For centuries water has been drawn from the ground by simply digging a hole deep enough to penetrate the water table, this table lies at various depths depending on soil type and rock structure. In some areas water can be found as shallow as 1.5 meters. The water table is supplied from rainfall and any other water laying on the earth’s surface. As water falls to or runs over the ground it is soaked up like a sponge by the soil. This soil is called the permeable layer. As we dig deeper into the ground harder compounds can be found which are referred to as the non permeable layer, the effect of the water reaching this non permeable layer is for it to be halted in its never ending attempt to go deeper as the gravity of the earth pulls it towards its center. Imagine a sponge in a container, as you pour water onto the sponge it will run into and out of it as the container fills . This is the effect of the rainfall, as the container fills up so does the sponge, the container is acting as a non permeable layer stopping the water from running away and thus saturating the sponge or permeable layer with water. We call this area of water an Aquifer and by tapping into the Aquifer we can pump the water to the surface, then connect it to a tap or an irrigation system enabling you to water your plants and lawns.as and when you like.
