Water butts are used for septic tanks, which contain containers that serve to store rainwater for harvesting. They have 200 liters of capacity and are made from lightweight material. It can be easily carried wherever you want to put it. It is usually located in the rear of the house, near the garden, where rain that is stored from the butts is utilized to water the garden.
Instead of utilizing a hose to get water from the main water line, these butts provide a great source of watering your garden. It is possible to install water butt connectors and filters to at least one container that is connected to each other using a storage connector that is available at hardware stores.
Connecting five 200 liters of water butts is less expensive than building a 1000 liter storage tank capacity. Water storage is useful in dry areas to store rainwater for domestic use. The rainwater that is stored in water containers can be used to wash clothes, water plants and washing the toilets, washing vehicles, and other domestic uses.
The butts should be covered to keep them from becoming a breeding ground for larvae as any freshwater is what mosquitoes seek to breed in and to also prevent contamination. Water is usually placed over the ground, and the material is typically transparent to block sunlight and reduce the growth of algae.
