We all love something for free and making sure you’re collecting your rain water for use in the garden is a good Eco friendly way of getting free water for the garden. I came across this ingenious invention the other day which is definitely worth plugging. The rainwater hub channels rain water collection as normal, through guttering and down-pipes. However, it is mounted above the height of your target water butt you intend to fill and uses gravity and a hose to fill up the butt.
Because of the height, it will allow gravity to move the collected water up to 150 meters away. This means your water butt can be stored where its needed, maybe out of sight or to a more needed place in the garden, or just to free up patio space. It also allows for modular siphoning, allowing you string several (or infinite) water butts together and to construct a water butt farm.
Not sure if they’re making this anymore, there website doesn’t seem to load.
