes carefully with a drill bit or a file.

is there a stand that holds the rain gage in the ground?

Bought it to replace my broken rain gauge. I liked the larger gauge with bigger numbers that is easy to read.

How do you empty the gauge?

Easy to see scale and it's simple and convenient
One reviewer said you have to pull it out of the ground to read it. I don't know what kind they have but mine disconnects from the ground stack very easily, emptied and replaced back on the ground stack that comes with it. Precise Measurements are not important if I want to just know approximately how much rain we got. For the money it's great and I love it.!!!

Pretty good rain gauge that is fairly accurate but will crack somewhat easily in the cold. This gauge can be stuck in the ground/a pot or mounted on a fence or railing to measure rainfall. I also use this gauge when watering the lawn so I know when to move the sprinkler. I used this gauge the last three years and get good measurements but I left water in it once during a night in the 20s and it cracked. I was able to repair the crack with clear caulk but it would be nice to not have to monitor it too much during cold months, ie dumping out water constantly during the winter. It is made in China.

It's been dry here with little rain. So it took me a while to notice that the level markings were weird. Instead of 4 marks between 0 and 1/2 inch (which would be equivalent to 10ths of an inch), there are 3 marks. Who measures rainfall in 1/8 ths of an inch? The HD web page shows 1/10 ths markings.

You can easily read gauge from inside the house. Great that you can secure it in the ground or on a fence. Also, wide opening allows for easy cleaning of any mold or debris build-up. Well worth the money.

Disappointed in this purchase. The stake cracked and there doesn't appear to be a way to drain the water aside from dumping it each time it fills with water.
