....to water my garden with.

I want a very large water butt.

It has to be rectangluar and not cost a fortune.

Is there anything I can use (like a cold water tank - from the attic) Couls it be easily adapted?

Any suggestions??

A lid would be important!

I've seen a rectangular one somewhere. Can't think where! It would only be small though - spacesaver.

You would have to make a homemade one safe, though - cats, hedgehogs - not to mention kids!

The gap it is going to sit in is 800x1400 and up to 2m high - I just assumed that rectangular would fit the space best.

It to collect from a roof that is 50spqm - so it needs to be quite big.

And it must be safe (I childmind)

Try googling, Katie, I found a few such as these these and these . Be careful about prices - they seem to vary wildly for the same item!

Thanks Sue love the rectangular one - but so expensive!!!!

I'll keep looking as little ones will overflow all the time

Oh, crumbs, I didn't notice the price of that one!! It is a bit expensive, isn't it?

They don't overflow if you put the pipe from the drainpipe into the butt at the right level. Does that make sense??!!
