Reading comments on water butts prompted me to ask about down pipe connectors for a HALLS aluminium GH.The guttering is1" wide and I am unable to find a connection that fits. Any ideas please. Thank you.


When I got my halls Silverline last year, it came with small pipe from gutter, which my brilliant builder attached to slimline waterbutt. Any probs and I will photo it and post here for you


Thank you, Bob and Artjak. I did look but will  try again.

I do not want to sound mean,but if you have skips and people re -doing their gutters e.t.c. you can often find attachments to convert to your water butt free..We did, saves landfill and you money.



Hi Jatnikapyar,  this one looks like the right one - to fit 25mm built-in guttering:

They do seem expensive though.  It would be difficult to make something due to the design - mine is the same, they push into the end of the square-section aluminium gutter.  I lost one of the end-stops at the other end, so water just ran out, but I fixed that by replacing it with a large blob of silicone sealant (blu-tack would probably have done!)


Thank you Flowering rose.......I often do that. My neighbours had their garden "re-designed" and threw out 4 skip loads of beautiful plants(bought at great cost) and lots of pots etc. as they did not fit in their new design!

I got permission and acquired some good gear for my garden.What a waste....small wonder that our planet is in trouble.

Bob, you are right, I went on the site........almost £20.00p for a 1" connection!! Like you I shall do a "heath robinson" and stick it on with some aquatic glue

By the way, I did something similar to you, using a a plastic "top" that are sold to protect plant canes as that bit is also not sold seperately but a "kit" for 20 pounds!! Boy, talk about rip off, the mind boggles.
