Our Newest Wireless Rain Gauge with Outdoor Temperature and Ten Day Memory is our favorite rain gauge. Having your very own rain gauge can be a fun and exciting way for you and your family to get involved with weather instruments. Rain gauges can also provide useful information to many outdoor enthusiasts. Sit back and enjoy the rain and check it weekly to find out if your lawn or garden needs additional watering. The Benefits of a wireless rain gauge? To derive the best results from a rain gauge, proper placement is crucial. Choose an open space that isn’t blocked by trees, walls or buildings to place the gauge. To gain an accurate picture of the precipitation that has fallen, read and record the measurements each day at approximately the same time. At the end of each week, determine the amount of precipitation that has fallen by adding the daily totals. Simply put, know how much water you’re using to water you lawn or garden. Horticulturists love to measure the precipitation in and out of a green house. Used as an invaluable tool to help farmers and landowners measure moisture. This is a great Rain Gauge for: Home Owners, Farmers, Greenskeepers, Schools, Industries, Contractors, Airports, Orchardists, Hobbyists, Citrus Growers, Conservationists, Truck Gardeners, Government Agencies, Water Departments, Highway Departments, Agriculture and Horticulturists. Extremely accurate measurements! Increments of .04 Inch will allow you to know precisely how much water you are putting down. Avoid getting wet to monitor rainfall with the included wireless display unit. Data is transmitted from a football field away (Wireless transmission range up to 300 feet from PCR800 Wireless Self Emptying Rain Collector) (Up to 100 feet from remote wireless THN802 Wireless Temperature Sensor) All accessories included plus three AA batteries. Replace batteries every 12 months (use Lithium AA batteries for longer battery life and for temperatures that reach minus 22F or below. Daily rainfall and cumulative rainfall history is stored over the past nine days on the main display unit for easy reference. This feature is cool. Set your High daily rainfall alarm so you know when to turn off the irrigation sprinkler for controlled watering. The four line display of the main unit lets you see at a glance the Time, outdoor temperature, rain today and collected rainfall total. Bonus is that it compliments any garden or yard décor. Did you know? Plants need 1”-1.5” of water per week. Deep infrequent waterings are better than several light waterings. Deep Roots require less supplemental irrigation. Taller plants have deeper roots. Irrigation decisions are based on the soil water content. This Oregon Scientific RGR126N is the perfect tool for the monitoring of moisture. The Rain Gauge does so much more that we give it credit for. Enjoy!

Love this practical & efficient unit! I’ve had 2 of these units in 7 years. I work on a ranch, and left the rain gauge outside all year, so the heat smoked the components, I think, which is why we ordered a second unit. I have to keep rain records for the State of CA, and like knowing I can come back after a weekend off and find how much rain fell two days ago, for instance. Or, if I forget to make a note of rainfall, I can go back as many as 9 days to catch up. Handy! Also, love having the indoor/outdoor temp gauges (so I…

Received the station 2 days ago and just set it … Received the station 2 days ago and just set it up today. Followed all the instructions on installing batteries and resetting each unit. Searched and found both outside sensors, rain gage and temp.

That worked by giving me a reading on the in house unit. The problem was I could not reset the rain fall back to zero by pushing the “SINCE” button for a…
