The solid copper flute collects the water, and the extremely durable, blue polycarbonate measuring tube with a calibrated float sits down inside the flute. As water fills the flute, the blue tube floats up, displaying the measurement. And unlike most rain gauges, the numbers are visible from a great distance.
This model is portable and compact--made for a tabletop or any flat surface you put it on. The rain gauge is held in a sturdy steel mount that's powder-coated for rust resistance, and each one is proudly handmade in the USA! Dimensions: 9" tall, holds 6" of rain.
The copper flute is 1.5" wide (id) x 6" high. The inner blue tube is 1.375 id x 1.5 od x 6" long.
