Benefits of Installing a Residential Water Well

By blog No Comments

Have you been thinking about installing a residential water well on your property? In addition to instant access to naturally filtered water, having a well at your home has several distinct advantages.

Avoid Chemical Exposure

Public water contains chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride, which can be difficult to remove from your water even with a filter system. By contrast, the water from residential wells is free of these substances, so you can avoid absorbing it when you drink, bathe, or cook with it. These chemicals also enter the soil when you garden and landscape with public water, causing damage to the local ecosystem.

Save Money

When you have your own well, you’ll no longer pay for the public water system. After running the numbers, most homeowners find it costs less to install and maintain a well than it does to pay rising municipal water fees. A private well can be especially cost-effective for large families who pay a premium for water usage. You may also be able to qualify for a tax credit toward the cost of installation.

Establish a Reliable Water Supply

Issues with city water can result in low flow, low quality, or even limited water access. With a residential well, you can tap into unlimited groundwater whenever you need a fresh supply. Service interruptions from water main breaks will be a thing of the past.

In addition to these practical benefits, many Maryland residents report improved water taste after installing a well. Those who currently live in an area with hard water find that well water does not contain the minerals that can leave a dull, filmy residue on skin, hair, clothing, and dishes.
