Tipping Bucket Snowfall Adapter

The CS705 is a snowfall adapter for tipping bucket rain gauges. It converts any standard 6" or 8" rain gage to a year-round rain and snow gage. The CS705 consists of an antifreeze reservoir, over-flow tube, and catch tube. Snow captured in the catch tube dissolves into the antifreeze. The melted snow raises the level of the antifreeze and water solution. The mixture flows through the over-flow tube into the tipping bucket where it is measured by the tipping bucket mechanism.


  • Attaches to TE525 or TE525WS rain gauges
  • Catches snowfall in funnel extension; snowfall melts in antifreeze, then moves through siphon tube to tipping bucket mechanism
  • Not suitable for real-time precipitation measurements
  • Adapter ships with the funnel and mounting bracket kit

  • Height: 66.0 cm
  • Orifice diameter: 8" (20.3 cm)
