One huge benefit of living in a rural area is access to a cleaner, more natural source of water: well water.
Keep reading to learn about the 3 top benefits of having a private water well installed as opposed to paying for city water.
Well Water is Cleaner
Most municipal water comes from rivers and lakes. Unfortunately these once pristine bodies of water are now polluted with various contaminants.
What’s worse, to make city water safe for drinking, it must be treated with low-dose chemicals and chlorine. Even though these chemicals are added in lower doses. If you drink 8 glasses of water a day, exposure to these chemicals can add up over time.
Another way we are exposed to these pollutants and harsh chemicals is during a shower. First, our skin absorbs the water. Then, the steam from the shower actually makes these chemicals airborne allowing them to get into our lungs.
With a private water well, you’ll know everything about the water, from the actual source to what substances are in it. You can also conduct additional water treatments and testing to make sure it is as clean as possible.
Well Water Will Cost Less
At Ries Well Drilling, often times clients ask us how much it costs to operate their pump and how does it compare to using public water?
Typically, with city water you can pay several dollars for every 1,000 gallons. With a water well you will pay less than a dollar for every 1,000 gallons you pump from the ground.
Not only are you saving on your utility bill, but you also remove the expense of city water taking sewage away from your property. So even though there are costs to have your water well installed, you will actually save money long term.
Of course, it is your responsibility to maintain the quality and safety of your water and your water system. Be sure to contact a Lapeer County water well drilling company to get on a scheduled maintenance program.
Well Water Is Reliable
With well water, you won’t have to worry about interruptions in service due to contamination or situations that are beyond your control, such a burst water main. With a private water well installed, it is your water, and access to it, belongs entirely to you. With proper maintenance, your water system will provide all the water you need, whenever you need it.
