Only works when it want to?

Cons

  • Quit working

    Comments about Acu-Rite Wireless Rain Gauge:

    This being my third one, I will not buy another one. The collector will work one times and then quit? Got this because I can't go out and read it all the time but it is worthless because it doesn't work.

          Comments about Acu-Rite Wireless Rain Gauge:

          It measures inches of rain when none has fallen. It measured 0.1" of rain when we had a deluge of over an inch. Apparently it is affected by wind which must simulate the action of water by moving the collector around. Complete waste of money.

          Called customer service, with the no collector connection problem, and they solved it in less than 5 minutes with 2 pieces of aluminum foil on the + ends of the collector batteries. It is now working like a charm. I'm elated!

          The main unit would not communicate the collector no matter what I tried!

          Comments about Acu-Rite Wireless Rain Gauge:

          I purchased this unit to replace a 30 year old N.O.A.H. cylinder rain gage thinking that it'd be nice to have the info at hand when it rains instead of going outside to read the old gage. This unit was compact with a large separate display, and seemed ideal, until it rained.

          Setting the reciever next to the cylinder gage to test accuracy, I found the difference was huge- we had a slight rainfall 0f .32" in one day as measured by the old gage, and according to the newfangled digital unit, we had .21"... hmmm.

          So I separated the units by a few feet, and the next day we had .16" on the cylinder and .11" on the digital unit.

          This unit is goin' back- it's cute but I didn't get it for it's looks.
