A water butt: environmentally-friendly and durable

A water butt or water barrel is perfect if you want to collect rainwater. The typical household uses 2,200 litres of drinking water every year just to keep its lawns and plants looking good. In the future, rain showers will become less frequent but more severe as a result of climate change. Be prepared during periods of drought. Store your own supply of rainwater in a plastic water butt.


Why do you need a water butt?

Without an own supply of rainwater, drinking water is commonly used for watering the lawn and plants. Drinking water is also used for washing cars or motorcycles, amongst other things. Using drinking water for the garden and car when rainwater is free is a waste of a natural resource. Furthermore, rainwater is much better for both plants and vehicles. Rainwater contains much less lime and is therefore less acidic. Harmful bacteria cannot survive in it. Plants get healthy doses of water, resulting in much better growth. We advise you to let your water butt run empty in the winter as a full barrel can freeze and crack at low temperatures.

The Slimline (also called the Rainsaver or balcony barrel) has an unbeatable price/quality ratio, a capacity of 100 litres, and a choice of two colours - anthracite or green. It is possible to connect a garden hose to the tap using a Gardena coupling.

We also sell the beautiful wood-effect Roto model with a 120 litre capacity. This water butt looks like a wooden barrel, but with all the advantages of plastic. Available in brown and anthracite.


Can I connect a water butt to a round downpipe?

You can connect them with a rain diverter or downspout diverter. Rainwater flows through the rain diverter towards the barrel. As soon as the plastic rain barrel fills to the maximum water level, any excess rainwater simply flows back into the round downpipe. This way, you will always have a full barrel and avoid green algae deposits on your patio or driveway. Another possibility is the water butt overflow kit. This allows you to drain excess rainwater into a ditch or pond, for example. Would you like to connect several barrels to each other? Then the water butt linking kit is the solution!
