A bore is a vital water resource to have. With the current technology available, a drilling company can take just a few days to drill and install a complete bore in your property. Once done, you can enjoy total control over your bore water supply. So how do you tell if you need a bore in your property or not? Read on to find out.
Mains water is too expensive
You can choose to have a bore installed if the mains water in your locality is too expensive for your liking. A typical homestead uses up tens of litres of water daily on drinking, cooking, toilet flushing, laundry cleaning, and gardening, among other needs. You get charged for every drop that you use. This can lead to quite some hefty utility bills at the end of each month. Bore water is a cheaper alternative. With a bore, all you have to pay is the initial installation fee, monthly power costs from the pump, and annual servicing charges. Other than that, you can utilize as much water as you need without incurring consumption-related costs.
Current water supply is too inadequate or inconsistent
You should also consider a bore installation if your current water supply is not meeting your needs. That is, if it is too little or if the supply is too inconsistent. As you well know, mains water and rainwater are prone to these inadequacies. Intermittent water supply can be frustrating as you have no control over when to carry out certain chores. A bore offers peace of mind as you have access to water all the time. You are therefore not restricted as to what you can or cannot do.
You're farming and need lots of water
If your home is located in the rural parts of the country and you want to engage (or already are engaged) in agricultural practices, a bore is an important investment to have. A bore will provide you with as much water as you need, regardless of the weather season. Your crops and livestock will therefore not suffer due to lack of water at any given time. Besides, your costs will go down as you won't be paying for the water. As an added perk, ground water contains natural minerals that are great for the health of your crops and animals.
Think you need a bore? Contact a bore drilling company and ask to have an expert look at your property. They can advise you on where to have the bore located, how much it will cost, and how much water you can expect to get on any given day.
