Significant Vastu Tips for Water Wells | Storage Wells | Biogas

Water wells or bore wells are hollow structures inside the ground dug by boring, drilling, or digging to extract drinking or ground water from beneath the ground.

In ancient times, Indian houses used to have water wells. But, due to modernization now, most of the homes ( visit for comprehensive details of house Vastu ) are built without traditional water wells. If residents like to know more about Vastu for water sump, visit this webpage, which discusses about water sump tips and this page also has a lot of information on detailed information on Vastu for water sump, we are regularly updating this page.

Eastern Northeast Borewell

Northeast water wellIn the illustration shown below, the house is located in the Nairuthi corner with a round shape well situated in the Eastern Northeast corner of the boundary wall ( visit to know about the Northeast corner of the home), which usually results in good health, wealth, and good reputation. There is a dotted line running from house to the boundary wall corner, which indicates an area that is not suitable for the positioning of any kind of water well. Instead, The Eastern Northeast is suitable for construction of water wells. In this case, the members in the home experience auspicious results like wealth and good health.

Northern Northeast Borewell

Well at Northeast-NorthAlthough water well, sump, or bore well are appropriate in Northeast Corner, they are not suitable in other directions other than East, North and Northeast. Sometimes, residents construct wells in Southwest, west, south, southeast, or even northwest. These directions are not suitable for construction of water bodies. In case, a home ( touch with this Home Vastu details link) has wells constructed in these directions it is best to get in touch with a Vastu shastra person to get a remedy for the situation. The Northeast well opens a way to flow money into the home.

Auspicious and Inauspicious Well Positions

Water wellsNormally, the water wells are suitable in the Northeast (NE) corner. Life become happy and have peace if they are situated in the NE. For the reader's understanding purpose, we marked the NE area with light blue color. The North and East directions may also suitable for the wells, hence, we marked some area with a green color right mark and red color cross mark, this represents to have a word with one Vastu guru before finalizing the location.

Southwest direction is not at all suitable, hence it is marked with red color. Even the South and West directions are not at all suitable for the wells. If inevitable circumstances, resident's like to arrange the water wells at SW, West and South then have a word with one Vastu consultant, after his personal visit of the land and his guidance only take the decision later.

Is There Any Pooja to Perform to Close the Existing Well?

Dear SIr, there is a dry well in our home. Should we perform any Puja to close the well? - Sandeep - Sarjapur - Karnataka.

>>> According to Vastu, the Pooja ritual is mandatory before digging a bore well in residential houses in India. Water is treated as one of the powerful elements of nature called Panchabuthas and god, which is why you find most of the temples alongside water bodies. Hence, performing a Pooja is necessary before digging water sump. That is why, dry or polluted wells should be closed after performing relevant Puja rituals.

However, the Pooja rituals vary from region to region. For example, the Pooja performed for closing a well in Rajasthan is different from the one performed in South India. The Pooja traditions vary majorly because of local traditions and pundits. However, if you do not find a good pundit or a Vasthu consultant, it is better to offer prayers to favorite god and offer sweets, coconut, flowers, and agarbathis to close the well.

>>> If a well or water sump is to be drilled in the house, Pooja must be performed on the commencement of the excavation and Ganga Puja on water. Water is treated as a agent of God, our tradition is, respecting the Natural forces or Five elements. Almost in some areas water is treated as God, and you may also find that, several temples are constructed only at the side of river shores or full of water areas.

If the well is found to be polluted by dead creatures, the polluted water (as much as possible) should be removed and Puja should be performed to cleanse it according to local traditions.

Please note one point here, if any well is in wrong position say about South, Southwest, West or Brahmasthan near to Southwest if you would like to close it, then first start dig one well in the Northeast or North direction, (Find answer for - Is North Direction Good for Houses? from the given link), East (Can also refer, East Facing House Vastu Techniques), Northeast (Best location) and thereafter start closing the wrong placed well.

Never dig or close a well if there are pregnant women in your home.

Never close a well during commencement of a new construction.

Close wells that are situated in wrong directions and dig a new well as per Vaastu norms.

If there is a well in north direction, it is suggested to close and remove the well altogether before commencing a new construction.

While some wells are auspicious to have at your house, some of them can be dangerous. For example, water wells located in Southwest are normally not good. Experts usually suggest closing the wells first. Although it may be right to some extent, enclosed wells in large house areas should be closed because these kinds of wells can cause bigger troubles. In case, the wells are not in regular use, it is better to close them after performing Pooja rituals. In some areas, wells are widely used. In case the well has sufficient water, it is better to clean and use them.

