Gardening typically accounts for much of the additional demand we see during hot weather. A water butt is one of the easiest ways to collect and save a large amount of rainwater to use later in the summer months. On average one waterbutt holds the same amount of water as 25 watering cans, and most plants prefer rainwater over tap water.
