Why should you invest in a borehole?
There are many reasons why residential homeowners choose to invest in borehole drilling on their properties. When you own your water supply, you own your destiny. With a borehole you say goodbye to frustrating water cuts, municipal disruptions and water rationing during times of drought!
With a borehole on your property, you will save money every day. Water independence from municipal sources is another big reason behind boreholes’ popularity in South Africa.
In most areas throughout South Africa, there are no local water authority restrictions on the use of groundwater for domestic use. Some areas underlain by dolomitic lithologies however, do feature restrictions – Irene for example
When you invest in a borehole for your property, it also allows you to enjoy cultivating a beautiful garden for less, and also keep the garden beautifully green and luscious in a Drought.
Boreholes also offer greater water security and add tangible value to your property.
Dawie Malan, head of strategic stakeholder engagement for Absa Home Loans, recently disclosed to radio 702’s The Money Show that, according to global property trends, alternative energy sources and electricity and water self-sufficiency, such as the use of boreholes, were becoming more important factors than pools or staff accommodation.
