WHAT SAVINGS CAN I EXPECT?
Savings depend on a number of factors primarily whether it is for domestic or commercial use; what your current water bills are and which company you are with, what the initial start up costs are and how quickly they will be recouped.
Domestic users who use a borehole for outdoor use only, can expect to see significant savings from their water bills immediately and will recoup their investment over a few years depending on their usage.
If they choose to include filtration in their borehole and pipe work to provide domestic drinkable water; then they will end up with no ‘water’ bills at all. However, users will still have to pay charges for sewerage to their water company.
For commercial users the current cost of water is approximately £3,500 per million gallons; but by using a borehole they will pay £32.50 per million gallons plus the electricity costs for pumping. Most users can expect savings of up to 80% on commercial water bills.
Our engineers will happily advise you of all the costs and potential savings so you can decide for yourself whether this is a worthwhile investment for your home or company.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
This depends on the how much water you require, whether it is for domestic or commercial use, your geological survey results and the size and dimensions of the water borehole required. For most domestic boreholes a typical cost would be around £3-4,000. For commercial boreholes we would be able to provide you with an estimate once you have provided us with some basic details about your requirements.
WILL MY BOREHOLE NEED A PUMP?
Usually an electric pump will be submersed at the bottom of the hole to pump the water to the surface. Where there are artesian wells at the location no additional pressure is needed to bring the water to the surface.
