Frequently Asked Questions

What size water butt do I have to have?

Well it is down to personal choice. Obviously the bigger the garden to be watered the larger the water butt litres you will require. For a small average size garden a 500 litre - 1050 litres is ideal. For a larger garden you may require a lot more depending what you want to use the water for e.g. water features or rainwater harvesting.

How will it help me?
A water butt will save you money it is true. When there is drought, hosepipe bands and dry weather periods it can become extremely difficult and expensive to keep your garden, vegetables and plants alive. Having a water butt and saving your own rainwater is not only free, but rainwater is better for your garden than tap water because it don't contain any of the filtration chemicals that drinking water has.

Whats the most popular Size?
We have quite a few popular sellers, mainly ranging between the 500 litres, 800 litres, 1050 litres & 1275 ltrs

How do I know what size rainwater harvesting tank to buy?
Well it really depends on what you want to use the water for and the size house and grounds that you have. A standard typical three bedroom house that has a 25 foot garden would normally need a 2800 Litre water tank.
