The Rainwater Terrace water butt & growing system surprises people when they see inside, there is an inbuilt filtration system that catches silt and debris off a roof firstly in the top planter tray and secondly in the top water container this means water collected in the lower water containers is much cleaner which is ideal for car washing. The through flow system not only provides cleaner water butt it acts as an overflow back to the downpipe which ensures the system will never overflow out of the top and the water within the system is kept fresh as the water in the system is constantly refreshed each time new rainfall enters the water butt.

Water butts for schools

Rainwater Terrace water butts are modular rainwater harvesting and storage units, the design enables the self contained units to be stacked vertically up to 3 units high and expanded horizontally to suit the space available. This flexibility makes these water butts a great solution for educational rainwater harvesting accompanied with the Rainwater Terrace's patented throughflow and growing system.134 litre school water butt with green planters
