Polytank Decorative Water Butt Dark Oak Effect 220Ltr
Very decorative and quality
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.

Looks great except for lid
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.

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.

attractive if space is tight
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.
