The 130L Garden Water Butt - Wood Effect Barrel by Roto is beauitfully made to blend in with the natural surroundings of your garden. No need to hide this water butt away from visitors as its design and quality will make you pround to show it off.
The Rain Barrel is roto-moulded from a highly durable polyethylene which is UV and impact resistant, so the barrel keeps its look and shape over the years.
The 130L includes a tap for ease of use. You will need to buy a downpipe filter which provides an entry point for the water from your downpipe to the rain barrel. The filter will stop the unwanted leaves and dirt entering the rain barrel helping to stop clogging and contamination of the water. Once the rain barrel is full, the downpipe filter will redirect the excess water back down the drainpipe. At the bottom of the rain barrel, you are provided with a tap which allows to you fill your watering can.
The 130L is the perfect size for a small courtyard or garden. Both you and your plants will benefit from using rainwater instead of tap water.

Why should I collect rainwater?
- Collecting free rainwater allows you to reduce your water bill and provides water which is free from chlorine - a chemical added to drinking water that inhibits plant growth. Another benefit of storing rainwater outside is the natural temperature of the water, which will not shock your plants like cold water from a tap can do.
Connecting Rain Barrels and Water Butts together:
- If you decide that you want to connect your rain barrles together at the start or in the future, this is not a problem. All you need to do is run a connecting pipe between both barrels which allows the water to pass between them both. You olny need to have one filter for both barrels or water butts as this is connected to you guttering downpipe.
