How can we benefit from boreholes?

With the increasing cost of water charges, is it no surprise that more and more people are considering alternative sources? One such possibility is how to use water from an underground source (water well) located on their property.

Installing a borehole pump could reduce the cost of your water bill dramatically.

For example, borehole users are permitted to extract up to 20,000 liters of water a day in meter terms that's a tremendous cost of only 20 pounds.

Kinder to our environment

Not only does a borehole provide a natural, sustainable, and 100% renewable source of water In comparison to the mains water supply, extracting water from a well or borehole requires considerably less energy than obtaining fresh, clean drinking water from other sources.

As a result, utilising a borehole is considerably more economical and is also kinder to our environment.

Anyone with an underground source on their premises may install a borehole pump.

One requirement is, if you are considering extracting more than 20 cubic meters or 4,000 gallons of water a day, you will have to obtain an abstraction license from the Environment Agency (EA)

What is a borehole pump?

A borehole pump is a device drilled into the ground to an average depth of approximately 60m to 80m; there is no set answer for how deep a borehole needs to be; it could be to a lesser extent as considerably more. , the borehole should be as deep as is necessary to reach the water-bearing rock (aquifer), depending on your location in the UK and the underlying geology. A borehole pump is then used to draw water to the surface. In addition, a borehole pump can continuously run all the time and can equally be stored in tanks for later use.

Is borehole water safe to drink?

Borehole water is usually safe to drink as it is extracted straight from the ground, making it 100% fresh and natural. However, the Private Water Supplies Regulations recommend that you must have your private water supply checked to ensure it is consistent with drinking water standards; since it is coming straight from the ground, it could have higher levels of iron, magnesium, calcium, or other minerals as well as some bacteria. Most of these are harmless; then again, it could make them ill to vulnerable people like babies, so it is essential to get the water checked before drinking it.
