About My Rain Gauge

The Original Floating Rain Gauge™ is a happy combination of science and style. Based on the Archimedean Principle of water displacement, these rain gauges are practical, fun and very cool.

The gauges and components are made in the US with most materials sourced within a 100-mile radius of New Paltz, NY. This "buy local" approach to manufacturing started out as a necessity — I simply couldn't afford to purchase and store the large quantities of product required by overseas manufacturers. I had been down that road before with other products and found that importing just wasn't suitable for a company as small as mine.

And so I began to hunt for materials locally.

To my delighted surprise, I discovered that the Hudson Valley is chock full of makers and doers of all sorts of things. Steel fabricators. Screen printers. Powder coaters, plastic molders and copper spinners. Who knew. 

And so I developed a small but mighty business around a product that measures rain, an event that not everyone loves but a surprising number of people like to measure.
