Product Overview

240 litre Roto Garden Water Butt - Wood Effect Barrel by Roto is beautifully 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 proud to show it off!

The barrel is roto-moulded from highly durable polyethylene (plastic), which is frost and UV-resistant, meaning you won’t need to worry about weather damage and it will retain its colour and appearance over the years. The 240 litre barrel is the perfect size for a medium size garden allowing you and your plants to benefit from using rainwater instead of tap water.

 What’s Included:

  • 1 x ¾” BSP Tap
  • 1 x Lid
  • 1 x ¾” Blanking Plug & Seal 

You may need to buy a diverter which provides an entry point for the water from your downpipe to the rain barrel. Once the rain barrel is full, the diverter will redirect the excess water back down the drainpipe. Top Tip: The Gutter Mate is recommended if you have a soakaway, as it will prevent it from becoming blocked saving you money in the long term.

 Key Product Features:

  • Five-year warranty for your peace of mind.
  • UV resistant so it will not fade in the sun.
  • Lightweight compared to wood, making it easier to move around the garden.
  • Made from heavy duty polyethylene which is strong plastic that is impact resistant.
  • Two locations for a tap allowing you to place on or off a stand.
  • The lid can act as a bird bath, as it collects water which is only around 1" deep; allowing birds to safely drink and bathe in it.

    Brilliant in looks and build quality. A bit expensive but if you want the look at the front of your house this is the one to buy.

    barrel and stand

    Posted by Timothy on 26th Sep 2021

    We decided on this water butt as the lid comes completely off and the stand matches. I'm very surprised on how much it looks like a real barrel.

    Attractive with matching stand but tap should be supplied BLACK not brown as it is fitted in a black band. Also the tap needs a longer reach to allow for the base diameter at the bottom. I can only fill straight sided watering cans from the equipment supplied, unless I stand and hold them towards the tap - Disappointed.

    Very Pleased

    Posted by Bob on 5th Jun 2020

    Took delivery of this water butt 4 weeks ago and last night/this morning got its first christening with that rare commodity called rain. Found lid floating on the butt as I had the diverter set to the wrong position. Looks the business stood at the front of the house. Very realistic!

    Large Barrel

    Posted by Harry on 21st May 2020

    We wanted a large opening at the top of a water butt to dip the watering can in, as I'm to impatient to wait for it to fill. This barrel was perfect for it. If you want a water butt that looks like a barrel with a large top opening, take a look at this one. H

    Water Butt

    Posted by Paula Jenkins on 12th Feb 2020

    We like the look and feel of the water butt, it looks like a real barrel. I gave it 4 stars as we had to drill the hole for the water to come into the barrel. It would have been nice if this was done for us. When we spoke with the sales staff they said it's due to customers needing the holes in different places, which I can understand.

    Worth the wait..

    Posted by Derek Adams on 2nd Aug 2019

    We had to wait 4 days for the item to come into stock, but they kept me up to date with this. We waited as we could not find another barrel we wanted and glad we did. We ordered two of these and was surprised with how much they looked like wood. We have set them up with the guttermate diverter which has filled the barrels quickly.

    Looks Great, works perfectly

    Posted by Lisa on 4th Jun 2019

    We bought this oak barrel back in the winter and have only just set it up this spring, already it's half full and looks great in our garden! Really easy to use and the tap is very secure so I've had no issues with leaking or water flow. Looks really natural and works like a charm.
