Still waiting for the rain, the irony isn't lost on me honest! Will report back once it has

Right I've been out and undone it all. On one side there's the hole and 4 grooves for square pipes (this is what I've got) and then on the other side is a hole angled on one side. I believe I had put this the wrong way up! It didn't say in the instructions which way so I kept it the way it came in the packaging which now seems rather foolish. I've switched them round so the angle which should be the overflow is at the top and will then wait for the rain! Many thanks for all your help

I think that I will undo it and check there's no blockage - the pipe is virtually straight as directed in the instructions. I'm going to check for kinks. Many thanks

Yes that's right. There was a divert or kit with the butt that I attached to the down pipe by sawing a piece off. It had to be level with the water butt. It was supposed to just slot into the down pipe but there's no valve to turn. Any other ideas? I'd really like to make use of this deluge!

Sorry - first post! I've installed a water butt, a Sankey and it's not collecting. Water is draining straight out of the downpipe and I've searched online and can't find any problem solving. Can anyone help me with suggestions?
