We bought a small parcel of land a few years ago. It’s a bit challenging, up in a mountain, pretty steep terrain. We’ve been working little by little, building what will become a small mountain cabin. Last year, after contacting maybe a half dozen Private Well Service companies, we couldn’t find anyone who didn’t want $25.50 a foot to drill. (Exaggeration, but, basically nobody wanted to come up in the mountain, it is so rugged.)
Best Well Driller in Henderson County NC, FIVE STARS!
We were so lucky to run across Clyde Sawyer & Son Well Drilling Contractor. They came by personal referral from a friend.
Other wells nearby are 1000+ feet deep or more. We were fearing the worst: Ours would be just as deep. If you go over 800 feet or so, the whole project becomes much more expensive because stronger pipe, bigger pump, thicker wire must be used. It’s said to be about $5000 extra if it goes beyond about 800 feet. Clyde Sawyer & Son, and their team only had to go 600 feet for ours. Wow…
Lots of options, considerations with a new well
The whole team was so helpful, every step of the way. Office folks, drilling crew, and pump crew. Once a well is drilled, most companies send out a different crew at a later time to complete installation, install pipe, electric wire, and pump. They gave us several options to choose from for the pump, and also the well covering. They were also able to help us with questions and considering a backup water cistern. What a great experience.
