What is the proper way to install a Sigma Rain Gauge?
Summary
Installing a Sigma Rain Gauge with an FL900 Logger.
Answer
  1. Select a site.
  2. Make sure to attach the Rain Gauge to a solid, heavy base.  A cement block approximately 12” X 12” X 1” works well.
    • You will need to drill into the base and install 4 pegs that align with the holes on each corner of the Rain Gauge base.
  3. Connect the Rain Gauge to the Logger and program it.   
  4. Check the Level (see picture below).  The bubble must be inside the circle on the Level.
    • Adjust the Leveling Wing Nuts until the bubble is in the middle of the circle.
  5. Verify that the Rain Gauge is functioning correctly.
