Over the last few days we have had record rainfalls ... all good except my rain gauge was reading .2mm every hour or so even though the rain was falling at over 10mm per hour.
As I couldn't get up onto the roof to see what was happening I tried resetting the consol without luck, so I had to wait till the rain stopped. While i waited I looked through these forums looking for clues - I thought the ISS either needed resetting, the tippers were obstructed somehow, or the ISS was faulty and needed replacing .... I also wondered if the hole in the rain collector had been blocked somehow but doubted that could happen..
Well today the rain stopped so I got onto the roof ... the hole in the collector was blocked and the collector was almost full to the top with water, just like a bucket ... I would never have thought this hole could be blocked ... it had some sort of black tar like goo in it that was so thick that it was letting a very small amount through every hour ... probably bird droppings I guess as I live in a country town ...
Anyone else had their collector hole block before?
