How To Build A Well In Project Zomboid

Wells are a useful feature in the game, providing an infinite source of clean water. There are three known wells in the game, located at a farm to the northwest of Muldraugh, at the farm directly south of the first well, and at the cabin in the western woods, north of the lumber yard.

Having a well can be very beneficial, as it is the only infinite source of water currently in the game. Other sources, such as a Rain Collector Barrel, are refillable when it rains, but store only a finite amount of water.

Build A Water Well

With the More Builds Mod installed, players can even build their own well. To do so, you will need the following materials:

  • 10 Nails
  • 5 Rope
  • 5 Planks
  • 2 Gravel Bags
  • 1 Empty Bucket
  • 1 Hammer
  • 1 Shovel
  • 1 Saw

You will also need to have a Carpentry Level of 7 to be able to build the well.

To begin building the well, find a suitable location outdoors on soft soil. Use the shovel to dig a hole in the ground, then use the empty bucket to fill the hole with water. Next, place the gravel bags in the hole to create a base for the well.

Use the nails, rope, and planks to build a frame for the well. Make sure to use the hammer to secure the nails in place. Once the frame is built, use the saw to cut the planks to the correct size and shape for the well cover. Place the well cover on top of the frame, using the hammer to secure it in place.

Your well is now complete! It has a maximum water capacity of 1200 and will automatically refill with water over time, especially when it rains. Keep in mind that the well is a finite resource, so it’s important to use water from the well wisely.

In addition to providing an infinite source of clean water, wells also serve as a gathering point for players. They can be a useful place to rest and regroup, and can even serve as a defensive position in the event of an enemy attack.

Overall, having a well is a valuable asset in the game, and building your own with the More Builds Mod can be a fun and rewarding experience. Just be sure to gather the necessary materials and have a high enough Carpentry Level before attempting to build one.
