With the recent dry weather it's important to save water, this is a great price for a large good quality water butt which also comes with a rain diverter and tap. With prices around £90 elsewhere, £49.99 plus £5 delivery is a good deal.

Yes I don't get it either, I already have 2 of these and they're much better quality than your ordinary supermarket sold water butts.

I like big butts..............

If you've voted cold please explain as this is a good price especially for the size and tap/diverted included

The cold voters will be the long term benefit scroungers who don't pay for their water

350 litres costs just over £1 from a tap if you're on a water meter, so using this will save you money as well as giving your plants rainwater which they prefer to tap water.

Out of interest with the tap being so much higher than the bottom can you only get the water out with a pump?

Costs me quite a bit more, but most people won't be on meters and since you wouldn't use a hosepipe with a water butt, you don't really have to worry about that either, you're using a tap either way. I asked to be put on a water meter which has resulted in my monthly water bill dropping from £150 to £25.

Personally I think this is way too expensive, it might be better quality, but what does that quality give you, my water butts are 10+ years old, were cheap and still hold water fine. Though because I am on a meter and grow a lot of fruit and vegetables I've linked 2 water butts to 8 mango chutney barrels, which means I've got literally 1000s of litres available in a self balancing network, with multiple tap points, the mango chutney barrels in total, cost less than this one butt - though the blue colour might put some off ;-)

As for the dry summer, I've got my system full of water, and that's despite moving the barrels and needing to empty them in the process, around 4 weeks ago.

Are the tap holes in the barrel threaded, or smooth bore? Would love to know.
