These oak barrel water butts are made from genuine ex-distillery oak barrels. They are available with a number options for collecting rainwater from drainpipes and each is supplied complete with a
submersible pump. The pump includes a float switch, which activates the pump when the water in the barrel reaches a pre-determined level and stops the pump when the water level is low. They are intended for use
with a large plastic storage tank; details of which are available on the previous page. Water is collected either through an entry hole in the lid of the barrel or via a drainpipe diverter.
Please note that all barrel dimensions and capacities are approximate.
