I can’t recommend this highly enough. After looking at many other water butt options, I purchased a 3 tier ex display model and there is hardly a mark on it. I am a 60 year old lady and I managed to put it all together myself using the clear and easy instructions. It is now full and not a sign of a drip anywhere.
I have planted up the 4 boxes that came with it and purchased another 5 to get the all round effect and it looks so much nicer than a plain barrel tucked in the corner.
I love the easy to use pipes for filling my watering can and the overflow drainage system is just so neat. Also really good that you can buy individual parts, should something goo wrong. This will keep the item in use, rather than have to dispose of the entire unit and have to get another one. Sustainability hurrah!
If I had to be critical, I couldn’t but would suggest perhaps making the top planting tray a little deeper or sit a little higher, as the side plants I have are over shading the lettuce on top…and more importantly, unless you want 4 legged furry friends living in the base, buy yourself a Scupper bung to block the hole not used for overflow. I got one for 63p.
I would give 12 out 10 if I could, great sustainable item, excellent service and made in UK!
Cheaper than a brand new one but packed and looks just like a new one, this is a great water butt with nice flower baskets to disguise it. Fast delivery, too.
