With a water crisis to start off 2018 in the Western Cape, the perception of water usage is changing throughout South Africa. People already knew that clean and potable water is a valuable resource, but what they did not realise is how threatened our usable and consumable water sources are. Having a residential borehole at your home that yields usable groundwater, and in some cases even drinkable groundwater, brings many benefits and applications and your personal water borehole can ensure that you will never have a water crisis of your own at home.
When the municipal water supply falters, you can simply use the groundwater from your borehole. If you have a reliable municipal water source, you can use your borehole’s groundwater in areas where you can save money on your municipal bill. Should you be looking for a company that can take care of drilling and installing a brand-new borehole at your home so that you too can enjoy all the benefits of using the water being drawn from your borehole, Domestic Boreholes is where you can find all the solutions you need. Today, we will focus on the benefits and uses of the water that boreholes can yield for your household.
The Benefits of Using Borehole Water
As mentioned before, there is no guarantee that your potential new residential borehole will yield drinkable water. Should it be the case that your groundwater is usable but not potable, outdoor use is where you will reap the benefits. Tasks such as watering the garden, washing the cars, or filling a temporary swimming pool are all candidates for groundwater use, saving you money by not having to use your municipal water for these purposes.
Should your groundwater source supply drinkable water, you can use the water from your borehole in the kitchen and bathroom as well, giving you a comprehensive source for application everywhere in your household. Water being drawn from boreholes would need to be tested on a yearly basis, ensuring that contamination is within set limits and does not exceed specified parameters. Although this might seem like a tedious process, it will give you the peace of mind you need to use your borehole water with confidence.
