I’m trying to install 2 water butts off my shed (butt A and butt B), but due to the space and fences etc I won’t be able to reach B at all once installed.
So I want to set them up so that I can use tap A to drain both A and B. Is that possible?
Also, I don’t want it to be possible that B is full and A is empty.
My plan is:
- Have the gutters drain into the top of B.
- Drill a hole in the side at the bottom of A.
- Link B to A from B’s tap hole to the drilled hole in A.
Would that work? Is there a better way?
My only worry is that the water pressure will be low when the butts are half full. Is there a way to keep A full while also using B’s capacity? Apart from stacking them on top of each other But that’s essentially the effect I want! A stays full so long as the total amount of water exceeds 1 butts worth and I have twice the capacity. But how? A siphon maybe?
