Accurate rainfall recording using a tipping bucket rain gauge relies on the rain gauge installed so the rim is absolutely horizontal and extremely stable. The best solution is to use a mounting post designed specifically to acheive both of these requirements. Mounting your rain gauge on a post also reduces the dust collected, minimises fauna and fauna ingress and increases the interval required between cleaning.
It comes with a Marine Grade Stainless Steel mounting plate to provide very fine levelling adjustment and absolute rigidity to the gauge once installed. The post is designed to concrete the bottom 400mm in ground, placing the rim of the gauge at around 950mm above ground level to meet BoM Guidelines.
We stock options to place the Rim of the Rain Gauge at 5oomm above ground, and Stainless Steel Post options too.
