I did the 8 oz of water in a paper cup test. the tipping bucket only tipped twice then stopped working. cl;oser inspection revealed a wad of glue on the bottom of the bucket assembly. this apparently prevented the bucket from tipping. I cleaned off the glue and re-did the test. It measured 1.55" and was supposed to measure 1.68" first rainfall measured .30" while a 4" plastic gauge next to it measured .34" I adjusted the gauge +10%.
I compared this units output over several days and it's about 20% low. I know there is a procedure to calibrate it but seems like it should have been closer from the factory.
I've had it for about a month now and it's beside a manual rain gauge and they both read exactly the same so it's accurate according to our other rain gauge. My house is 5 miles from the farm so on the weekend I don't have to drive out to see how much it rained so very convenient for me. Great product and great price.
Great price for this product that has been flawless. It is pretty accurate and is very close with what it says on tv. Highly recommend it to anyone.
