Water Well Drilling in Belgrade FAQ

How much does it cost to have a well dug?

Costs for digging a well vary. The average cost to drill a new well is approximately $5,500 with an average well depth of 150 feet. A private well costs more initially, but over time costs of maintenance are cheaper saving up to $500 per year, and after it is installed you'll only pay for the electrical costs for the well pump. If you're digging to install a septic system, the project can cost from $2,600 to $8,000 with the average costing $5,000. All costs associated with digging and installing a septic system run around $5,000 to $23,000. However, if you're going for an agricultural water well, it tends to be more expensive than other types of wells. For residential irrigation wells, expect to pay anywhere from $5,000 to $12,000 and commercial irrigation wells can run upwards of $75,000.

What are some of the installation costs for water well digging?

In general, residential water well drilling is usually less expensive than commercial well digging jobs. To get an accurate and current price, you can leave your contact info above to request a quote or search for water well service in Belgrade, ME to get a rough idea about current prices in your specific geographical location. The type of well that you desire and its expected use can alter the estimated prices. An artesian well uses an aquifer instead of the more expensive-over-time electric pump other well types will require. The initial costs of an artesian well are higher, expect to pay $4,000 to $10,000, but the lowered maintenance and operational costs surpass this expense later. Drilling is more complex for these wells. The sand point well is the least expensive at about $200 to $1,500. This well is less reliable than others, and this well choice should be only used intermittently for best results.

Are there any price factors to consider when digging a well?

Yes, there are. Costs for water well installation vary greatly according to your location. The soil quality of the ground also affects the costs of the project. Lower ground water levels increase the drilling depth and the overall price. Obviously perhaps, deeper well digging will be far more expensive than digging shallow wells. Wells dug close to a home are also cheaper as electrical and water lines will be shorter. Permits are another factor to consider before drilling a well, since they are a must. These range from $5 to $500 depending on county and city location. Multiple permits may apply. You will also need to use a water testing kit to ensure that the water is safe. DIY water testing kits run about $30 to $100 giving instant results. These kits are less reliable than a professional test kit, so keep that in mind.
