The 12" dual-scale rain gauge measures up to 7-1/2" (190 mm) of rainfall in 1/16" and 0.1 mm graduations. The sturdy metal mounting post can be disassembled into three pieces for easy storage.

      We like it and will use it but it would be nice if there was an alternate
      mounting included.

      Wasted my money

            Comments about Post-mounted 7-1/2''-capacity Rain Gauge and Thermometer:

            The liquid in the thermometer was separated when my order arrived so it was registering 55 degrees all the time. I tried every method I could find on the internet to reconnect the liquid in the tube... tapping it , swinging it, etc. As a last resort I tried heating it in water but that broke the bulb. I decided to trash the thermometer and put the pole in the ground so I could at least use the rain gauge but the end of one of the poles was dented so the pieces wouldn't fit together. I had to hacksaw off the damaged section to get the segments of the pole to fit together. Now I have a short rain gauge and no thermometer. I should have just sent the item back for a refund but I didn't want to spend the $11.00 for shipping.

            Comments about Post-mounted 7-1/2''-capacity Rain Gauge and Thermometer:

            Convenient rain & temperature measure in one station, However, needs to be in open area for accurate rain measure, but in shade for accurate temperature measure. Previously I had a similar unit which had a one piece plastic pole. This unit has a 3 section metal pole. The sections do not fit tightly & the pole wobbles slightly. I'm also concerned about rust since the unit is planted in soil.

            Rain Gauge Good, Thermometer not so much

                  Comments about Post-mounted 7-1/2''-capacity Rain Gauge and Thermometer:

                  The rain gauge appears to be accurate but the thermometer registers much higher than the air temperature because the unit needs to be in the open for the rain gauge to function which puts the thermometer in direct sunlight. Since I really just wanted the rain gauge though I am happy with the unit overall.
