An irrigation well is similar to a well for the interior of your home, except it’s connected to an outdoor faucet and/or sprinkler system. Installing an irrigation well still requires drilling a water well, which can be a considerable upfront expense. Still, because you don’t use water from a municipal system, you won’t have a monthly water bill. If you’ve thought about installing an irrigation well, here’s some information you should know.
Common Questions About Irrigation Wells
How much do they cost to install?
An irrigation well installation includes drilling the water well, along with the necessary piping. The cost will vary depending on the size of the property, the location and individual property needs.
Will the water be full of chemicals?
City water is usually sanitized with fluoride, which in small doses, can help whiten our teeth. Well water, however, doesn’t contain chlorine or any chemicals that could damage your plants. If you’re installing on an organic farm, an irrigation well is a safe way to water crops without the fear of contamination.
Are irrigation wells environmentally friendly?
Since there are no chemicals added to the water, it returns to the ground safe and clean. Because of this, the system recycles water.
Will drilling a well increase/decrease my property’s value?
When you decide to install an irrigation system, you’ll get a return on your investment. The system will increase your property’s value. Realtors will highlight the benefits of your irrigation system when you sell your home, and it will be attractive to buyers who are looking to garden or want to spend time watering their grass and other ornamental plantings.
