  • Great value 7/24/2018
    I bought 2 of these and have been impressed with the great value - with all elements included - drainpipe connector, stand and lid. The taps fit easily into the pre-threaded holes, there are 2 bottom holes for connecting the butts and a tap, plus two top holes. The tanks are robust and the lid fits securely (although as mentioned before it's a bit fiddly). Not connected the rainwater diverter as I already had one in place, so I can't comment. Word of warning - don't get the linking kit (H930515LKITI) if you want to connect your water butts at the bottom as the hose doesn't fit tightly enough onto the elbow joint and leaks, then comes off under greater pressure.
  • Very impressed by price and quality. 5/25/2018
    I originally purchased 3 butts to collect water from my bungalow roof and outbuildings. I was so impressed by the price and quality, I have ordered 2 more
  • Great butt but with one but. 10/17/2017
    Great value compared to many others on the market. Particularly because everything is included in the price. Fits on the stand well. One criticism; the instructions for the downpipe rain trap are pants and the marking tape mentioned was missing. Here's how to do it; Mount butt on stand near downpipe. With a spirit level transfer water line level from butt to pipe. Mark 12.5mm either side of line and cut out that piece then follow remaining instructions. Connecting pipe is a loose fit on butt spigot and needs some sealant. Otherwise great product.
  • Perfect water solution 6/27/2017
    This is a great quality butt kit. I love the pre-drilled holes with well fitting bungs, especially the options for left or right connection to the downpipe. The only fiddly bit was cutting the drain pipe and rain trap lid. The tap is smooth to operate, and has a good flow. The base segments fitted together easily and the whole unit is very stable. The lid safety mechanism is a little tricky to operate, but as I only need to lift the lid to add water conditioner it is worth having. Thoroughly recommend the Harcostar, and Even Greener
  • Has lasted 10-15 years and stil no fading 3/9/2017
    I bought this a long time ago. It is still in great condition and looks the same dark green colour, unlike another one which is badly faded. Reason for comment: just about to buy a third barrel!
