What bugs have you got?

Water butts, decking, diverters and overflowing

What a fuss your builder is making over this, is he hourly paid!!. maybe he doesn't really know. Did you really need a builder to put a butt in?

The idea of the diverter is to catch the water in the butt, when its full it automatically goes down the drain pipe. Never had a problem.

I have 12 various butts around, some are just big dustbins, anything that catches water. Never had a problem, if something has laid eggs in there they have never been a problems to any of my plants.

I cant see the point either, you have to have them so far apart anyway, you might as well group separate pots together.  I grow them in 5" deep paper pots, you can then put the whole lot in the ground with no root disturbance at all.
