There are around 15 million people who have installed residential wells in the U.S. With the rise in popularity of going off-grid, more people are considering installing wells than ever. Residential wells offer a multitude of benefits:
It might seem obvious that having access to a well only used by your household can provide cleaner water. Not only is that true, but you can also eliminate unwanted bacteria and keep healthy minerals by installing your own filtration system. With city water, many good-for-you minerals are removed from the water from the filtration systems they utilize. Installing your own allows you to choose what goes into your water.
Increases Property Value
Having a well installed on your property adds a significant value to your home. Not many properties offer prospective home buyers self-sufficiency like a well does. Although the installation of a well can seem like a large financial investment, the outcome can save you thousands of dollars in the long run and increase the value of your home.
Access to a Reliable Source of Water
Hands down the most desirable attraction to having your own well is the self-sufficiency it provides. Knowing where your water is coming from, how it is processed, and what is in it is an extremely valuable asset today.
After the initial investment of digging and installing a well, the financial freedom from your monthly water bill is liberating. This is a great solution for big families who are utilizing water more than other households.
Decreased Environmental Impact
City water requires heavy machinery to filter water. These filtration systems require a great deal of energy thus negatively impacting our environment. Installing a well is more eco-friendly, largely due to the fact it reduces fossil fuel consumption and removes harmful pollutants. Installing a well can be a large financial investment initially, but the long-term benefits are invaluable. Whether you are looking to install a well, or simply need repairs done, D.
