Good price, i recently paid £19.99 for the same thing at Amazon. Remember to put some PTFE tape on the thread before fitting the tap or it will drip. Heat added.

If this is similar to the one from argos ( fitted one for neighbour last year) then the connector can take both square and round pipes.

Has ordered a tesco butt will confirm if its round pipes only or square too tomorrow

Could you connect this to a power hose?

This site has more Butts than Copacabana Beach!

Hahaha! I use it to keep them wet!

Some pressure washers will work e.g. my Karcher, my older washer (K.E.W.) won't.

Good idea! But it's slow.

If the water butt is to be used with a pressure washer, would 100litres be enough to wash 1/2 cars?

Also will this work with a square shaped gutter pipe, as the end to this seems hexagonal shaped?

Yeah it's fine with 1/2 cars, not tried it with a full one though.

Lols - that is funny

On a serious note - does the fitting seem good for a square shaped downpipe?

I've got this, it does fit a square downpipe, you just have to cut a little bit to make the circle, square.
the instructions aren't bad and tells you how to do it.

Thanks. Ordered.

Good ideas are these water butts. It
seems so daft to use mains water
for watering plants.
Hot and thanks for the post.

Ordered thanks

I love a good mosquito farm!!

I like big butts and I cannot lie .....

Just collected from tesco, can confirm as per mark5harwich says it does fit both round and square down pipes. With the square pipes you need to cut along a scribed out square outline on the cover plate.

Freaky - this product is now £10, but still out of stock

Its back in stock for £10.
