When it's time to really assess your land and get started, you will need a water well installation contractor you can trust to handle the work. A water well contractor may charge you $5000 or more to install a quality well. You will make this money back and then some in terms of increasing your property values and saving money on water for the long-term. Consult a well drilling association to make sure you are choosing a water well installation contractor that is certified. Get as many estimates on the drilling and installation of the well as you can before signing a contract.

#3: Keep the water well in proper condition

If your water well is out of order, it can quickly become a pest infested eyesore. To prevent this, always keep it running properly and hire a well contractor that can make sure this. They will be able to provide annual inspections, water treatments and will test every component of the water well to keep it in tiptop shape. A well water pump repair is very common during the course of ownership, and might cost between $430 and $865.

With these three guidelines, you will be a proud owner of a highly functioning water well.