Before digging a new well, it is important to check the height of the well wall to avoid building it too low that can be dangerous to kids. In ancient days, wells were widely used for daily water requirements, but the modern generations are more habituated to tap water. However, water wells are considered to be good for health because the water is extracted directly from the ground and fresh.

While in some areas this water is used for consumption, in some other areas it is mainly used for washing and cleaning.

This website created to educate the visitors with valuable information about India ancient traditional architectural science. We are always delighted to help you in whichever way possible with valuable and useful content.

Most of the times, people suffer and face troubles with water well’s. For example, water sumps situated in Northeast corner are believed to produce good results, but if the neighbor has the sump situated in Southwest direction the distance makes a difference. The distance should always be more than 2-3 feet between two water bodies in residential houses. In this case, it is better to change the location to North or East. If the distance is 10 feet or more, the water sump can be located in Northeast direction.

Dangerous Open Wells

Southwest WellsSome wells may be dangerous, for example, if the Water well is towards Southwest (For better, understanding, go through this article, Vastu Tips for Southwest Facing Direction), South and West direction they may be dangerous. Many Vastu expert asking residents to close them first, yes, they may be right. In some areas, the House land area is very big, in those areas they have enclosed wells, please close them first, otherwise it will take lives, kids may fall into the wells, be cautious. If you are not using wells, then close them with some proper Puja as given here under, if those wells are not used for consuming water purpose, etc, then close them without any Vastu Pooja Room etc.

Olden Days Water Wells

Washing and CleaningSome areas the wells are well used. If there is sufficient water in those wells, then don't close them. Check the height of the well wall, it is must to observe, if the wall of the well is not certain height then kids may fall down. (Check this link to know about Vastu Tips for Kids) may fall down. In olden days we used these wells for our daily water requirements, new generations may not know about these water wells. Those days we don't have deceases, because of this fresh generated Water from the ground. Good for health. Some areas water is for human consumption and it is said to be drinking water, some areas we never get this drinking water, those water may be used for bath, washing, cleaning the utensils etc.

Model Drawing Water Well

Drinking water and VastuWe get pleasure by seeing this image. This is the only model of well for our regular drinking usage in the olden days. Sometimes we are facing few untold problems with water wells. For example, if we planned to dig a water storage sump at Northeast corner, generally this area selection is appreciated, but if the neighbor has his Southwest Septic tank, then how can dig a water storage sump at Northeast. Here the distance is too important. If there is only 2/3 feet distance, then change your water storage sump from Northeast to North or East directions. If there is a distance of 10 feet then you may continue of digging water well in the Northeast direction. The measurement is the matter here.

What is a Biogas Plant?

Biogas is a mixture of natural gases like carbon dioxide, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. Biogas is produced from various raw materials and methods like horticulture, agro waste, municipal waste like food, plant materials etc.

People usually tend to get confused about the positioning of Rain potholes in houses or biogas plants or water harvesting sumps. All of these have to be either situated on the ground or inside of the ground, which means that the ground has to be dug.

For Rain potholes, Northeast, East, or North directions are considered the most suitable. If the Rain Harvesting water sumps are located in these Directions, the rain water goes to Northeast from Southwest. Remember not to construct rainwater potholes in Southwest, South, and West directions at any cost.

East is the most suitable direction for biogas. North is also a suitable direction for biogas plants. However, southwest, west, and south directions are not suitable for biogas plants. Biogas plants located in this direction may cause negative repercussions for the entire household.

Question from Srikanth

Dear Suresh Ji, we are looking to buy one abandoned home that is in that same position from past 26 years. I just found that the water well is at Southwest. Next to it is one petrol filling station recently constructed towards West direction, let me know is this abandoned home is good to buy?. This property is in Kukatpally in Hyderabad. Currently we are living in Raleigh, NC, USA. We are planning to visit India within coming August. If we buy this home, is it create any problem. 8 years back we married, still we don't have kids, we are seriously looking for kids. Appreciate your reply.

>>> Namaste Srikanth Ji, there is some sort of relation in regards with home and child birth. When you are visiting India then verify that home with one expert, he will guide you further steps, thereafter take the next decision, until that don't hurry in buying that home on your relations name. If Vaasthu is bad then only the home may become abandoned. Normally, few, times the West direction, filling station may not be helpful.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA

"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as Vastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vastu and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA

I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
