Counterfeit Rain Gauges

There are counterfeit rain gauges showing up online. Aside from copying my designs, they're lifted my photos and sales copy. It's frustrating. These are low quality plastic copies that are inaccurate and short-lived. They are very inexpensive for good reason.

It's hard to tell these fakes from the Original Floating Rain Gauge® at first glance but once they've spent some time in your garden, you'll know. The outer collection container will deform in bright sunlight and burst in hard freezes. The foam inside the measurement tube deteriorates within weeks. These plastic rain gauges will not survive outdoors and are simply one more thing that will end up in the waste stream. Please don't buy them! If our rain gauges are out of your price range, visit a reputable retailer to find a low-cost gauge that will meet your needs. There are lots of great, inexpensive rain gauges out there that are made by ethical companies that don't violate the copyrights and trademarks of small American businesses or contribute to the pollution and waste associated with counterfeit goods. Support real innovation and hard work but buying from authentic and reputable companies.

Counterfeiting is more than just annoying; it's harmful. It hurts the people who are trying to bring you genuine, quality products and supports sketchy companies that may exploit human rights, labor laws and environmental regulations. 

If you've already been tricked by these knock-offs, do everyone a favor. Leave an honest review. Call them out for scamming you. It's not just about venting; it's about helping others steer clear of the same trap. So, next time you're shopping online and something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Help keep the market clean and creative!
