Water is an essential commodity no matter where you live, and for those who live in the country, developing a homestead water source and keeping it flowing is usually a personal responsibility. While the process may seem daunting at first, the details behind success are simple.
If you can drive a nail into a board, you have the skills to augment your water supply. Drilling companies charge thousands of dollars to tap ground water sources that you can often reach yourself with a few common tools and about two weekends of work.
As a Homesteader you may want to consider drilling your own water well. Water well drilling isn't just for the pros with huge commercial drilling rigs. Digging a water well yourself is both interesting and fun. Many people who own rural and country homes, lake cottages and even suburban homes install their own primary or secondary water-supply systems for backup.
