Encounter with well water
Many houses have wells in rural areas, and we use well water that we pumped from the wells for daily use.
Well water was also in the rented house where I moved and lived for 5 months. There is well well water in the present house after that.
The well water mentioned here is what we use like an aqueduct by pumping groundwater from a well with an automatic pump.
Because the cost of the well water is only electricity cost of the pump, it is cost performance which is not in urban life so far.
Japan has many disasters. I feel that rural people are superior to urban areas in water supply capacity, such as in times of disasters.
I make full use of this natural blessing and mainly use it for watering in the garden of my house, washing machine · toilet · hot water toilet seat.
Recently there are many washing machines of the water saving model. However, although I was using the drum type washing at the time of condominium life, the laundry immediately smelled, and the water remained in the washing machine and the machine itself became odorless. After all, washing should rinse while injecting a certain amount of water. At that point well water can be fully used without washing water volume.
However, there are Helicobacter pylori etc. in the soil, and in Japan about 50,000 people die from stomach cancer, almost 100% of people are said to have "H. pylori" in the stomach ing.
I do not recommend doing well water directly into drinking water, but we use a reverse osmosis membrane type water purifier to further make use of this grace, making water more safe and making it drinking water.
