The one about Water - Rainwater

(and a quick reminder that the Baavet Sale ends midnight this Sunday - 16th)
Our Water Butt Sale Just Got Even Bigger!
We have extended our end of season sale to the HandyCan range of water butts. These water butts hold an impressive 270 litres!

RRP £159. Now at just £65 including VAT and with Free Economy Shipping to UK mainland addresses.

The faux rolled clay finish is available in two distinct matt colours - terracotta and slate. They are made from recyclable PE plastic (much lighter when empty to move into position and far less likely to crack when full of water in cold weather).

Each water butt comes with a black tap and child-safe lid. The water butt stand is optional (just an extra £6) and allows you to utilise the lower tap point more easily (the pictures show the tap at the higher tap point so you can fill a watering can without having to raise the butt).

The space-saving oval design means you can store a lot of water with out taking up too much depth. Dimensions (excluding base): Height: 128cm, Max Width: 73cm, Max Depth: 62cm.

AquaCan Baby
(Last chance! Only terracotta left)

210 litre water butt with planter

The AquaCan Baby is a 210 litre water butt that has a planter under the lid (with really handy handles for lifting in and out) for you to use if you so desire.

The water butt is reminiscent of a grecian urn planter in shape. The faux rolled clay finish is available terracotta only now (we have sold out of the other colours). Made from recyclable PE plastic, this water butt is much lighter and easier to move (when empty) than a terracotta vase of this size!

Each water butt comes with a black tap and child-safe lid.
You can add a water butt stand to your order for just £6!

END OF SEASON SALE - once they are gone they are gone! Just the Terracotta left now!
RRP £121. Now £53 including free delivery to mainland UK addresses.

Ways to Stop Leaves Blocking Down Pipes
(and therefore Drains)
Three easy ways to stop leaves from blocking downpipes and drains

Fed up with unblocking your gutters?

Sometimes it's only when it rains heavily that you realise that your gutters are blocked and that you really have to do something about it. Blocked gutters means that water can overflow against your home walls and lead to damp problems or worse. Blocked drains can be expensive, difficult to fix, and can even lead to flooding. 

Fitting leaf guards at the height of your roof guttering can be problematic even on bungalows. You need a good sized ladder, to feel comfortable standing and working at height, and of course you can't see where the downpipe is blocked until water is flowing over the sides.

We have three downpipe leaf filters that work excellently and are easily installed at a convenient height - no more standing on ladders to reach the guttering! We have written this handy guide to all three of them to help you decide which to fit.

This is what John M said about the Leaf Separator (you can see his review on our website): "Living in a bungalow the gutters seem to collect a lot more leaves and rubbish than on a two storey house. The mesh filters at the top of the fall pipe continually block and gutters overflow. The filter was easy to install and allows the junk to be removed at ground level. Very pleased and will shortly be ordering four more to deal with the rest of the fall pipes. "
