This Ecosure 800 pillar water butt is the perfect space-saving solution for high capacity rainwater storage. Its small footprint, minimalist styling and versatility make it a favourite for the keen gardener who understands the benefits of naturally soft rainwater and is not prepared to compromise on quality. Rotationally moulded from virgin tank-grade MDPE with the latest UV stabilisation package, it is strong, durable and guaranteed frost-proof. It comes with three brass outlets moulded into the tank. Each one is sealed, so if you don't want to use them, they will not leak. You can drill the ones you want to use, or you can ask us to drill them for you. The raised outlet at the front of the tank is suitable for a bib tap and just the right height for a watering can. The lower outlets (one on each side) allow you to drain the butt completely. Just attach a shut-off valve with snap on hose connector. Alternatively, use irrigation hose to water your garden at the turn of the lever.
This water butt will last for many years. Just make sure that it is installed on a flat, level base that will provide support throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions. Leave a gap of about 50mm all around the tank to allow for the natural expansion of the tank when full of water. The rainwater diverter can located wherever it is required without affecting the tank's structural integrity, but should be fitted about 50mm from the top of the butt. Just follow the instructions that come with the diverter. Ensure that the pipe running from the downpipe to the water butt is horizontal, so that it acts as an overflow when the tank is full.
