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

We work alongside the National Flood Forum as well as several water authorities to install water butts in schools.

Water butts in schools are great to get children playing and learning about saving rainwater

The kids at Lady Elizabeth Hastings school in Thorp Arch near Wetherby have a great new activity garden built by a team of willing Parents. They have no water supply down there so they’ve built a Playhouse to collect rainwater in their Rainwater Terraces. They can’t wait to get planting!
