Waterbutt and gardening. water storage for garden. storing garden water
  The wallmounted waterbutt combines both a diverter and a reservoir in one unique product. Excess water overflows automatically and safely into the downpipe and on into your drain. When full and containing 22 galls (100ltrs) natural expansion of the reservoir will occur, both the reservoir and fixings have been designed to accomodate this. In winter drain by fitting a length of hose from the tap (left in the open position) directly into your drain. You may add to the charm of your waterbutt by inserting flower pots into the two top holes, ensure that these do not sit below the overflow point. The higher the waterbutt is placed on the wall the greater the 'head' of water pressure, thus enabling direct hosing of your plants. More than one butt can be connected together for increased storage capacity.

Fixing Instructions:

Follow these instructions carefully, all brackets and fixings must be used correctly.

Step 1: Decide Height
Decide the height and position at which you wish to fix the waterbutt, remember to allow enough room for your watering can under the tap. The suggested height is 15" (380mm) at this point mark a level line on the wall A

Step 2: Bottom Pipe Clips
Any bottom pipe clip must be 5" (100mm) below the waterbutt, if necessary reposition B

Step 3: Outlet Section Cuts
Measure 42 1/2" (1075mm) up from height line A and cut horizontally through the pipe. Now mark 5 1/2" (140mm) above this cut and once again cut and remove this section C

Step 4: Top Pipe Clips
Ensure that any top clip is positoned at a minimum of 9 1/2" (240mm) above the top of reservoir D for ease of fitting.

Step 5: Fixing Wall Bracket
Taking the metal wall bracket E slide down the pipe via the cut section to align the protruding arms with height line A check that the bracket is dead centre of the pipe and that it is level (Use a spirit level). Mark the holes and drill two 10mm holes and using the two short plugs and screws, fix to the wall.

Step 6: Fitting the Water Butt
Offer up the water butt to the top down pipe sliding it inside the centre hole of the butt until it will go no further. With the butt against the wall, lower it onto the bottom pipe section. Now with butt seated level and evenly on the brackets, mark the position dead centre of the two top holes and REMOVE THE WATERBUTT* to allow for drilling. Drill two 3 1/2 (90mm) deep holes

*failure to do this may result in damage to the top area of the reservoir when using the drill

Step 7: Fixing the Waterbutt
Fit the bung to the side you DO NOT want the tap, in case of limited access when in position.

Now repeat step 6. Once again with the butt in place, push the long plugs through the top holes of the butt and fix to the wall.

Finally fit the tap and push the top caps into place.
