The sensor unit looks the same as my Watson and they have been working, with occasional clean/spray lube, for three years. If you buy mount the rain gauge on something solid as the wind can cause false rain measurements.

I did buy it. I like it so far, seems good for a beginner one :) cant stop watching the readings that come up lol

Your one is far more sophisticated than mine and more expensive too. I got mine from Argos for £5.99 :oops:  and it has been showing showers for the past three days. I haven't had a drop. :angry: :angry: :angry:

How its looking so far. I know its not showing 100% correct values right now but its only been up for a couple of hours so it should settle down soon :)

My first one came from ebay, just had a temperature sensor you put outside and a little screen showing the temp and what the pressure was.I always wanted one that did more so when this came up on offer i thought i might as well try it out :)

oh it is addictive but great that you are getting involved with readings. Mine started over 60 years ago and I still do it!
