Honestly, I think you're spamming the newsgroup. If you like the
products so much, how come you're not actually singing specific
praises for some engineering or aesthetic characteristic, and instead
just pimping the URL?
Now, IMO, 110 or even 220 litres simply isn't enough water to bother
with paying circa 60 UKP (about 94 USD) before VAT and post. I can
watch CraigsList, and pick up a 1000+ litre "IBC tote" for 100 USD on
almost any given day, and if you pay attention, you can score them for
even less (I have _9_ that I got for FREE - and their previous life
was storage of biodegradeable camp soap, so not some toxic junk I'd
have to fret over). Yea, they're not the sort of thing to plonk on a
small patio or on your deck, but they're uniform size, have large
valves already, and are easy enough to fence in with a little trellis,
Granted, I'm not using mine for a gravity system - I'm plumbing them
to a pump, well bladder tank and a 3-way actuator valve to
automatically run garden irrigation when there's water in the tanks,
and switch to well when there's insufficient water in the tanks.
With so much good stuff out there, I can't see overpaying for
something you could easily fab from a 30 or 50 gallon plastic
foodstuff barrel and some hardware.
So, WHY is the "waterbutt" so nifty?
That amount of water certainly wouldnt' be much use if the weather gets hot
and there is no rain for an extended length of time and it does seem like a
lot of money for the quantity. OTOH, I encourage everyone to try to store
some water and espeically if thye have to rely on Mains supply.
They are good. Very popular here for cheap fire fighting trailers or for
carting water to stock.
