Get a small stainless steel strainer to replace the one that came with your
rain collector. Wal-Mart has a set of three sizes that will fit. I used
the smallest. It works great, and has not required maintenance in two

FWIW, I have a Davis Vantage Pro II, wireless. It's been running about
6 years now and I would not do anything different. I did have to
change the battery for the first time in the external unit (Davis says 2
years is more normal!)
The only recurring issue I have is debris collecting and blocking the rain
From what I have read, the Davis units last longer than most.
