Copper Rain Gauge
IF IT FLOATS YOUR BOAT
“Eureka!” cried Archimedes as he leapt from his bath and went running naked through the streets of Syracuse, Sicily. Apparently he was very excited about discovering how the whole buoyancy thing works. Sadly, the legend probably isn’t true, but his famous principle is. This copper gauge lets you see it in action every time it rains.
Archimedes’ Principle—which states that the upward buoyant force exerted on anything immersed in fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid that the object displaces—is why boats float. It’s also the reason the tube in this rain gauge rises as its base fills with water. Known as a pluviometer to science types (you know, the ones who might enjoy hearing all this Archimedes stuff when you show them your cool new gadget), it’s available in a patio-ready tabletop version or on a garden stake. Made in New Paltz, New York.
The rainwater tester uses the original floating rain gauge to measure rainfall, monitor sprinkler output and save water.
The rain gauge can accurately measure the collected rainwater, record the result, empty it, and prepare for the next rain.
Easy to use
No assembly required. Select an unobstructed location, put your rain gage out and wait for rain.
Made of high quality ABS material, which will not break, turn yellow or become turbid due to long term exposure in natural environment.
Scope of application
The rain tester is perfectly suitable for garden, vegetable field, lawn, flower bed, landscape and other places.
Please don’t remove the foam float inside the rainfall measurement tube.
Gauge: 6" H x 3" diameter
