The stake is still 1/4" powder coated steel, 24" tall to sit proudly in your flower garden, perennial bed, vegetable patch or landscape border. The rain measurement tube is still indestructible polycarbonate. World's Coolest Rain Gauge just traded the copper flute for custom-molded resin. Still durable, still cool, still made in the USA. What's not to love?
This garden rain gauge should be brought in during the coldest winter months but won't explode in the first hard freeze like a glass rain gauge might.
