Further to my earlier posting on this subject, it seems my complaints to Hozelock didn’t go unnoticed.
A couple of days ago, I received another email from them, and today arrived a complementary water butt pump.
At the moment, with my rearrangement, things aren’t going to bad, so I am not going to use it yet. However, I do feel that it will be healthier to water the garden properly once or twice a day, rather than continuously trickle – one part of my garden has recently started growing fungi.
So I’ll leave it for now, but install it for next year, when I start afresh.
