Not very. I think metered supplies charge about £2 per cubic metre (1000 litres).

The environmental side isn't the only argument for using them though, plants do better on rain water than tap water.

That's only part of the cost, whatever water you use, you have to pay far more to get rid of it.

Not sure what is meant by "the environmental impact" (apart from plastic being a terrible product for recycling - but something like this should last 20+ years). Down South the companies need your help getting shut of the water especially in winter as this is the reason so many people got flooded this year as the sewers couldn't cope!

In this area (South West Water). It costs £5.25 per 1000L. Thus if you use this butt then it's 52p for each 'load'.

If you are a person who uses tap water for plants and garden you could potentially save it's cost within the year, and certainly could if you filtered it and pumped it to wash car.

Indeed. Unfortunately SWW is the most expensive water authority in the country and so, economically, it makes more sense to use a butt in this area than any other.
We bought another one of these from Tesco (Bedford) for £20 last weekend. They occasionally drop to this price or lower in Wickes but are currently £30!

B&M list the butt without the accessories (stand and drainpipe interceptor) for £14.99: bmstores.co.uk/pro…253
On my last visit to the local B&M store the version on the shelf had all the extra bits an pieces but didn't have a price on it, so you might get lucky there!


Hope that this helps.
I got mine from Aldi for £18.99 a couple of weeks back. Worth a look in your local Aldi to see if they still have them , may even be reduced too.
Water costs me £4.20/cubic metre from Yorkshire Water.

Fair enough, didn't realise the price varied that much across the country.

Even if every household in the country had one it wouldn't really help in terms of easing the pressure on the sewage system in the winter though. In heavy rain our 100l water butt can go from empty to full in a few hours, as most people won't be watering any plants over the winter (and therefore emptying the barrel), it will just sit there full, not collecting any water at all for most of the winter.

Thus my point about using a filtered pump and using to wash car. Which you will do a lot in winter.

If every house had a 100L or more capability it would make a noticeable difference to the water going in to the sewers. Rain clouds usually move about and the downpours are not usually constant across the whole landmass. This effectively load shifts the demand around the sewer system and thus the initial 'blast' of water isn't going to be as bad.

What would also make a massive difference is if people stopped removing green space for parking, but that's not going to happen.

I think it would be pretty slow to fill if you just left the lid off. The idea is to connect it to a downpipe. The kit includes an adapter and it's fairly straightforward to connect. I was surprised how unstable it was on the supplied base so have tied it to the wall with some bungee cords.
