Topic: My butt

Spent a good few hours saturday having a fiddle about on my shed roof and managed to get the guttering downpipe into my butt.   

I was so happy, my butt hasn't had anything going into it for some time and it had got all dry inside.

I'm pleased to report that it's very wet this morning and I've had my butt filled up.

Re: My butt

Excellent news.  Just keep an eye out for leakage.  A leaky butt can be quite a problem.  It has a tendency to soften wood.

Re: My butt

I had to use electrical tape (Red) to repair my overflow pipe after it was damaged over the years.

Re: My butt

taping up your pipe is a sure way of keeping it firm and in good working order!

Re: My butt

Be careful filling your butt up.  If it doesn't sit right you can get a nasty crack and then your butt leaks and it ends up dripping  default/yikes

Aim to please, but shoot to kill.

Re: My butt

My butt overflows into the one next to it and then the third one.

Abi and I are happy our three butts have been filled up,  Tonic isn't so sure.

When they're all full it just runs out onto the ground.  My plan is to take the excess away into my pond and that can then overflow further down so I don't end up with a wet sticky mess up near my butt

I checked the other shed at the end of the garden and that's got some double-butt action going on too and both of those butts are full too

Re: My butt

You could always set up some form of programmable butt leakage, so that it transports fluid away from your butt at regular intervals to where you want it.  It can then water your garden for you.

Re: My butt

We have a couple of big butts down the side of the house and another by the garage, all are sufficiently moist.  We keep a couple of small ones behind the greenhouse but they're dry and unused at the minute but I'm looking forward to getting my pipework into them during the summer.

I also have a feeder to catch any over spill into a trough where I overwinter some of my meat eating growths.  default/big_smile
