I know most people who don't live in Wakefield will vote this cold straight away (thanks for that), but if I can help a few people out then it is worth posting....

Not every council offers the same deal, but my local council (Wakefield) offer 190 litre water butts for £26.15 which seems a good deal to me.

It is worth checking you local council website to see what deals they offer

Looking online the cheapest deals seem to be around £20 for a 100 litre butt, so an extra £6.15 for the 190 litre version seems worth it, as the alternative is to purchase 2 smaller ones and link them together, but that would cost you much more.

With all the rain we have had recently, it is a good time to get one installed and stock up on supplies!

Subsidised bathing for the north? Things really have gone South.
It'll be my money the leader of the local council stole from me that's paying for them! http://www.wdh.me.uk

Assuming you are fixing it to a down pipe (!) then water these fill up pretty quicly - given that the surface area of a rood that is likely to be at least 50x the cross-section area of one of these then an inch of rain is going to fill it!

Thanks. Missed that one. Ordered.
