On the whole borehole water is safe to drink; YES IT IS, however, it could possibly contain dissolved minerals or contamination. If there are concerns over the waters fitness use we can have the water tested by an accredited laboratory that will give a detailed report of the water. It is then possible to correct any problems with filtration etc.
To ensure the water maintains satisfactory quality through the long distance pipe work, mains water contains chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals; your private borehole water supply, maybe with the help of simple filtration system has no requirement for any chemicals and will provide pure drinking/Potable water of the very highest quality.
This will depend on your water usage, if you are a large water user, like a poultry or dairy farm for example, the savings can be huge compared with metered mains water, some large dairy farms have reportedly returned their investment in under 9 months! The remaining water is then very nearly free! Smaller users may take longer to recoup their costs but the other benefits by far outweigh the amount of time to repay! A borehole can also be very cost effective if you are having trouble with your mains water supply or trouble getting a mains water supply, some connections to the mains can cost thousands to put in and involve laying yards and yards of pipes.
One water well or borehole can supply more than one property, you may wish to club together with a neighbor to enable one well to supply several houses and share the installation costs. Some new housing developments are installing a borehole between many houses; this is an added benefit to new owners.
There are many ways a borehole water supply can work with a new development. Irock works with governments as well as property developers and house builders to install private well water supplies to individual houses, small property developments, and major residential and commercial property schemes; by pluming several properties into one borehole you can ensure substantial savings on expenditure and the houses can be marketed with the asset of a free private water supply included with the property.
