The majority of wells drilled in Maine are fractured bedrock wells, meaning the wells are lined with casing to the bedrock. The cost of drilling a new water well is derived from the amount of casing (20 foot minimum per state regulations) to bedrock, the amount of drilling needed to find water, plus the cost of the drive shoe and the well cap. In some areas, where well drilling is more difficult, we use our underreamer system to drill the casing into bedrock, which requires the use of a more expensive drive shoe called a crown. Our per-foot well drilling prices sometimes change due to the fluctuating cost of casing and other materials. Although it is impossible to tell exactly how much a water-well will cost beforehand, most wells including the pump system cost between $6,500 – $8,500.
Pump Systems Installation and Repair Service
We install new pump systems using Franklin pumps and Well-X-Trol tanks, which are covered by a five-year warranty. Flexcon large capacity tanks are available for special applications. Constant pressure systems are available using Grundfos Smart Flo Constant Water Pressure Systems. Goulds and Myers brand pumps are available at customer request. We also provide full repair service for existing pump systems.
A variety of problems can occur down the hole, which can impede the proper operation of your water system. Using our underwater video camera, we accurately identify the cause and depth of any problems down the hole.
Sometimes, problems such as cave-ins, scale or slime buildup take a well out of service. In these cases, the well needs to be cleaned to remove these obstructions. We use our drilling rig to blow out the debris while testing the flow rate to make sure that the well is producing enough water.
We are flexible in tackling any unique challenges you may face with your new or existing water system. Contact us to find out how we can help.
