Water pumping windmills are a very effective tool for the farmers. In times of drought, there is not a drop of rain for months, and in such times, farmers risk losing their crops and their income. However, even when there’s no rain, farmers can use water pumping mills to save their harvest, provided there is air, which there usually is, because the trees and brushes that block the current of air die or lose their leaves in times of drought.

You see, a windmill is not only used to produce electricity but it is also used to pump water from the underground and use it to water your crops. You can use the movement of the blades to pump the water from very deep underground. Because there’s not really a limit to the “quantity” of wind available, it’s an energy source that you can use for years and years. That’s the reason why you see many water pumping windmills around agricultural centers. Most farmers prefer to have a free source of energy that can back them up in case of a draught or a delay in the raining season.  

Water pumping windmills are specially good for small farms with lots of wind. They generate enough electricity for the whole house, and the needs of the family. They can even be connected to electrical fences and power them at no cost. That way, if an animal comes to the crops, they will get a small electrical shock that won’t hurt it, but will scare it away. That way it’ll keep animals from eating the crops. It can also be used to keep cattle from escaping. In addition, if an area is flooded, they can be used to pump out the water, in order to dry it.

Water pumping windmills can also be used to storage water in water tanks. With global warming and the increase of human populations, some areas have started to suffer lack of water, or water rationing. If a family always keeps several water tanks full of water for emergencies, they won’t suffer as much the next time public water is cut off, or the pressure is so low that the water can’t reach the top of the house.

So, as you can see, there are many advantages to water pumping windmills. While water pumping windmills are unpractical in big cities, if you live in a farm or in an open area with lots of winds, water pumping windmills are a great idea. In addition, you can’t help but relax when you sit out in your porch and watch those water pumping windmills’ blades rotate with the air.
