MANUAL SUPPLIED WITH MY 00899 RAIN GUAGE IS WRONG.The manual for MY rain gauge #00899 says that one cup of water is 2.2 inches of rain.  ALSO , MY MANUAL SAYS, CW TO INCREASE .  ONLINE INFO SEEMS TO BE RIGHT!! 1.68" AND CW TO DECREASE!! THIS CAUSED ME TO TRY FOR 4-6 HOURS TO CALIBRATE BEFORE FINDING THE ON LINE MANUAL.

Hi Robert,

We do apologize for any inconvenience. There was a small number of manuals that were sent out with the incorrect calibration information. We have since corrected this, and the proper information can be found in the manual online at http://www.acurite.com/media/manuals/00899-instructions.pdf.
