a-1 arthurs well service water haul system installation

Whether you are already living remotely in Arizona, or are planning to sometime soon, you may be thirsting for knowledge about available water haul services. Hauling water is a common need for homesteaders who live out of reach of municipal water supplies and may or may not have access to a well on their property. Water is a priceless commodity in the desert, and you need to hire a qualified, reliable, and professional water haul system installer like A-1 Arthur’s Well Service to ensure that you and your family always have access to the water you need. But what exactly is “water hauling,” and what can you expect from this type of service?

What Is Water Hauling?

Water hauling is the collection, hauling, and delivery of water to properties not connected to municipal water supplies. Professional water hauling companies use sanitary equipment, trucks outfitted with tanks and hoses, to deliver needed water to customers. Once at the destination, the water can then be pumped into a variety of storage receptacles—wells, cisterns, or tanks.

Even if you are living off-grid and choose water hauling to source your water needs, you will need to have a cistern or water tank installed on your property and distribution means, usually a pump system. A-1 Arthur’s Well Service uses trustworthy Gould’s pumps, a recognized leader in the water technologies market. Homeowners can realistically expect pricing ranging from a couple of thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars depending upon the size and complexity of the system and whether your tank is located underground.

What Are the Components of a Hauled Water System?

Hauled water systems have three basic components: a storage tank, a pump, and a pressure tank. A-1 Arthur’s Well Service offers customers convenient, one-stop service, with qualified, knowledgeable professionals who can handle the installation of these systems as well as refer you to water delivery. While storage tanks can be located either above ground or below ground, in areas where you are likely to experience freezing temperatures, it is highly recommended to insulate your tank and plumbing.

How Much Water Will I Need?

A great question. A variety of factors affect the exact amount of water you will need to have hauled to your site. This can include how many people are living on your property, what the current weather conditions are like, and any other activities you may need water for, like irrigation or livestock. On average, in a typical day, a single individual will consume 80-100 gallons of water per day. The average use for home functions, like dishwashing, laundry, etc. can range somewhere between 250–450 gallons each day. Our service will gladly help you make an accurate assessment of your water needs when you contact us. Most systems will also come equipped with monitors that will indicate when water levels are low, triggering a notification to the supply company that a new delivery may be necessary.

How Much Does Hauled Water Cost?

If you are starting from scratch with water hauling and need to install a storage tank, pump and pressure tank, expect an initial setup cost in the thousands of dollars as previously discussed.
