Financial - Wells cost a lot with no guarantee of any water. When something goes wrong it costs an arm and a leg.
Environmental - Wells lower the water table and use water that should be used for in the house.
Water quality - Ground water can have all kinds of problems that need filtering. Filters cost a lot and are wasteful.
Why buy from us not someone else?
We are not food manufacturers trying to sell off used barrels and totes. We are gardeners that networked with food manufacturers and plumbing suppliers to get the right parts at the right prices for you.
Why not just build my own system?
Some people like making it them self, thats great and why we sell hard to find parts. But if your thinking you will save money doing it all your self stop and do the math. We are buying parts in bulk and that helps offset the labor costs of putting the systems together and testing them.
Can the system be added to my rain barrel?
Yes you pipe the bottom of each barrel/tote together. Water moves to the lowest spot so make sure the tops of all the barrels are level.
Are water systems legal in mass?
The state loves them, it saves on drinking water. Chick here to read what Mass.gov has to say. But check with your town just to make sure they don't have a crazy rule or guidelines.
