Hi all many thanks for your help ,the link from Dove as usual was very helpful, the blue butts are almost identical to the ones we get from the farmers here ,as usual delivery price is high due to the size ,and i hope our water meter will be kind as in Falmouth we were paying believe it or not ??24:99 A WEEK true,, many thanks to you all .Alan4711

Hi all again and i need help with water butts ,were moving to Norfolk very soon new house big garden already full of wonderful plants,and the dreaded water meter,So has anyone in that area (Cromer,Mundesley ) found a supply of the big blue dairy farm disinfectant barrels we all use here in Tenby, most farmers are glad to get rid as they are non returnable and just perfect for butts (about 40 gollon ),just add a BnQ tap in the side or join them all up low down and tap the end one works a treat, anyone out there know where to get em please.
