    Hi,

    I need to connect 2 water butts that are about 6 metres apart. You can readily buy connector kits, but the pipe in those is less than a metre long.
    Does anyone know what the type of pipe is called and where i could get a 6 metre length?

    I've done a bit of research, and found what looks to be similar, it's called conduit pipe...or JG pipe.. is this the right stuff?

    Many thanks..

    find the size you want then go to a aquatic shop they keep it all.

    the sheds do the basic stuff.
    you can buy it by the metre in the aquatic stores.
    or garden centres that deal in pond equipment etc.

    While you're there, get some fish to keep in the butts. If small enough they can swim through the pipe between the butts to visit the neighbours.
