    Hello, My name is Mr Mark blue I'm in the process of building my own house in Argyll Scotland . As my house site is off the beaten track I have to bore for water which is costing a fair bit of money which got me thinking if I could some how make this bore hole work for me. I have been told that the water quality in my area is excellent. I have also been told that I will receive a flow rate of 200 gallon per hour. Would this be enough to start up a viable business. Any comments would be appreciated
