    I've got a water butt which when full diverts the water back down the garage drain pipe into the soak away underneath the corner of the garage. Only problem is water is getting into the garage from the ground up and I believe the soakaway is possibly no longer doing it's job and hasn't been for quite some time.
    So my plan is to divert ALL the water into the butt and when thats full use a hose connected at the fill level and divert it somewhere else in the garden. I finally seen something which will allow me to do away with the bottom half of the drain pipe and connect the top bit directly to the butt.
    Now does anyone know where I can get one of these, see pic.

    Followed the link..... SH!T that's expensive.

    All I wanted was a diverter o_O definitely don't need the filtering bit, think I'll keep looking.

    Thanks anyway.

    Just run the downpipe right into the water butt - cut a hole in the top.
