We Make Rain Fun!
A modern twist on a classic device, the World's Coolest Rain Gauge® is the original, award-winning floating rain gauge®. Based on the Archimedean principle of water displacement, the measurement tube rises from the outer collection flute to show water accumulation. It’s practical, fun...and very cool!
Our rain gauges are made in the USA with up to 80% domestic components. Assisted by a collection of brilliantly quirky machinery and imaginatively repurposed gizmos, we fabricate, test, pack and ship the World's Coolest Rain Gauge® worldwide.
The World's Coolest Rain Gauge Company® is based in Gardiner NY. We've been making rain gauges in the beautiful Hudson Valley since 1999. Thank you for supporting another small but mighty American business!
I purchased a metal rain gauge and a resin one was sent to me by mistake. Moira in Customer Relations sent me a metal one immediately. It's gorgeous! And I still have the lovely resin one, too. How's that for service? AA+
The rain gauge repair kit worked as expected.
Have had the rain gauge for many years until I noticed the readings didn’t seem correct. Realized the foam was no longer attached to the tube and that it was quite weathered. The Birds Unlimited store where we purchased it told me I could order replacement parts direct from the company. I received the reply foam kit very promptly and installed it into the rain gauge. Now it just needs to rain.
After having the World's Coolest Rain Gauge for 3 years, I found I needed to replace the foam float located in the indexed tube. Easy Peasy! From ordering, to video, to repair, no problems encountered. Thanks!
The repair kit I ordered worked great for repairing my rain gauge. It works just like new again.
Once we figured out that the lack of rain gauge response was the result of damage to the blue foam core (perhaps by some wanton animal), we ordered a replacement kit, which was delivered expeditiously. The repair was easy-peasy, and we are thrilled to have our World's Coolest Rain Gauge back in the business of gauging rain, instead of just looking cool!
I have had this rain gauge for quite a few years and the foam float finally was in need of replacement. I searched pricing and perceived quality, and buying directly from the Worlds Coolest Rain Gauge it was price compatible and included free shipping. The kit includes easy to understand instructions and cement to secure your float foam into the tube. The website and videos are very accurate in representing the product and how to replace the float. Their shipping was quick and communications about the shipment was accurate and timely. Now, if it would just rain.
Old tube wore out after 15 years. Replacement tube got me back in business and the world’s coolest rain gauge is like new again!
20+ years after buying and using a copper World's Coolest Rain Gauge, the numbers on the blue tube were getting hard to read. The new tube works perfectly and it's like having a new rain gauge.
Great replacement and great service.
I was excited to receive the foam replacements; they arrived just in time to show our 4” of rain here in the desert! Thanks for being prompt.
It is a wonderful gauge that can be placed outside and viewed from inside the home. It is durable, with no glass to be frozen and broken during freezing weather. It is simply made and the stratiform repair is available and free shipping.
Great product & excellent service
Ordered a foam repair kit for my rain gauge. Easy to repair, and it works great. Thanks👍
I had to replace the plastic collection tube with a copper one when the squirrels chewed a whole in it. The order process was easy and delivery was quick.
