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!
Let customers speak for us
Beautiful and perfect!
Tube gauge assembly came quickly with standard shipping.
Love our rain gauge!
We received the replacement tube just before big rainstorm hit. I’m happy we were able to find the replacement tube rather having to replace entire rain gauge.
I have had the copper rain gauge for many years and it has been my favorite gauge and very accurate. Overtime the foam inside deteriorated and this was the perfect fix. Good price and came as expected, Easy to replace foam.
This rain gauge I owned several years ago. It was my favorite but lost it when moving after selling our house. While looking for another one on the internet I saw the same rain gauge and purchased it immediately. I love this rain gauge and we just had rain in the past 24 hours and the national weather showed 1.1 inches of rain and my beautiful rain gauge showed the same. Love the looks of this gauge.
Glade to finally find a replacement love this rain guage
We were away while a heavy rain was followed by hard freeze in Maryland. Leaks ensued. Does the copper tube survive this? I suppose even it may split after multiple freezes? Tough problem. Wrap with heater tape?
My order was delivered quickly a d allowed me to restore my rain gage.
Thank you for your effective support.
On e I figured out the best way to clamp to the deck railing, everything else was easy peasy. Having my husband wish for rain is a new experience! 😉. We had family in over the weekend for a late Christmas celebration, and he had to troop everyone out there to show them. The gauge is aesthetically perfect, and is the end of a long search for a gauge that looks good, is durable, and WORKS. Thank you!
My husband thought the gage was so beautiful, he was afraid to put it outside because it might get stolen.
Everything was great. Quick service, just what I needed. !!
We love the promptness of your company in getting our order to us. You are very professional and customer oriented. Loved doing business with you!
After 12 years of use the foam in the bottom of my original tube started deteriorating and falling apart and the top numbers were no longer legible. The copper tube holder had some sediment on it but I soaked and cleaned it with Citric Acid and a little scrubbing with a tooth brush and it came out looking like new. I decided to just order a replacement tube. The tube was ordered and received within a few days and my gauge is now back to working as good as new. Not bad after 12 years of use and now good for another 12 years.
My dad will love it!
We were sad that our rain gauge would no longer work because the foam had deteriorated. It was many years old--what did we expect!? Replacement was easy and we are no longer sad. The shipping was amazingly fast too! Thank you World's Coolest Rain Gauge Company.
