If you’re looking for ways to save money on the high cost of city water, an irrigation well could be the answer. Below are three different situations in which an irrigation well is the smartest choice for your home and your wallet.
Savings for Beachside Communities
In southeastern North Carolina, many people enjoy beautiful houses on the coast. While the benefits of living near the ocean are plentiful—surf, sand, and sun, to name just a few—the wind and sandy soil can dry out your land, turning your lawn brown and making your shrubs and gardens wither. It requires a lot of water to offset this, which can add up quickly—unless you have an irrigation well.
An irrigation well, while more expensive upfront, will usually pay for itself within three years. And the lower water bill you enjoy each month will make the investment worth it! Go ahead, turn on the sprinkler and enjoy a lush, green lawn—you’ve earned it.
Savings for Swimming Pool Owners
A swimming pool in your backyard is the ultimate luxury. No battling for parking spots at the beach, clean and comfortable bathrooms a few feet away, all the snacks and drinks you could want, and endless pool parties all summer long. The only downside of owning a pool? Filling it every year. The average in-ground backyard pool holds between 18,000 and 20,000 gallons of water, and a professional pool water delivery service will cost around $400.
A great way to save money on refilling your swimming pool is using well water. This low-cost option provides clean, all-natural water for your pool every single year at no extra cost. If you own a swimming pool, it’s an option you should definitely consider!
Savings for Large and Small Scale Farms
An irrigation well is a dependable source of water, which is vital to a successful farming operation. Groundwater is the most—nay, the only—truly dependable water source in America.
Irrigation can increase crop yield by 20-65% in an average year depending on what you grow, and it’s incredibly beneficial in times of drought. A good irrigation well can also last for generations, so not only will you reap the rewards of this smart investment, but your children and their children will also sing your praises as they keep their crops healthy and thriving.
