Well I remember the experts were talking about Global Warming, and when it did not turn

Out to be so they called it Climate Change. So now it's Raining like very day what are we going to call it.

A normal British summer!

You need to remember, Global Warming means that the planet as a whole is getting warmer. That doesn't mean that it will get warmer everywhere and by the same amount. It wasn't called British Warming

My trouble is I want to move one of my water butts.

Warm air holds more water, which means there is more to fall out.

 

Like manders said - a good match to the models.

 

On the plus side, our water butts are full. I haven't seen any moans about lack of water for plants this year.

Not when it's full you don't! When we got ours, I was worried about the small children pulling it over. ha, needn't have worried about that, I can't even shift it slightly! Got to love the British summer!

buy another one and empty the old one into it then move it. Bit like digging a hole to put the soil from the previous hole.

tongue firmly planted in cheek of course.

Drill a hole near the bottom it should reduce the weight a bit.

I am down to 170 Ltrs using about 14 Ltrs a day so 12 days left.

On the bbc weather app for the next 10 days no rain in my area.

How long can you use tap water for on the plants. Tap water TDS is 315

My rainwater TDS is 20, what's my other choice if I run out.

off to your local marine aquarium shop and buy ro water my local sells container full and free refills .Failing that if you must use tap water at least let it stand for 48 hrs for chlorine etc  to leave .Has any one used aquarium treatment on tap water for cps eg Tetra tap safe water treatment ?

Not where I live in east anglia it's been very dry over the last 8 weeks.

I only feed my plants rainwater if it runs out it will be costly for RO.

I think most would like to feed them rainwater in the first place.

I have added another water butt of 100 Ltrs so got 500 Ltrs now.

All I need now is a big storm, they keep saying it's coming but it keeps missing us.
