Water Butts

Postby tykl » Tue Oct 12, 2010 3:15 pm

Just wondered if anyone had ever had a negative outcome to the garden after installing a water butt. For years the garden has been used to water from the down pipe going to the soakaway and all the garden benefitting evenly and then it is being captured in the water butt as encouraged by the 'green party' where it is only being used for specific areas.

In summer our water butts emptied. We just don't have room for enough water butts, I can't see a negative side to them, unless you took issue to cleaning the filter. An irrigation system runs from our water butts and can evenly water our small garden if needs be. We don't have grass so don't know if there would be a difference if watering large areas.

Everyone should be trying to conserve water. We have about 30 container plants, without water butts our water bill would go up a bit I think.
