water well

well in the gardenThe well has a long history, its origins date back to ancient times, when it was the only solution not only to water but also to have water to drink. The techniques for digging it were naturally primitive, and there were certainly no controls that today it is possible to have but in any case they represented an excellent solution for many populations. With the passage of time the techniques for digging the well have been refined and therefore the well has begun to be a solution increasingly chosen by those who needed above all to irrigate the garden. Today the well is also an excellent solution to fill the pool, obviously after having subjected the water to specific analyzes. Once the well had no electrically operated system but the water was pulled to the surface through a pulley to which a bucket was tied, today the well can also be equipped with a system that uses the current to bring the water to the surface without no effort. The well, however, from an aesthetic point of view, can always be covered externally as it happened for the ‘original’ well to give it a rather characteristic aspect, capable of integrating itself even within the garden itself.

Once the well has been built, it is the customer’s responsibility to contact specialized centers for water control and analysis to verify whether the water could be used, for example, to fill the pool or not.

The law 5.1.94 of 1994 the n. 36 establishes that whoever has a well must have the concession and pay for the water as it is established that all water, except rainwater must be encumbered by a concession.

Before starting work, it is also possible to request a quote to get an idea of ​​the cost of the work. Certainly the use of water from the well would replace drinking water to wash the car, for example, or to connect the garden irrigation system, the advantages are many, and then once performed it is always available for use, but on the other hand, the costs must always be considered.
