Hot weather is great news for sunseekers – but often bad news for gardeners.
The baking summers often spark hosepipe bans across the country, making watering plants and lawns a nightmare.
But this year thousands of people are preparing a genius eco-friendly workaround for the problem which means they won’t have to worry about a ban.
How? By installing a £17 wilko 100L slim injection water butt which can collect water on rainy days – such as those forecast for this weekend – to use in the dryer months.
The slimline and robust tank is made from strong and sturdy recycled material with a tight fitting lid.
And better yet, it’s really easy to set up in your outdoor space! It’s designed to stand up against a wall, but the best option is to pair it with a stable wilko slim water butt stand (£12) so you have the freedom to place anywhere in your garden.
wilko’s Senior Technologist Sam said:”Water butts are ideal for those with gardens that need frequent watering and are easy to use, fantastic value and good for the environment.”
Customers have also been raving about them online. One said: “Bought three of these. Excellent quality and delivered super fast! Well impressed”
And another wrote: “Good quality and excellent value for money – this is more than adequate for the job. Well done wilko looking after our pennies!”
