"The butts are easy to join together by standing them compactly side-by-side and placing a hose pipe through the touching overflow hole. To ensure that the pipes siphon the water from one but in to the next, wait another day until the first butt is full, cut a piece of hose to the length that will dangle from the bottom of the 1st butt in to the 2nd. Find something that will cork one end of the pipe, fill the pipe with water from the full butt, plug it, push it through to the next butt, pull the plug out ensuring the pipe is as far down inside the butt as possible. You will find the water runs from the 1st butt in to the 2nd. One 2 butts are full, you can do it with a 3rd if you have one."

"Excellent value for money, which doesn't mean cheap. Looks good and doesn't dominate the patio area.; Easy to construct and install and easy to use."

"It is difficult to get excited by a water butt but this one ticks all the boxes. Superb quality and comes complete with everything that you need. I needed something for the front of the house and the usual green ones did not float the wife's boat.
This one really blends in nicely and everybody is happy. As others have pointed out you need to be patient fitting the tap to ensure screwing in straight, but once in - solid firm fit. Looks great and just to confirm my satisfaction with the product I have have ordered a second one for the back garden.

"Very robust and good looking.
Tap was tricky to fit - because the thread in the butt was very poor. Persevere, and make sure it goes in straight.
Diverter was easy to instal, but I advise you may need an extra down pipe clip to ensure the pipe stays straight.

"This looks really great, better than a standard green one. The base is rock solid and way better than the rubish ones you get for the green ones. Tap was a little tricky to attach but got there in the end. Comes with a diverter. its not the cheapest but looks good especially out the front of the house"

Good Looking Butt
8 May 2012
By
, New Haw, Surrey
"This is a far better looking butt for putting somewhere where it is prominent like a patio. It blends in has a very small footprint and certainly does not stick out like a sore thumb far better looking than the standard green butts. Not the cheapest butt on the market but we are very pleased with it"

Looks great except for lid
27 May 2014
By
, Reading
"Certainly one of the best water butts I have and it blends in much better than the green ones. The base is well designed with dovetail keys locking the halves together, and the butt locks into the base making the whole structure firm. However the lid is only pegged down and is flimsy, but it will form a useful bird bath as it is dished."

attractive if space is tight
11 Jun 2013
By
, Mid Northumberland
"quite solid base. Quite attractive water butt, though not as woody as it looks in the photo.
We turned the lid over to avoid a pool of water that might have attracted pond life, though drilling a couple of holes would have achieved the same result without adding to the height.
I might have given 5 stars, but it is quite expensive for what it is.

Nice Butt
31 May 2013
By
, Yorkshire
"Only butt I have seen with a wrinkly wood effect, only up to now seen them that are rounded and usually green. This one is brown which makes it inconspicuous. Haven't had it long so don't know how good it's capacity is but I only intend it for watering the garden so it may only be seen in the summer months. None of the neighbours have commented on the butt so it must be well hidden or acceptable to be on view."

Neat & Tidy Water Butt - But !
23 Sep 2012
By
, West Sussex
"For a water butt this design is the most appealing in colour and design compared ith the standard tub type water butts.
One negative, as commented on by another reviewer is that the lid is recessed for strength, which collects water and attracts mossies, etc. The way round this design fault is to turn it upside down. One does this by removing the plastic studs (easily done since the are slightly springy) and then inserting them from the other side of the lid. This way the "recess" sits above the line of the butt but still clips into the top of the butt, and does not collect water to the same extent as the original arrangement.

I bought some more!
3 Sep 2012
By
, East Sussex
"Last year I bought 2 x 220 ltr and 2x 110 ltr Butts which proved easy to fit and set up, very reliable, with NO leakage.
Based on this and the fact that here in the south east we were given a water ban very early this Spring I tried to order more. Both sizes were unavailable initially but once back in stock I ordered 3 more.
The finish, fit and ease to assemble were not as good as last year, it was necessary to get some sealant to make the fittings watertight and the stands did not fit together so neatly as those purchased previously.
Having written all that, I would most certainly buy more if needed as there is nothing as good on the market, I just feel that the prices have increased and the quality, sadly, reduced.

220 Ltr Water Butt
11 Jun 2012
By
, Exning
"A very good product for the money, the butt also includes a rain diverter, which wasn't mentioned but as this came in black and I needed white I had to buy separately. May be better to reduce the price further and leave the diverter to be bought separately."

"Excellent water butt, very strong, looks great!Really easy to assemble.
But lid needs re-design as it is recessed and fills with rain water?
