Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

Having access to pure, safe and great tasting water is something that is sought after by just about everyone. Tap water isn't always acceptable for all people, as many consumers fear it may be contaminated with potential toxins, and bottled water isn't always much better. This has made well water and full-house filtration systems popular alternatives. If you are trying to decide whether to have a well placed on your property or have a water filtration system installed, then here are some things to consider before making a final decision.

The cost of each option

Having a well drilled is going to be much substantially more expensive than a water infiltration system. If you're on a budget, then paying for water well drilling might prove to be nearly impossible.

A well can cost as few as $1500 to as much as $12,000 or even more, depending on how deep the drilling needs to be done in addition to other factors like the size of the well and more. A water filtration system can cost around $15 for a faucet fixture to a maximum of $10,000 if you want a system for the whole house. It can be a relatively inexpensive way to access toxin-free water in your home.

Do you have other water options?

A Journey Through A Junkyard Wonderland

Hey there, I'm Finny Moreau. I like to explore the world of junk cars. If you're anything like me, you regularly pick through junkyards to find rare parts or even whole vehicles. Although I'd love to bring home all of the rare items I find on my searches, I have to be selective due to a lack of storage space. I would also never be able to use many of the items that I find. Instead, I bring home the best of the bunch for use on my own cars. I will use this site to discuss my findings in the junkyard. I will also explore the various uses of junkyard cars and parts. I hope to bring the discussion to dinner tables around the world to inspire others to use the wrecking yard on a regular basis. Welcome and thanks for visiting.
