Harcostar magnum barrel water butt
At the top of the water butt, about 5cm (2in) at the back, there is a hole which is used for attaching accessories, such as the rain trap, to the butt.
There is no stand available for this particular model, but it does have two tap holes, one at the base and one 400mm above. However it can be placed on a platform to make filling watering cans much easier. All holes come with plugs so will not leak if not is use.
This water butt comes with a 5-year manufacturer's warranty.

Q:I can't see from the picture if this has a hole in the lid. A downpipe from my allotment shed roof channels rainwater directly into a water butt (leaky). I want to get a new water butt, but I don't particularly want to buy a fancy linking kit just for the allotment as it doesn't matter if the water butt overflows every so often. Any advice?Asked on 2/1/2014 by Saptarishi from Northfields
No there isn't a hole in the lid, so you would need a Harcostar universal rain trap to link the downpipe to the water butt. I have attached a link to the raintrap.
