Installing a water butt to beat the drought

When installing a Rainwater Terrace water butt its good to know each water butt comes with a rainwater diverter which fits (65mm square and 68mm round downpipes) and a water butt stand.

It is essential that you set a Rainwater Terrace water butt up on a hard flat level surface, we recommend a 600mm x 600mm paving slab this is because when full a 200 litre water can weigh around 250kg

Each water butt kit comes with a top planter, side planters and capillary mats which ensure the plants can wick water from the water trays at each level.

With the current warm dry weather in the UK and the threat of hosepipe bans now could be the perfect time to install a water butt ready for the next rainfall. An average UK roof can collect 24000 litres (Quote RHS -Even in dryer parts of the country, the Royal Horticultural Society says 24,000 litres of water could be collected each year from the roof of an average house.)
