Dowsing is a practice that consists in the attempt to identify water or metal veins in the subsoil using a wooden instrument, generally in the shape of a “Y”, which would be used as an amplifier of the body movements generated by supposed radiations emitted by the sought object .

If you are looking for water in your area and finding water is a big problem for you, we at Hydrohunter have an electronic tool that allows us to consider ourselves a type of flying electronic diviner. Our successes are very high in percentage, compared to other indirect research tools. We are keen that every person who looks for water in his land and who relies on our tools, keep in mind that: if there is water, we have a high probability of finding it, but WE CANNOT CREATE IT.


Precipitation data has been recorded in our peninsula since 1800 and the data allow us to understand the trend of the climate. According to the researchers taking into consideration the 220 years, there have never been worse periods and in particular 2017 from the point of view of rain. Bearing this data in mind, it is clear that the rains were scarce in all seasons of the year. And in particular in spring, when they fell by 48% compared to the reference period, and in summer, with a peak of -61%.

The rainfall anomaly of 2017, which will certainly be remembered for the heavy drought that characterized it. Starting from December 2016, months have almost always been loss-making: except for the months of January, September and November, all the others have registered a negative sign, almost always with a deficit of over 30% and, in six months, by more than 50%. On balance, the annual accumulations at the end of 2017 were found to be more than 30% lower than the average of the reference period 1971-2000, labeling this year as the driest since 1800 to date. To find a similar year, we must go back to 1945, even in that year there were 9 months out of 12 heavily below average, the deficit was -29%, therefore slightly lower.

Building an artesian well can be the ideal remedy to ensure the supply of your water needs for isolated houses or where the water network has deficiencies and malfunctions. So if you don’t have enough water for your home or production needs, it’s interesting to know how much it costs to make an artesian well, we hope to be useful to you.


The challenges that await on the front of irrigation and reclamation are many and the situation on the ground is difficult. More and more intense meteorological phenomena , concentrated in a few hours and on limited areas, with floods and damage even in areas that are not excessively man-made, reveals the need to consider their effects in planning and programming territorial policies in the coming years. Almost the entire national territory is periodically affected by drought , in recent years it has been the target of floods and torrential rain , and the water that arrives in the territory with these exceptional events it is not reused for irrigation purposes, due to the lack of ad hoc infrastructures.

Irrigating costs a lot and in a different way depending on the place: to irrigate a hectare of land cultivated with table grapes in Palagianello, Ginosa or Castellaneta – under the responsibility of the Stornara and Tara Reclamation Consortium – costs 410 euros per hour dispensing every 8 days for 8 hours, against 1,800 euros in Conversano – to be paid to Arif – for 8 hours and to irrigate once a week for about 14 weeks from June to mid-September. Moreover, the cost of water has never been renegotiated with the Basilicata Region and above all with the Apulian Aqueduct which pays the water 4 cents per cubic meter and sells it to the reclamation consortia, after purification, at 80 cents per cubic meter (2016 data). The owner of a farm cannot be subject to the schedules and flow rates that the agricultural consortium decides, and see his crop ruined, which is why one or more wells can be of help in his business. An electronic dowser with an electromagnetic probe can help you solve this problem.
