The bucket geometry and material are specially selected for maximum water release, thereby reducing contamination and errors. Catchment area of 200 cm2 and measurement resolution of 0.1 mm meet the recommendations of the WMO. Leveling screws and bullseye level are built-in for easy and precise adjustment in the field. Measured precipitation is discharged through a collection tube for verification of total rainfall.

The 52203 is an unheated version available for use in moderate climates. To discourage birds from perching on the funnel rim, accessory bird wire assembly may be attached to the gauge.
