I'm not sure if this is the right place, but has anyone had a well drilled recently. We just got an estimate, and it seems kind of high. I just wanted to compare prices so we could judge the value. Any input is appreciated. Here is our estimate: Drilling $15.00 per foot Our total: $2385 6" casing $17.50 per foot total: $2730 5 bags of Bentonite seal total: $ 80 Drive shoe, well cap, chlorination bacteria and nitrate water samples total $ 275 DNR well permit fee $ 75 3' well screen $775 Total Total $6320 Not included in the price is market increase in steel, access, egress, site restoration and erosion control. If the site needs a cement grout seal, another $350 plus $18 per bag charge. We have never drilled a well before, and it's been years since anyone we know has had one drilled. Let me know what ya think.
