A good use of a little space in our small garden. I was surprised that such a big capacity but would be hiding behind the greenhouse door. it was tricky to cut the hole for the pipe (that leads from the gutterings) to feed rain water in. It is also surprising how much rain water you get in it that since fitting it, we hardly needed to use the hose at all. The water from it has been enough for greenhouse bags and general watering around the garden. we find it a bit tricky to adjust the tap which sometimes leaks and needs a very long arm to get inside the but and adjust it.. Of course you shall need the but to be empty to do this. Also, it is important to keep using the water of it otherwise, little flies and other insects etc. will find thier way in to lay thier eggs in and providing you with plenty of unwanted mini beasts.

The water butt was as I expected (I'd already seen them in stores).
I set it all up to receive water from the shed guttering, cut a hole on the lid, (Its all marked out for this).
It rained during that night but when I looked in the butt it was empty.
I found the tap had not been installed correctly so all the water had run away.
To fix this I had to dismantle everything then get my head and shoulders inside the butt. With help from my wife holding the tap from the outside, I managed to fix it. Then had to re-install by the shed.
It now works fine but if you buy one I advise you check the tap before installing. The holding nut inside was cross-threaded.

Although the water butt appears to be sound-- it has been installed,connected to a down-pipe, and is now full -- the quality and consistency of the material is not very impressive : I found one spot near the top of the butt where the butt wall was thin and almost transparent. I shall monitor its robustness carefully.

Received on time but unfortunately tap had been knocked during transit and leaked.Contacted firm who sent a replacement tap.Obviously a need to protect the tap during transit,or send tap seperately,but this can be hard to fit especially if you're over 70.Luckily had a thin neighbour who could get inside butt.

Order placed 3rd Nov together with base, with guarantee would turn up next day for workman to fit; however only the base turned up, with the butt the following week. Only just got workman back, who says the tap has a washer missing, a clip on the lid was broken off, and there is a big dent in the plastic. Not sure if damage is fault of delivery people, or in original packing. In future will go to shop to buy large items instead of internet. Cannot comment on how well it works, as now i have to get a new tap before it can be connected.
Well have now been to buy a new tap and it is identical to the original one, so a washer was not missing. Tried to connect it myself, so had to crawl right inside, and anyone watching would have thought it was an episode from Faulty Towers. I could not workout how the tap fitted, and looked on the internet, nothing tells you exactly how to fit it, just 'and then fit the tap'. If a practical person like a workman couldn't fix the tap, what chance have i got. Not sure what to do next.
It has now been explained to me that the original tap did not have a phlang/flang, which explains what the tiny bits of plastic were inside the water butt. So now have a new tap, with a phlang/flang, and have fitted it to the butt. Success at last, now all i have to do is get the down pipe in the butt lid. think i will contact the workman again.

This item was delivered very promptly, and will, I'm sure do what's required of it. It's a soft, unassuming shade of green - just about the ideal colour, I'd have thought.

It wasn't well packaged, with the result that there were a couple of shallow dents in the plastic, which could easily be pushed out, and I don't think there's any damage.

More importantly, the tap was damaged in transit, but, before I could begin cursing, I realised that there was a spare tap included. So I presume the suppliers have had this problem before. Shoving one's head and shoulders into the butt to fit the replacement tap is a slightly claustrophobic experience, but it's an easy enough job.

So, overall, this looks like good value for money.

Purchased Sankey 210 Water butt to replace an existing butt that had developed a leak. Cheap at the price, but it is designed to take water in via a down-pipe coming through the lid. Not the best design because the down pipe would have to be adapted to extend further from the wall where down-pipes are normally located, and excess water would flow down the side of the butt when it is full.

There is a water diverter kit on the market that sits in the down-pipe and allows water to return to the pipe when the receiving barrel is full. The Sankey is not geared up to this procedure or for running a second butt in tandem. This can be over come with some elementary DIY requiring a hack saw and a drill to cut 2cm holes in the side of the Sankey. But so much better if Sankey had made this provision in the first place?
