|In response to Re: Well Cost|
: It looks like I'll have to drill about 250-300' for a well at my new house. Is this deep or is it about average?
These days that is a reasonable well depth.
: Also, about how much will this cost? I know only a ballpark figure could be given, but that's all I need to come up with an overall budget to construct the house.
A friend in the North Carolina mountains was just quoted $3000, but this may not mean anything in your area.
: I have a 1 acre foot share and the well can supply up to 4000 gallons per min... (That should be enough...) How do I keep the wellhead from freezing?
Depends. Am guessing you aren't in Miami?
: About how much will a pressure tank system cost?
The bigger the tank, the less often your pump motor has to strain to life(Make sure your pump is adequately sized or plan on replacing regularly!).
Any way you can pump to cistern above your house and have gravity water when the power goes out, the pump dies, or the backhoe operator working on the drainage ditch cuts the line?
Good health, Weogo
