Collect and conserve water with our range of water butts
At Kingfisher Direct, we understand the role which sustainable water management has on the environment. We stock a range of high-quality water butts designed to help you collect, conserve, and utilise rainwater efficiently.
Why choose our water butts?
Effortless rainwater collection
Installing a water butt is a straightforward process. You can effortlessly channel rainwater into the water barrel by attaching it to a drainpipe and using a rain diverter. This clever system lets you directly capture rainwater, reducing wastage and optimising water use.
No overflow worries
Once your water butt is full, there's no need to be concerned about water overflow. The system is designed to seamlessly direct excess water down the drainpipe, ensuring that the rainwater collection process is hassle-free and self-regulating.
By collecting and reusing rainwater, you not only reduce your reliance on treated water sources but also lower your water bills. This sustainable approach to water management helps conserve vital resources and reduces your ecological footprint.

We offer a variety of water butts to suit your style and preferences. Whether you're looking for the timeless charm of stone effects, the classic appeal of circular designs, the decorative flair of our ornate options, or the space-saving advantages of tall water butts and wall-mounted water butts, we have a range of choices to complement your space.
