Hach Rain Gauge

To truly understand the hydraulics of your collection system, including pinpointing I&I trouble areas, accurately monitoring and analyzing the effects of rainfall is imperative. The Rain Gauge Tipping Bucket is a simple yet highly accurate approach to capture rain event data and create a more accurate profile of your system. And when you pair it with a wireless Hach FL900 Series Flow Logger, you won’t even have to go out into the elements to know exactly what’s going on, at every monitoring location. Instead you can simply view your rain data in real-time, right from your desktop. Or laptop. Or tablet. Or phone.

Texas Electronics Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge

The Rain Gauge is a freestanding receptacle for measuring precipitation. Through an opening at the top of the device, rain is collected and then funneled to a mechanical device, called a tipping bucket. As water is collected, the tipping bucket fills to the point that it tips over, causing a momentary closure of a switch to incrementally measure rainfall accumulation. This action empties the bucket in preparation for additional measurement. Water discharged by the tipping bucket passes out of the rain gauge with no need for emptying.
