Well done Sherlock, but gravity is not enough to power a sprinkler


How about you read the whole comment?

Gravity words grand for my 1/4 acre allotment. Just depends on how much higher the outlet of the butt is. Mine, is six foot in the air, with the top of the water level being a further five foot above. That's a lot of water pressure.

The roof water runs into feeder butts, that pump water up to the water head butt, via a solar panel. So my water level doesn't even fall much, as the power to the lower pumps switches on/off when the water level in the upper butt falls more than five inches.

I'm sure anyone with basic general science can see that pressure working just grand, then the head is moved around to spray the next part.

Length of hose make very little difference, just keep it straight, no kinks, and with as few uphill parts as possible. I don't even use a pump ... which I actually did suggest in my first post, you just forgot to read.

Today's program was brought to you by the round window. Go try and be sarky elsewhere.

You wash the car in rain water?


It's even easier if you wait for it to rain then run outside and wash it.

Not bad. But to be fair, people give these away for free on the facebook Market place. Unless you want a brand new 1 that is.
My bathroom and toilet is separate and I don't have a sink in my toilet, can this be useful for me

Where I didn't see any
Nice butt 🍑🍑
Would it fit in the back of my Honda?
do you need to buy the linking hose too?

Only if you want to link the Butt to another Butt. Otherwise no.
okay, thank you
I bet Nicky has one?

I have this does me great for my greenhouse
100L is pretty small, but worth having if you don't have one yet.
I've got 3 x 100L and 2x 200L.
Looking for more large ones, as when you are watering the garden with a sprinkler, 100L doesn't go very far.
Fine for washing the car though
Got this exact one the other month for my little front garden so I don't need to trail the hose around (and also for enviromental reasons). Pretty easy to install, you need a 25mm drill bit iirc to drill the water butt for the pipe, I had one either 1mm smaller and filed it a little. Also the legs are a bit faffy but once you have it in place and some water in it is sturdy and secure.

Wow, you get enough pressure to make a sprinkler work?

It's called gravity, just lift them higher. Or add a fish tank pump.

It is if you have enough of it. 10 meters or so should do. Obvs no one has this, for the rest of us there's a water butt pump.

You can use water butts as a water feed for some power washers for car washing, I presumed this is what Joe was talking about. What were you guys thinking, maybe he picks the water butt up and pours it over his car?
This is very small, maybe ok for catching the water from a shed. Any decent catchment area will easily fill 200+ litres in a spring shower.

The Worx Hydroshot gets good user reviews. Battery powered and works from any water source so no need to be at home to use it. Currently working on the wife explaining what it can do

Anyone know.....if you can get one of these attached to a old cast iron downpipe easily and also, dumb question of the thread once one is full does the overspill just go the downpipe as Normal? Thankyou gardening/DIY boffins XX

I was wondering myself, would be handy if they did a pump attachment similar to the small pump and spray jobs for the garden. I have probably just invented something only I would use but I like the sound of it

Bigger the butt, and higher up it is, the better.

Doesn't necessarily need to be up off the ground, if you have uneven land. Just site the butt at the highest part.

I've five feeder butts, that feed one very large 1000 liter butt that once transported olive oil. And I need more/bigger ones More power!

My main butt almost emptied a few weeks ago, due to lack of rain. A call combination of lack of rain filling the feeder butts, and a greater demand on water usage, does that. Hence why my revised plan calls for more head storage.

I still think my hand pump to add pressure is a winner as it can be difficult to fix these things high enough for any real pressure, will get back to you when I have made one Kudos by the way for putting in the obvious effort that you have to use rain water
I have several of these and they're always full... apart from this year where we've had no rain, they're empty now :/
