Why you need to ask anyone in the first place if this is a good idea is beyond me. I've got a water butt in my garden and I've been thinking about drilling a hole in the bottom. What do you think I should do leave it as is or drill the hole?

They made the right decision, but it will definitely have done their reputation a bit of damage. Saying that, the fact one of the owners has owed dozens of people thousands of dollars for over a decade for a book he never delivered didn’t seem to stop people using them anyway.

What you need is a poll. I will give you the two options a la yesterday’s Facebook poll:

Should I extract the water from the butt in my garden:

A) from the top

B) from the bottom

That’s perfectly clear, right?

Taking the water is exactly what grading companies who archive/case reproductions, are doing.

I think you're all missing the point. Surely the entire water butt and its contents should be permanently archived inside a sealed perspex case to prevent the water being stolen.

You mean so the next potential buyer knows the water is reproduction.

The water might be reproduction, and I grant you the butt itself is a modern replacement, but the rest of it is completely original.

Talk about egg on your face lol.....who ever came up with that one should be sacked as I can’t comprehend why anyone would think people/collectors would go for that in a million years so can only come to the conclusion it was a money spinning idea

I would like to hear the opinions of the 5 people who voted yes and not just to shoot them down or anything like that. I genuinely would like to see their point of view on this. :)
