What’s Really in Your Water? A Few Signs You Should Switch to Well Water
If you live in a rural area, you might consider switching from utility granted water to well produced water. Why? It may seem fine to just trust the water your local utility service provides, but depending on their methods of filtration and your home’s plumbing system, it could be time for a change. If you’re not sure exactly what is in your water, now might be a good time to look into it. Here are a few encouraging reasons why the switch over to well water is a good choice.
Everyone Uses Municipal Water
Yes, it’s very common to conclude the water from your municipal source is safe. Your neighborhood uses it, your mortgages favor it, and your health department checks records whether it’s healthy to drink. However, the truth is that no water is 100% pure. It can’t be confirmed that it always will be pure when there are plenty of other factors that can affect the true quality of your water. Your local water source may be well maintained, but how can you be sure the pipes your water runs through are up to par? What techniques or chemicals are they using to make sure your water tastes like it is? The funny thing about municipal water is that it’s commonly trusted, but rarely questioned. When you have your own personal water source, such as a well, you have control and full knowledge about it. You’ll know where it’s coming from, how it’s being filtered, and what kind of pipes the water is flowing through.
The Advantages of Well Water
When you contact a professional well drilling service to install a well, there are plenty of advantages to look forward to. A health department can assure that your water is fine, but over time, water conditions change. A professional well drilling company has no problem visiting your well for frequent maintenance checkups. This includes testing the water to make sure it’s safe. Any faulty plumbing or natural chemicals that end up in your water can be detected by them. The sooner it’s found, the better off you and your family will be. Again, no water is 100% pure, so a filtration system will be installed so you can enjoy the taste of “soft” water.
There’s also a significant difference if you compare the price of monthly bills versus paying for the well and maintenance checkups. Depending on how much water you and your family use, the water bill can spike and drop. When you have a private water source, you’re not paying any more for extra use. Once you have the well, it’s done.
