These clever water-saving devices have been winning awards for their sleek and practical design. As it rains the water runs down the drainpipe and is first collected in the lime green jug, which has a 5lt capacity. When the jug is full, the excess water is then directed to the 75lt tank below until that too is full. Once both the jug and the tank are full, the surplus water will simply run off down the pipe. When you want to water the garden you can remove the full jug from the 'holding pouch' and then re-fill it using the tap at the base of the tank.

They are easy to install and can be fitted to drainpipes with a diameter between 68 - 80mm.

Measurements: 44cm length x 48cm width x 119cm height

Comments about Pure raindrop water butt and watering can:

This is an attractive water butt which we've had in place for about a year. It replaced an ordinary water butt which had been in place in a while. On the positive side, it is much prettier than the previous butt and the water jug is a useful feature if it has rained since last using the butt. However, it has such a slow stream of water from the tap (5 minutes to fill that jug) that it isn't practical when there are a large number of pots to water. The water butt also doesn't hold that much water.
