Why You Should Hire a Water Well Drilling Professional
Water well drilling may be something that doesn’t seem too complicated, but
do-it-yourself water well drilling can quickly take a wrong turn. Raleigh has tightened water-usage rules, increasing the number of permits to drill private wells over the last several years. Private water wells are a good solution for Raleigh residents who are struggling to find enough water, but it’s important to make sure that the water well drilling is done by professionals.
The Cost of Drilling a Well
Private water wells can be costly to drill. Wake County charges a $400 well permit fee for the well only. Additionally, fees associated with water well drilling in Wake County can range on average from $4,000 to $6,000. Some have even had to pay $10,000 for a private well that is deep enough to hit ground water.
DIY Wells Gone Wrong
Most of the new wells in Raleigh are approximately 315 feet deep. Usually dug with a large machine, the well drilling process can be difficult for homeowners with little or no experience. Drilling in the wrong spot can hit and damage pipes that can cause severe flooding, and ruin the water supply for other residents.
Without professional experience, homeowners may install the wrong type of pump, wrong size pump, or install the well piping incorrectly, causing more damage. Hiring a professional water well drilling company can guarantee that you get the job done right the first time, saving you money in the long run.
