Description: Learn why using a scientific water finding service helps you find water for your well and save money on drilling.
Moving to the country is a great goal for a lot of people; you get out of the cramped spaces of the city, into fresh air, and have more freedom to enjoy your property and life. If you have decided that the method by which you move to the country is to buy up an empty property and develop it into a homestead from a blank canvas, then there are a lot of aspects you need to think about. You need to decide how you’ll get power (off the grid, on the grid, mixed), whether you’ll grow some of your own food, and most importantly of all, how you are going to get a good source of water.
Water is essential for life, and when you move to the country you are unlikely to be able to hook up to a municipal water source anymore, which means you need to consider finding water on your rural property that is going to be reliable and safe for your new home. In addition to being able to actually find a good source of water, using a water finding company will help you save money on well drilling in the long run.
Methods of Finding Water
There are several methods of finding water on a property, some that work really well, and some that are just superstition. The most known superstition method of water finding is dowsing; a method that uses a forked stick to locate underground water. Never use dowsing if you are looking for a reliable source of water as dowsing is no better than just digging randomly and hoping.
If you are looking for a very reliable method of finding water, then you should look more to scientific approaches. One such way is using seismic waves in order to survey deep under the ground, and when analyzed lets you know how much water is down there, how deep, and how stable it will be. A full water survey can help you find the right spot on your property for a well that is safe, and even drought resistant
Reasons for Using Professional Water Finding Services
If you decide to not get a water survey and just call out a well drilling team, they will still drill since you are paying them, but there is no guarantee they’ll actually find water where you tell them to drill. With well drilling costing by the foot, you can save a lot of money with an initial water survey that will let you know the best location on the property for drilling a well, whether it is the largest underground water source, or sufficient for your needs and is relatively close to the surface. Don’t get caught having to pay out of pocket for three or four well drillings, when only one would have been enough.
If you are considering moving to the countryside for your next home and need a new well dug, contact American Water Surveyors today to book a scientific water finding survey.
