Rated 4 out of 5 by Alby12 Bad design Stand
The water butt is fine and fills my needs, but not filled with water, because of no rain.
The filler Kit is fine, and easy to fit, no complaints there.
However, the stand, comes in four pieces, and only connects together at the bottom of each section. This can be a bit tricky, as the top of the stand only holds together with the weight of the water butt on it. Unlike the larger 120 ltr model i have, which has a solid round stand, therefore much easier to handle when putting into possison. So for the older, not so steady gardner, Check out the STAND STRUCTURE before you purchase. Otherwise just pray for some rain to fill your water butt and its fine.

Recently purchased this water butt for my small garden and am delighted both with the quality and how easy it was to install. My down-pipe is close to the fence so cutting into the pipe was a bit fiddly but hardly the products fault!
The stand easily slots together and is functional. I already have one water butt so I simply transferred some water into the new butt to give it a bit more stability until the rains come again. The lid is a good fit and the product price is highly competitive. I collected the product through click and collect and transported it home using public transport no problem. Not heavy just a bit awkward!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bigbadwolf Cheap and cheerful
For the low price I couldn't find anything close to this as comes with everything you need, stand, tap, drainpipe connector.
The butt is made from recycled plastic so feels quite flimsy and there was a massive excess blob of plastic on the base meaning the butt doesn't sit great on the base. But saying all that it is current full of water and still standing upright without bursting open.
I ended up putting a quick release (Hozelock) tap on the butt and reused the existing drainpipe connector so I cannot comment on the quality of the supplied tap and drainpipe connector.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HunterPie Excellent budget item
I searched hard to find anywhere with water butts in stock - perhaps recent drought (several weeks of heavy rain and still a hosepipe ban) conditions have resulted in massive demand. As I have a small garden I wanted something compact and this is perfect. I ordered on a Tuesday and chose the earliest delivery date (the following Monday) so I was delighted when it turned up on the Friday! Easy to assemble and connect, no problems and a bargain price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Paul01 Not as Easy as they say
The delivery was delayed and was a week late. A poor start there. I thought I would install it for my mother in law an easy job, shouldnt take too long.!
Most of it is straight forward, but they require you to cut a 26mm hole into the water butt. Great fun was had with an old manual drill and file.
Surely it should come pre drilled?
Apart from that a nice looking robust item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Viney1234 Great water saving idea
Excellent product, compact and can be put out of the way. Not quite as easy to install as instructions made out but only because it was really difficult to push the connecting hose onto the connectors - very tight and required a bit of muscle work. Excellent product that I would recommend to anyone wanting to do their bit for the plant and save some water

We recently bought a water butt with stand and filler kit. It would fit into the smallest garden. It fits under the windowsill and takes up no more floor space than a large bucket. We found it quick and easy to install and until today have been waiting for it to rain. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yankeecandle1 Best Purchase ever
I was absolutley delighted with this purchase i don't know why i never thought of getting one before as it so practical not having to go backwards and forward filling up a watering can and with the hose pipe ban coming up it was a good investment when we get some rain wonderful
