is essential for any person who wants to be self-sufficient
. Apart from the environmental benefits of using rainwater
rather than chemically treated potable water in the garden, with water meters
becoming more common it can save you a considerable amount of money each year. Crops prefer rainwater to tap water, and it's great for washing your hair too!
A water butt
is a large container used to store water. There are many commercial water butts
available in DIY shops, online, and at garden centres etc, but they tend to be pretty expensive. A cheaper alternative is to purchase large recycled
human food, animal feed, and similar containers and use these as water butts, or to use large plastic dustbins.
Multiple water butts can be connected together easily - see this article Connecting Water Butts

The recycled 220 litre water butt
pictured above was listed on eBay for just £12 plus £10 postage, or you can buy five of them for just £90 including postage - enough to store over 1 tonne of water!
