Prestige Water Butt FAQs
Can the Prestige Water Butt be mounted asymmetrically around the downpipe.
Yes is the short answer. Simply remove one of the two planter caps in the top of the water butt and direct the downpipe into the tank. This provides ~14cm offset perfect if your downpipe is coming down the edge of a wall. A typical gully drain is 30-40cm wide so no modification to the outlet pipe should be required. If it is an issue simply purchase a downpipe offset kit here.
I've been asked to provide rainwater attenuation storage for my new house extension can the Prestige Water Butt be used for this?
Yes. Please give us a call to discuss your requirements in more detail.
Can I link more than one water butt together?
Yes. The linking kits are free for more than one purchase.
Can the Prestige water butt be used to use to fill remote water butts?
Yes the Prestige water butt can act as a rainwater hub. Simply attach a length of hose between the Prestige water butt and the remote water butt.

This is an effective method of achieving 100% yield since there are no diverter losses which may lose up to 80% of the flow volume during heavy storms.
Can the inside be cleaned?
Yes. simply pop a hose into the tank via the top planter access and either remove the tap or side bung and allow the fine silt to be washed out into a bucket.
Does the Prestige bulge when full like other slimline water butts?
All water butts bulge a when full some noticeably more than others. However, part of the Prestige's patented design has an anti bulge feature which limits bulging.
