A water butt like this Roto 240L Wood Effect Water Barrel is beautifully made to blend in with the natural surroundings of your garden.

These barrels are roto-moulded from a highly durable material which is UV and impact resistant, so the barrel keeps its look and shape over the years.
Collecting free rainwater allows you to reduce your water bill and provides water which is free from chlorine - a chemical added to drinking water that inhibits plant growth. Another benefit of storing rainwater outside is the natural temperature of the water, which will not shock your plants like cold water from a tap can do. The 240L is the perfect size for a small courtyard, garden or balcony.
The 240L includes a tap for ease of use. You will need to buy a downpipe filter which provides an entry point for the water from your downpipe to the rain barrel. The filter will stop the unwanted leaves and dirt entering the rain barrel helping to stop clogging and contamination of the water.
Once the rain barrel is full, the downpipe filter will redirect the excess water back down the drainpipe. At the bottom of the rain barrel, you are provided with a tap which allows to you fill your watering can.
