While wells are less commonly seen today, they are still around. Extremely durable and consistent, wells are a great alternative to water lines in your home. Here are some benefits of having your own water well on your property.
No More Water Bills
Since you are supplying your own water, the city cannot tax you anymore for using its water. This can save you hundreds of dollars every year and you can use as much water as you want. The only downside is that your well water will not be filtered and treated like the city does, so you will have to buy equipment that does that.
Since the water is coming from a specific spot on your property, it will taste different due to the things around it that could affect it, like types of soil or foliage. Also setting the level of filtration or even what type of filter you get that removes certain chemicals can affect taste. If don’t get a water softener, your water will have minerals in it that will affect the taste as well.
Citizens often take city water for granted. They find this out when a water main gets busted or the water treatment facility has to issue a public health warning. With your own well, you get water when you want it, not having to worry about outside interruptions.
