Why Water Wells are Still Useful Today

Since water wells are such an old piece of history, sometimes they seem to get lost in today’s modern world. Although they might not be the hand-dug holes and simple buckets of old that provided water to herds and herds of camels and cows and other livestock like we talked about in previous blog posts, but they still have a use in the world of suburban homes and convenience stores! 

No more water bills!

Did you know that having a well that supplies your house’s water can be more cost-effective than the typical water supply system that your city will offer you? You will still have to shell out some cash for the upkeep of the well along with some water testing, but overall, wells can save you money! Who doesn’t love to save money, right? Water wells allow you to kiss your water bills goodbye as you draw from the earth’s natural water. 

Healthy water, healthy life!

You are what you eat, right? We say you are what you drink! Water treatment plants do the work for you, but do you know what’s going into that water? They treat it with tons of chemicals including Fluoride and/or Chlorine! In high amounts, those chemicals can kill you! The low amounts that are found in your water are certainly not healthy either. 

Well water allows you to avoid sketchy chemicals altogether. Instead of getting the same weird tasting water in your kitchen sink that everyone uses to flush their toilets, you’re able to drink natural water! This isn’t to say that you won’t still have to test it and do some purification yourself, but overall, people do report the taste of the water being better and feeling better drinking it. Water has many benefits to the human body, and drinking water with healthy amounts of minerals not filtered out by a water plant just increases the chances of better health!

More security

If your water is connected to an electrical plant or city water, the chances of you losing it are increased should a hurricane or tornado or power outages happen. This means that you could be out of power and out of running water until your provider gets you back up and running. Not to mention the fact that pipes burst and other unexpected obstacles occur! 

If you have a private well supplying the water to your house, you won’t have to worry about relying on some provider who has tons of houses to check on finally getting around to helping you. During natural disasters, you will still be able to flush your toilets and run your sinks! Although the water may not be hot enough for a relaxing bath, you won’t have to worry about waiting for the water to get turned back on.

Bringing it all together:

All in all, having a water well is a great remedy to some of the most common complaints we hear about. It does require some research and some dedication, but once you have it up and running, it can and will make your life easier! You’ll have healthier water that’s more reliable and cost-effective. It’s a win-win! If you want to get the ball rolling and find some more information about wells, we have some great resources up on our website, or you can drop us a line anytime!
