Boreholes are used in agriculture, industry, construction and for domestic use, even water companies use them for water supply.
The benefits are self-sufficiency and a significantly reduced or non-existent water bill.
Up to 20,000 litres can be abstracted a day without a licence, and this can contribute to a saving of around £14,000 p.a. with a return on original investment in 1 to 2 years.
This involves the collection and distribution of rainwater for toilet flushing, irrigation and vehicle washing. Grey water initiatives take water from baths, wash basins, washing machines and dishwashers and use for toilet flushing.
Reinstatement of Old Wells and Springs
We have been working with customers in the South West to help them reinstate old wells or springs, bringing them back into use.
This means that thousands of extra litres of water will be available when supplies are interrupted, with a pump used to extract the water so it can be stored in tanks until it is required.
This offers them sustainability, a significant reduction in their water bills and a core part of their contingency planning.
