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 could not be any happier. You service was excellent. Instructions could not be any easier
PRODUCT IS THE BEST!
Excellent rain gauge works great, fast delivery.
i was bummed when the gauge stopped reading smaller amounts of rain. then i looked at the bottom of the insert piece and discovered missing foam. this kit did the trick - it was easy to use and the gauge works like new.
I like this rain gurage-easy to read accurate and sturdy. I am on my second foam replacement-they work well.
Twice I have used this fr gifts.
After many years of excellent service I had to replace the tube. Works great once again. Have given several as gifts. the Archimedes principle lives on.
I bought this rain gauge over 10 years ago in copper at a Smith & Hawkins store in Berkeley CA. Lately we found it not measuring so well. Then we decided a search for parts and this was the answer. We bought 2 packages of foam replacements (in case we never can find site again) and it was delivered promptly with BOI shipping charges. Thank you for that. I watched the short video and replaced the foam as instructed with the glue and it was so simple. So happy to have our greatest rain gauge back.
Years ago we bought this rain gauge but then it was designed with a glass tube and copper rim. After a few years we managed to break the glass. When I found the current version, I was excited. Always loved this design. If positioned correctly it can be read a long distance from the house. We now have 3 spread out over our property. Got replacements for the tube to be used in our old one, got another new complete gauge with long pole for further out in the yard and one that sits on the deck. This week we’ve gotten lots of rain (4” today) and they all work great.
I've had The World's Coolest Rain Gauge for many many years, and love it!! Even though I put it in the garage for a few of the coldest months, the foam still gets crumbly with time. So I've just received the replacement tubes which are great! But just as great, if not more so, is this replacement tube that also has the metric measurements (like most of the world, outside the US, actually uses!!). When I write to family in Europe I can now immediately report the millimeters! Thanks for a great product, great service, fast shipping!
Wouldn’t even think of using another rain gauge - this the 1st replacement tube I’ve needed in ~10 years, not because it’s broken but the numbers have finally faded away !!!
Made of quality materials, solid and robust. Really like the way it looks and functions. The plastic scale is easy to read from my porch.
We are very pleased with this rain guage. Can easily see from our kitchen window. Easy to read from about 10 ft distance. Well built and constructed. Highly Recommend!
We run Springbrook Greens Golf Course in Sterling, NY and I was looking for something functional that also added to the aesthetic value of the place. This thing Is perfectly quirky and cool looking. LOVE IT!
Indeed this is a very cool rain gauge. Love the fact the actual measuring part is not glass. I’ve broken or forgot many times to bring my past glass rain gauges indoors before a freeze. So easy to stake evenly in the ground. Accurate too. Checked with local weather department and their report of precipitation amount matched what was in the gauge.
Received two days after ordering and packaged well.
A functional work of art. We enjoy seeing it in the garden. The copper is beautiful.
The rain gauge appears to be well constructed and looks good in the back yard . I appreciate the large print, too. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action and that can't happen soon enough as rain in Kansas is desperately needed.
