Water Supply Boreholes: Sustainable and Practical
Many golf courses opt for a water supply borehole to feed their irrigation systems, as they offer more long-term benefits than taking a water supply directly from the mains.
Boreholes allow a golf course to extract water directly from the ground, which is a sustainable water source that can be used time and time again. Water supply boreholes require minimum maintenance and can often exceed the required amount of water to satisfy the Greenkeepers needs.
As well as being self-sufficient and practical, many golf courses can achieve long-term financial benefits over using a mains supply, due to the high volume of water required to maintain the courses - the more you use, the more you pay. This continues to be more so year on year with mains water prices increasing. With a borehole, you are not charged for your water usage, you incur only the running costs of the pumps and alarms.
So, if you are paying more than a few thousand per year for water, it may be useful to get a consultation for your very own water supply borehole.
