Our French wine barrel water butts are bound with galvanised hoop iron for long life, they are available with either a fixed or removable lid with or without the optional drainpipe notch, plus a full range of fittings which includes an optional rainsaver, a selection  of authentic wooden taps, we also offer a range of ornamental brass taps which come complete with a handy hose pipe union.
  Brass Taps
Rainwater barrels have the option of having a brass tap fitted near the bottom of the barrel. Brass taps are available in three different styles. The frog tap version includes a screw-on hose-tail to which a length of garden hose may be attached.
  Wooden Taps
Oak barrel butts are also available fitted with wooden barrel taps. Three sizes of tap are available, i.e. 7" (17½cm), 8" (20cm) and 10" (25cm). The larger the tap the greater the flow of water.
  Rainwater Barrel Lids
Water butts can have either a loose lift-off lid or a fixed non-removable end. Either may be notched to allow entry of a drainpipe. Fixed ends are a safer option for children. We recommend fixed ends because they restrict air flow into the barrel and also trap moist air inside the barrel. This is beneficial for the barrel during hot, dry weather conditions. Reduced air flow also reduces the possibility of stagnant water effects.

  Rainsaver Diverters
Easy way to connect your water butt to a downpipe. This device diverts water from the downpipe to the water butt until the water butt is full. Any further water passes straight down the downpipe. No need for notches or lids. Barrel is supplied with a screwed connection point when purchased with a diverter.
Use a stand to lift the barrel off the ground increasing the clearance from the tap to the ground by an additional 4". This makes it sufficient for most buckets and watering cans. Our stands are made from pressure treated timber for long life.
