Contains everything you need to get going.
The water butt is made from recycled plastic and is packaged in simple plastic sheeting.
So not too much wastage there.
The connector pipe and tap are included and fairly easy to apply if you just follow the instructions carefully.
The lid is a firm fit and quite difficult to get off…
..(which from past experiences, is definitely a good thing!)
Its a slimline, tall water butt with 100L capacity – so perfect for light garden watering.
The 3 part stand is also a particularly study and will not buckle under the weight as it is strengthened with angled stiffeners.
The tap is also hosepipe connector compatible.
If you’re looking for a butt with a large water capacity, this one has it at 227L.
Complete with a very sturdy stand, tap and downpipe filler.
The classic three part stand locks together making it stronger than a one piece stand.
The lid is also a little more advanced with a lockable lid.
There is a 210L water butt which is very similar and about £5 cheaper, but I included the Harcostar because the overall quality, feel and look is better.
An excellent quality all round water butt.
With a huge 200L capacity it will certainly save on your water bills.
As with the others, everything you need to set it up is included.
Just take you time and get the feeder hose at the right height on the drain pipe to ensure maximum water collection.
Its made of recycled plastic which is good to hear.
The lid is also child safe – even better!!
The unique shape is slightly wider at the top than the bottom for better space saving.
The widest point at the top is about 70cm diameter.
A huge 350L water butt that is very sturdy and well made.
There are two tap ports.
One is 30cm from ground level and there is a second tap port right at the bottom – in case you choose to raise the water butt onto a stand.
Some people make a stand from slabs, or something else incredibly strong.
(You don’t have to use a plastic one.)
The higher tap means you don have to raise it off the ground if you don’t want to.
Also, because the width at the top is quite large, (78cm x 78cm circle) it is possible to dip the whole watering can into the butt for quicker filling.
(Perfect for the impatient gardener.)
You also get the rain diverter kit and one tap included.
An extremely unique bee hive shaped terracotta effect water butt.
The texture and look of the butt is extremely convincing until you see the black lid.
But this water butt looks so unique I think we can forgive it for that.
It is made from 100% recycled plastic.
There is no stand included, but it could look great of a raised platform of bricks.
The water butt can be used on any stand capable of holding the 150L weight, or you own custom built stand.
The tap is supplied and is good quality.
However you will need to purchase the water butt filler down pipe attachment separately. (These are very cheap to purchase.)
This makes the EvertSankey a great water butt to integrate into an garden to start saving money on water bills!
It also acts as a decorative feature of the garden.
It blends in like a terracotta pot, instead of standing out like a big green monster.
Another great looking water butt!
It’s so nice water butts that have been designed to compliment and become a feature of the garden.
This is much preferred to a green plastic tank!
As they are such a key part of most peoples gardens, the design features really make a difference.
And the good news is that they don’t cost much more at all!
A particularly beautiful looking water butt that couples as a garden ornament.
Based on a vintage oak ale barrel, this plastic moulded and very well painted water butt really is convincing.
Its extremely tough and long lasting with double the capacity of the other barrel design butt.
Complete with a vintage looking brass tap, which is subtly suitable for regular hose pipe fittings.
This barrel butt can be placed on the floor and used without a stand (the tap height is still suitable for a watering can).
Or you can sit in on a stand, making the tap sit at a much more comfortable height.
(No need to drill holes in the side of the plastic barrel.)
One negative about this water butt is that the water inside that sits below the level of the tap is impossible to use.
There is no way to full empty it without tipping it upside down or adding a tap hole at the bottom and the lid is not removable.
One final positive – the barrel butt has a unique dip in the lid area.
It is deep enough to plant a few small plants to further decorate the water butt.
It would look great with ivy or another draping plant that could hang down in front of the barrel butt to make it blend into your garden even more.
We love the brass tap that is supplied.
(Much more fancy than a standard black one which is normal supplied.)
