Cost Estimate for Digging a Water Well

Water WellWater wells aren’t exactly common knowledge to every homeowner. At C&J Well Company, we understand that, and we are always happy to answer your questions. One of the more common questions we field from folks goes something like this:

“How much does it cost to dig a well?”

It’s a very common question, and also one of the most difficult to answer. That’s because no two wells are ever exactly alike, and many variables factor into the final cost. As a professional well company, C&J has to take many things into consideration before we get to work, such as:

  • The size of your property
  • The location of your property
  • What type of well you want
  • How far down we have to dig
  • Your specific water needs
  • Which pieces of equipment we must use
  • Which components go into your well
  • Costs & labor
  • Licenses & permits
  • Water quality testing

The list goes on and on, so you can see why drilling a quality well is much more than digging a simple hole in the ground! Speaking of holes, we want to caution people from attempting to dig their own water wells just to save money. This is no easy feat by any means, and there are many things that can go dangerously wrong in the process. Some folks may have the tools, the resources and the skills to build a water well on their own, and we commend them for that. But for the vast majority of home and property owners, it is simply smarter – and safer – to hire an expert well company like C&J to do the work for you. Contact us to learn more about the procedures and precautions we follow for all of our professional well services.

With all that said, we realize we still haven’t used a single dollar sign in this whole blog article. Now we can’t provide a laser-accurate estimate, but customers can expect to spend $3,000 or more for a typical residential water well. Irrigation wells can cost $5,000 or more. Well parts and components, along with the connections to your home, may cost up to a couple thousand dollars more. Remember these are just rough estimates; your specific costs could be more or less.

It’s your own water, after all, and you never have to worry about what happens to the city supply. To experience the benefits of private well water for yourself, contact C&J Well Co. today.
