Water butt news - From dry to soaking

The last blog post was about how reservoirs were low and rainfall was low in May. Well, this is Britain afterall, so it's no surprise to say its been torrential rain the last few days in June. This of course means anyone with a water butt, will have plenty saved in their barrels, from the downpours. I had to check to see when the heatwave began last year, and it was later than I thought. According to the wiki page about the 2018 heatwave, it began on the 22nd June. So, all is not lost yet for a hot, sunny summer, but I wouldn't bet on it, could just as easily be a soggy mess, like previous years. One things for certain though, having a water butt installed will ensure you have some free rainwater to use if there is dry periods, and the clever thing with the water butts is that with the diverter kits they don't overflow. Once the water butts are full the water then just continues down the drainpipe into the drain.
