In recent times, an increasing number of Australian businesses have been drilling private boreholes to meet their water supply needs. If you are considering drilling a borehole for commercial use, you might first want to know the benefits that you stand to gain.
Here is a breakdown of some top reasons why having a private borehole is beneficial to your business.
Reliable water supply
Having a private borehole ensures that you have all the water you need for commercial use throughout the year. Unlike municipal water, which is sometimes rationed or may not be sufficient in supply due to the increasing number of homes and businesses being connected to it, water from a private borehole is in ample supply and is only utilised by the borehole owner. Hence, you can use as much water as you need without being limited to what the local council supplies to your commercial property.
No monthly water bills
Virtually every business is constantly looking for ways to cut down on operation costs. Reducing the costs of utilities such as water is a great way to reduce the cost of running a business. By getting your water from a private well, you will be able to eliminate water bills from your list of utility bills you need to pay for at the end of the month.
Once you have drilled a borehole, you will only to periodically test and treat the water to make sure it is suitable for the intended use.
Businesses that rely on municipal water as the sole source of water supply often need to invest in several water storage tanks so they can collect and store water they can use when there is disruption in the supply of municipal water. Water tanks placed above the ground level can take up a lot of space, and in business, it is important that you make the most out of your space. The bigger the size of water tank, the more the amount of space it will take up.
Private boreholes are essentially underground sources of water that are naturally replenished by underground streams of water. Since boreholes are a reliable source of water supply, they reduce the need to invest in many water tanks. This, in turn, leads to space savings on commercial properties.
Now that you've learned about some of the benefits that businesses can gain by drilling a private borehole, you can make a well-informed decision as to whether or not you should go ahead with your plan to drill a commercial borehole.
