Product Description

250L and 500L Wood Effect Rain Barrels

The wood grain and old metal banding effects of these water butts was moulded from a vintage oak beer barrel, achieving a level of likeness to the real thing that will amaze!  These superb Water Butts are not only a great way of harvesting your rain water but also makes an attractive, rustic addition to your garden or decking.

Manufactured from UV resistant polyethylene, this wood effect rain barrels will not fade in sunlight, is weather resistant, is rot-proof and will not dry out and crack in the sun. Some might even say the level of detailing looks better than a real wooden one, and of course it will last longer as well.

The water butt features a brass ¾” connection point for the screw in metal tap (supplied) and two bottom side outlets for draining or connecting to another tank. There is also a removable lid for ease of access which features a child safety lock.

Optional Extras

Rainwater Diverter

We recommend installing the 3P Filter Collector Universal with your Wooden Barrel effect Water Butt. The Filter Collector connects your Water Butt to your Downpipe via a 30cm length of Hose and also filters the water, removing any debris, before transferring the water into the tank. The Filter Collector is ideal for roof areas up to 90m2 (other filters are available for larger roof areas).

The Filter Collector Universal can be chosen in the options above and included with your order at a reduced price when purchased with the Water Butt.

The Filter Collector Universal is also available with longer Water Butt to Downpipe linking kits (lengths of1m, 2m or 5m). If you would prefer your Barrel water butt to be positioned further away from your downpipe, select "No Thanks" in the options above and order separately from the Filter Collector Universal page.

Tank to Tank Connection Kit

A Water Butt Linking Kit can be purchased to join two Water Tanks together using the lower 3/4" brass threaded ports.

How to link water tanks together

If you already have a wall tank (or other water butt with a 3/4 inch BSP female threaded connection point near the base of the tank) you can purchase a 3/4" Tank to Tank Connection Kit.

  1. Practical and realistic 5 Star Review

    Good quality product. Looks like a real barrel from a short distance but doesn't leak everywhere like a real barrel does!
    Easy to drill holes for connectors etc if required. Supplied brass tap is good quality as well.

    The oak barrel casting is a beautiful object and a great asset for saving rainwater for the greenhouse and the garden

  3. Looks fantastic 5 Star Review

    I spent ages looking for a half decent looking water butt for the back garden, anything sub £100 was just ugly and there was nothing between £100 - £250. But when this arrived, it just looks amazing so happy, and the quality, pukka. Could not be happier in the end.

    Bought this for Mum to replace her 40 year old wood barrel which had started to rot. She was thrilled as it looks like the old one and "the real thing". Very reasonable price and speedy delivery. Excellent all round service.
