Spare Water Butt Tap
Unfortunately it's common for taps to leak or break which makes the water butt unusable. You can simply fit a replacement water butt tap to solve this.
This is a spare plastic tap to fit almost any water butt. Design may vary. 25mm (1") fitting.
What is a Water Butt
A water butt is essentially a container usually made from plastic or wood that is used to store collected rainwater in your garden (normally from the roof of your house, garage or shed). They come in all shapes and sizes, from smaller 100l waterbutts to giant 3000l + water tanks. Water butts are also sometimes known as Water Barrels or Rain Barrels.
A water butt usually needs to be put on a stand so that you can put a watering can under the tap easily, however, it is possible to mount it onto bricks or another raised surface that you may have in your garden. If you are wanting to collect water from a downpipe, you'll also need a rain diverter to connect to your downpipe and divert rainwater into the butt.
Rainwater Harvesting - Saving Water
Rain water butts are not only great for the environment, they save you money too. By using a waterbutt you are saving valuable drinking water. Not only is clean water needed for drinking, it is also limited. Fish, plants and other wildlife rely on the water from lakes, streams and rivers - there is no point using it on your garden when rainwater will do even better! Water is a precious resource that shouldn't be wasted. A full guide on saving water can be found on the Environment Agency website.
