Easy to read the water levels
Works well and easy to read the water levels. Ok to leave out in all seasons and a nice sturdy plastic. As a keen amateur weather watcher I find this very useful and have bought other versions over the years but this is definitely the best so far.
Easily located and readable rain gauge.
A reliable low cost rain gauge. It replaces another which developed a crack within the plastic cone. I'm not convinced it measures totally accurately. I have kept the cracked one, which I sealed with glue and tape and compare totals. This Tildenet gauge seems to undermeasure the rainfall total compared with the previous gauge. It would require a third gauge to prove which one was the accurate gauge. As an easily readable rain gauge it doesn't disappoint.
Place it away from the "rain shadow" of any building.
It's accurate and easy to use - The Only problem = Mother Nature, it's hardly rained since I bought it. But it does prove that fine rain that dampens everywhere doesn't provide much rainwater (less than 1mm, so still need to water the plants). When it did rain properly it registered on different days 2mm to 14mm which sounds accurate to the rainfall those days (will obviously be more in winter).

Accurate, strong.
Easy to use. Appears to be well constructed and durable. Has survived temperatures of -12°c over the past week.
large capacity and easy to read
Fitted mine on an old fluorescent bulb planted in a bush to keep it straight. Large capacity, so copes with a very heavy shower. Large markings easy to read, and the rim adding ring is a nice feature - simple, but effective!
Very robust.
This is great. It is very well made and robust. It is best positioned out in the open so I have attached the fitting onto an old broom handle which is fixed to a fencepost and it is perfect. The gauge just slots in and is easy to check, empty and clean. The rainfall amounts recently have been staggering but this is large enough to cope.

It does a great job.
Find somewhere flat where you can mount the outside rain gauge. I ended up using a couple of G Clamps to fix to an outside table, having mounted the gauge on a flat piece of wood. This is a temporary soln but it worked fine. The internal display is a bit fiddly to use and see history readings or between the different periods it measures rain over.....However its all there. A link to upload to a tablet etc would be helpful too!
Tricky for an old man to set up but accurate
It took a while to figure out that pressing the "Rain" button on the back cycles through 24 hours, day, etc. But I was probably just being stupid. However, what really was illogical was the need to press the - (minus) button to reset a particular parameter. Mounting the receiver was initially a challenge as it blew over. Now it is in a bucket held weighted down with bricks. Once this 82 year old had understood all this, the accuracy impressed. It agrees perfectly with an old fashioned conical rain gauge. And now I don't need to go outside to see how much rain there has been.
So far, so good.
Whilst the set-up and understanding of the features takes a little time, it is none the less a very good piece of kit. According to several very kind and courteous responses from other buyers, I learnt that the unit is frost resistant and able to cope with snow, so the transmitter can be left outside year round. Very impressed all round and so far, so good.
