Cascata 245 litre water barrel - with decorative crown planter/bird bath

The Algreen rain barrel designed in Canada and built in the UK combines the timeless aesthetic elegance of ceramics with the enduring longevity of modern plastics. The Algreen rain barrels are made of rotomolded plastic that is able to withstand extreme temperature and will not chip or crack. The Cascata offer several different ways that it can be connected to rainwater outlets and the way it can be used.

The Cascata consists of:

  • Crown Planter/Bird bath
  • Corrosion Proof Screen Guard
  • Brass Tap
  • Overflow Valve
  • Elbow fitting for Hose attachment
  • Hook for hanging Garden Hose
  • 148cm Garden Hose with Shut-off Nozzle

The colour of the Cascata is a realistic terracotta finish and is:

  • Approximate height - 115cm 
  • Approximately diameter - 63cm (at widest point)
  • Weight 11 kilo
  • Holds 245 Litres

Optional extras include:

  • Pump kit (to enable up to three Cascata's to be connected together and emptied using just one pump)
  • Pump only
  • Diggers Diverter for easy connection to down pipe
  • Fresha Tank disc (Keeps water fresh & clean)
  • Hose adapter for tap
  • Adapter to convert GHT thread to BSP for popular watering devices

The Planter can alternatively be used as a bird bath.

Planting tips

Three small holes can be drilled into the bottom of the planter to allow excess water to drain down into the barrel. Capillary matting can be placed at the bottom of the planter to keep moisture in the planter and prevent soil going into the barrel. Alternatively Capillary matting can be placed on top of the screen guard. The rear hole in the planter, if not used for a down pipe, can be used to stand a plant pot in to give height to any planting.

Please note - the Cascata doesn't come with an overflow hose as we don’t know how or where the barrel is going to be installed in your garden. You will need to cut back one of the spigots on the back of the barrel and add a suitable hose.

    Compliments on a water butt?

    Posted by Jo on 18th Jul 2021

    Who would think that out of all the hard work I've put into my garden over the past year, the thing that has had the most compliments has been this water butt - it does look amazing and I think it will weather in well. I have mostly left the top to fill with water but actually it's handy to place the odd dry flower pot in for an hour to have a good drink. It was easy to put together and the hose is really handy as it's got a better flow than the tap. I'm considering buying another one for the front of my house to encourage myself to actually water plants out front. It's not cheap but probably worth it as so much better than the usual black ones that I already have a couple of. For the reference the company was also really good at keeping me up to date about my order as there were delays due to manufacturing issues.

    the only comment I have is the tap which must be for show as the Handel touches the side. For a couple of £ a good quality bib cock should have been provided
