WHY DO I NEED A WATER BUTT TAP?

A water butt tap makes it easy for you to fill up a bucket or watering can, simplifying your gardening tasks. Water butt taps allow you to access the collected rainwater quickly and simply, instead of having to deal with an opening on the top of a water butt, which may be difficult for some to reach. Water butts are also environmentally friendly, allowing you to reuse the rainwater you collect, helping to save water — especially useful for summertime droughts. Rainwater is also better for your plants, containing many of the nutrients they need without the chlorine contained within our water supply. Water butts from Original Organics are also particularly useful for households who use a water meter, and can also reduce your home’s carbon footprint.

HOW DO I FIT A WATER BUTT TAP?

Water butt taps can be easily screwed into the fixture on your water butt, and turned on whenever you want to use the collected water for your garden.

HOW DO I POSITION A WATER BUTT?

You need to leave enough space under your water butt tap to be able to release rainwater into a container before using it. Raise your water butt above ground by either attaching it to a wall or placing it on a water butt stand. This gives you room to slot a watering can or bucket underneath and collect rainwater for your gardening tasks.

HOW DO I CHOOSE A WATER BUTT TAP?

We offer a variety of water butt taps for you to choose from, depending on the type of water butt you have. Some of our taps have different measurements, ranging in size from a 3/4" adapter to a 1” BSP adapter, while we also offer different styles. In terms of function, you can pick a tap that turns, or a push-button model. You can order taps for specific models, such as Strata Polybutt tap, but if you’re unsure which water butt is right for you, a universal tap might be your best option.
