F.A.Q'S

q.If I connect the hose pipe to the water butt taps, how can I empty them?

a. Empty the water butts using the tap of the HydroButt.
q. I would like to empty the water using the HydroButt tap as well as the water butt tap. Is this possible?

a. Yes. Attach a stepped hosetail connector to the water butt at a similar height as the tap and then connect the hose pipe from the HydroButt to the hosetail. You may need to use a silicon sealant to ensure it is water tight. We recommend aquarium sealant which can be purchased at most aquarium shops. 
q. The water flow when emptying via the HydroButt to slow for my needs. Can this be increased?
 
a. You may need to move the first water butt closer to the HydroButt, or use a larger diameter hose. The HydroButt is supplied with a stepped hosetail connector allowing larger diameter pipe to be connected. You will need to attach a stepped hosetail connector to the water butt at a similar height as the tap and then connect the hose pipe from the HydroButt to the hosetail.

q. How many water butts can I connect to the HydroButt?

a. Providing that you have the space, you can connect as many waterbutts or waterstorage tanks as you desire.
q. How far away can I position the water butts from the HydroButt?

a. This will depend on the diameter of hose you use. For standard garden hose we would recommend the first water butt be no further than 10 metres. The second, and subsequent water butts can be at similar distances apart. If a greater water flow is needed use larger diameter pipe to the first water butt.
q. I have different size water butts. How can I connect these?

a. The only critical issue with connecting multiple water butts is their height. If you have different height water butts you will need to raise or lower their height so they are at the same level or height.
