This modern rain gauge by Danish brand Eva Solo can easily be placed in the ground with the stainless steel pin provided.
The amount of rainfall is indicated in both inches and millimetres.
The rain gauge is fully frost-proof thanks to the frost-free glass. The reservoir must, however, be emptied at regular intervals, especially in winter. When the water in the rain gauge freezes and expands, there is a chance the glass may burst.
The rain gauge is dishwater proof, so maintenance does not take much time.
