What is water divining and can it actually help me find water?

Water divining is a technique that involves using a dowsing rod, pendulum, or other tools to locate water. This practice has been used for centuries, with roots in ancient civilizations such as the Chinese, Egyptians, and Germans. This technique like every other technology or methodology is never 100% accurate but we have helped save clients hundreds, if not thousands in drilling fees by finding the right spot to drill using water divining.

Water divining can be a valuable tool for locating water and crosschecking the driller’s selected drill site before the drilling begins. The basic principle behind water divining is that the dowser holds a dowsing tool and walks over an area where water is suspected to be located. The tool moves or reacts to show that there is a presence of water. The dowser then marks the spot and generally the client will get a professional driller in to drill the spot for water.

There are several theories as to how water divining works. Some believe that the dowser has a heightened sensitivity to changes in the earth’s magnetic field caused by the presence of water. Others believe that the dowser is tapping into a spiritual energy or consciousness that is aware of the location of water. Some also believe that the dowser is simply using their own intuition and subconscious mind to detect water. What’s important is that it’s a proven technique to find water as well as understand the depth to drill, the potential flow rate, and water quality.

There are many different dowsing tools used in water divining, including dowsing rods, pendulums, and L-shaped rods. Each tool has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of tool depends on personal preference, experience, and the type of dowsing being performed. Some dowsers prefer to use simple dowsing rods, while others prefer to use more sophisticated pendulums or L-shaped rods.

Water divining is often used in agriculture and irrigation, as well as for finding water for drinking and other household uses. In many rural areas, water divining is considered a valuable tool for locating water sources.

In conclusion, water divining is a practice that has been used for centuries to locate water. Water divining continues to be a popular practice and is valued by many people as a tool for finding water and water sources.
