My waterbutt lid has fallen into the bottom of the butt!! It has been there for a while now as I cannot reach it. The water has a scum on it and I am not sure this is good. Should I try and cover it with something else or is there a way to freshen the water?



Our water butt is never covered and we use the water all the time without any problems.

Just tip it and empty it out -- that way you can get the lid back if you want to put it back on
