One of the best solutions to a fallen water system is the hand drilled well. This process is surprisingly simple when you compare it to the freedom that you get from having access to your own water. If the water treatment plant is interrupted due to disaster you are suddenly beholden to whatever water you have stored. Beyond that you are desperate for water.
In this podcast you are going to hear from a man who is using pressurized air to drill wells. Its a very interesting interview. You will find that there are more options out there to getting your hands on that pristine underground water source. Do you have a well at home? What things do you use your well for on the homestead.
