Most people will agree that water is the most important utility for you home or property. Clean, reliable water is critical to healthy living, without a source of potable water no place can be habitable. Some regions do not offer a natural source of clean water, so a water pump will need to installed. Surface water does not always reach the areas where it is needed, so a well is drilled and a water ump or water riser will have to be used to force underground water to the property or home. In the Great Lakes region the most reliable source for clean, reliable water is underground, meaning that most properties will need a well service to come and drill an access point for water utilities.

In accordance with state laws a property will need to be “processed” in order to be considered habitable. One of the main requirements is access to water utilities, such as a well and sewage services. Piping in city or county services can be very expensive, so most home or property owners choose a combination of a well and septic systems. The property owner will need to contact a licensed, and bonded, water utility service and take several steps to make sure the land is actually usable. Water samples need to be taken and a geographic inspection will need to made in order to assess the viability of the land. If water samples show that the local natural water source is too contaminated to use, city or county services will need to be installed, which can cost a pretty penny. If the bedrock in the immediate area is too thick, too dense or made or materials that would be unsafe to drill or penetrate above ground solutions will need to be installed.

The first step to bringing in usable water to your home or property is contacting a local service, such as Aquawell. Your local provider for Water Pumps In Racine will be able to pipe in water utilities, and hopefully offer a service contract for the hardware they install. Your water utility hardware is expected to last several years, and will require regular service. Keep in mind that installation of utilities requires a licensed and bonded professional.
