I've inherited some water butts which I'd like to use to water the garden, but there's no pressure. Is there a pump I could use to boost the pressure, similar to shower pumps? The butt are sealed (as far as I know, it's all new to me) so ideally it'd take water from the butt outlet & pump into the hose, shutting off on pressure.

davej, can you post a picture of exactly what you have. never known a water butt to be sealed. (have a lid yes, but sealed) Might be an IBC? (but most have a screw on cap)

Connect the water pump to a hose with one of these on the other end.

The pump will keep working till it's switched off but the water will stop flowing.

FWIW the cost of buying and running a pump will greatly outweigh any savings on your water bill.
