Why Buy a Home with a Well or Septic System?
Well water typically costs a lot less than city water, and you won't have to pay any municipal usage fees. You can also receive state and federal tax credit benefits for installing a well.
City water is typically treated with a variety of harsh chemicals, including chlorine and fluoride. Having your own water supply means you know exactly what's in it—and that can really benefit your health.
Both wells and septic systems require less maintenance than their municipal counterparts. Typically, a septic system will only need to be pumped every 3 – 5 years, and you can largely leave wells alone.
Sewer lines can leak and contaminate the ground, but this isn't the case with a septic system. It also uses a natural filtration system, which releases less pollution.
If properly maintained, septic tanks can last for 20 to 40 years, which means you probably won't have to replace it for a long time. This can save you a ton of money in the long run!
