8 Benefits of having a Water Borehole

Have you ever thought about getting a water borehole, but don't really know why it would be a good idea? Well, in this article we explain the 8 most common water borehole benefits you can enjoy if you decide to get one. Whether it's on your residential, commercial, industrial or farming property.

Here are the most popular water borehole benefits:

1. It's A Long-term Investment

A water borehole is a long-term investment.

It may seem like a large upfront cost, but a properly constructed water borehole should last you at least ten to fifteen years with proper maintenance and minimal running or ongoing costs during that period. A water borehole is also an asset!

2. Water Boreholes Increases Property Value

Having your own groundwater source means you're better able to take care of your property during times of water shortage, further increasing the property value.

If you have a water borehole, it is not only a selling point in and of itself, but it allows you to maintain your garden even during times of severe water restrictions, meaning you can maintain the appearance of your property and attract more buyers.

3. You Will Save Money In The Long Run

Though the drilling for and installation and proper maintenance of a water borehole may seem like, and probably does represent a large upfront cost, a borehole can actually save you money in the long run.

Not only will you cut down on your use of water from the municipal supply for large volume consumption activities such as topping up your swimming pool, watering the garden and taking on building and renovation projects that require water.

You will also save on your water tariffs, and especially on the fines imposed on overuse of municipal water during drought and times of water restrictions due to water scarcity.

4. They Are Easy To Maintain

If your water borehole has been properly constructed from the get-go, proper borehole maintenance is a breeze.

Contract a well-respected, professional borehole drilling and/or servicing company to maintain your borehole with routine check-ups and any necessary service work and you'll never run into trouble like folks relying on the municipal supply.

5. Borehole Water Has Health Benefits

Borehole water is rich in naturally occurring minerals and hasn't been treated or altered with any man-made chemical additives.

When you drink the water straight from your personal groundwater source, it has been filtered and cleaned for you by mother earth herself, while leaving behind all the good-for-you minerals!

Not only is borehole water better for you from a water-consumption perspective, it is also typically kinder and gentler to skin if you're showering and/or bathing in it.

6. There Will Be Less Strain on Municipal Supply

The lower the demand on the municipal supply, the less likely water restrictions are to be imposed, and the more likely necessary state operations like fire fighters are to have access to adequate water resources for activities like disaster prevention.

You can do your part to decrease the demand on the municipal supply by investigating groundwater sources in your neighbourhood and investing in a personal or commercial water borehole.

7. Enjoy an Uninterrupted Supply

A water borehole represents an uninterrupted supply for clean, fresh water for drinking, washing, and all other household activities.

No burst mains, no unscheduled or unexpected maintenance; just a straightforward, ongoing supply of water.

8. Perfect for Personal and Commercial Use

Boreholes are perfect for both personal and commercial use.

Water boreholes can help reduce the demand placed on the municipal supply by agricultural projects and related farming activities, as well as construction projects.

Borehole water can be used for irrigation, maintaining parks and gardens, and even for watering livestock.


A water borehole can have many long term benefits if it is done the right way, so it's important to get the best people for the job.

You will not only save money in the long run, but will have a healthy supply of water, decrease the strain on local municipalities and increase your property's value.
