How do I stop the green slime forming in my water butts?



Are they open to the light?

The classic solution was to put a small amount of potassium permanganate in the water, but I'm not sure if that is easily purchased nowadays. Keeping the light out should stop it happening.

I bought a product called Biotal it's a natural enzyme to maintain freshness it can be bought at garden centres
