Orders for water butts have suddenly increased since the hose pipe ban was announced in certain parts of the country. It's been one scorching summer, and huge swathes of England are looking like a Mediterranean country, with parched grass, and golden fields of wheat.
The 200 litre double kit is the bestseller.
Unfortunately, the 227 litre which is also popular, became unavailable on the day of the hosepipe ban was announced, as the manufacturer's machine mould for this size broke down. They work none stop so it was probably exhausted! With the environment a big concern, it's worth mentioning that the water butts are made from recycled plastic from kerbside household plastic, and if they ever need replacing, the barrels can also be recycled, so it's keeping plastic away from landfill.
