You don’t need to be a professional meteorologist to appreciate the Versatile 6330 Stratus Rain Gauge. However, if you are, you are going to love it.
This rain gauge is a simple instrument that does not require wiring, electrical connections or even batteries. It is easy to install and practical to use during all seasons.
The gauge has a capacity of 11” that provides an inside look into rainfall amounts. You will also gain first hand knowledge of whether or not your garden needs a little extra help staying green and lush throughout the hot summer months. This is a great product whether you are interested in tracking rainfall annually, or you are curious to learn how much rain fell during the night.
The internal tube enables you to collect up to an inch of rain and is designed to measure in increments of 0.01 inches. This measurement allows for a more precise reading. There is an outer cylinder that catches any overflow, which you can pour into the measuring tube to receive the exact measurement. The gauge is also available in a metric measurement model.
Using a precipitation gauge to track the rainfall has never been easier. The durable receptacle is made of butyrate that lasts through all kinds of weather. You will feel confident that your gauge will continue to measure from season to season and year to year.
The clear plastic makes the rain gauge easy to read. It is lightweight and easy to move from one location to the next. It also comes with a sturdy rustproof bracket, so it maintains its looks for years.
Are you a teacher who is interested in supplementing your science course and teaching with hands on activities throughout the year? This is an economically priced tool to add to your bag of tricks to keep students engaged and excited about learning. Encourage them to keep a journal, so they can monitor the local precipitation throughout the school year.
This instrument measures so extremely accurate that it can be used for official rainfall measurements taken at most airports or other reading stations.
The gauge also becomes handy during the winter months to track the local snowfall. All that you do is remove the receiving funnel and measuring tube. In a matter of seconds, you have an instrument that works for snowfall measurement during those big snowfalls. This will help you know if the kids have enough snow to go outside for a sled ride or build a snowman.
