It used to be that only homeowners living in remote or rural areas had private water wells. It was more because of necessity than a choice. However, that seems to be changing. More homeowners in populated areas are opting to have a private well. Residential water well drilling provides many benefits that can be appealing to homeowners.
Independent Water Source
Residential water well drilling provides homeowners with an independent water source. For example, if there is a drought or other water shortage in your area, having your own well means you won’t have to worry about losing your water supply. Additionally, wells provide higher quality water than municipal water sources, as they are not treated with chemicals like chlorine. This can be particularly important for people with certain medical conditions or who are sensitive to chemicals.
Residential water well drilling can be a cost-effective way to access clean, fresh water. Having your own well means you won’t have to pay a municipal water bill every month, saving you a significant amount of money over time. After the initial installation expense, you will only have the cost of annual testing for impurities and contamination and occasional maintenance, instead of a monthly water bill.
It is estimated that approximately 61 million people in the US don’t drink their tap water. In many cases, that water is municipal water. Residential water well drilling provides homeowners with access to high-quality water that is not treated with chemicals like chlorine which can affect the taste. A properly maintained well will provide better tasting water that is more enjoyable to drink than municipal water. Just think of all the money you’ll save by no longer buying bottled water!
The absence of all the chemicals contained in municipal water not only makes it taste better, but it is better for you. This can be important for people with certain medical conditions, who are health-conscious and careful about what they put into their bodies.
The lack of chemicals necessary for municipal water makes residential water well drilling a more eco-friendly option than other water sources, such as municipal systems. Residential water well drilling is a more environmentally friendly option than using city water. In addition to the chemical treatments, it takes a significant amount of energy to pump the water long distances. Private water wells typically have less of an impact on the environment overall than other water sources. For example, think how many fewer plastic water bottles will end up in landfills. This can be important for people who want to reduce their carbon footprint and live a more sustainable lifestyle
Increase Property Value
Residential water well drilling can also increase the value of your property. Having your own well can be seen as a luxury by potential buyers, and make your home more attractive, especially if they are health-conscious and concerned about the environment. A private well can also give you a negotiating advantage as it provides potential buyers with an incentive to purchase your home.
