    Any Ideas how much a New Well & Pump Should cost ?

    It's been over two years now since I orig. posted about my 2" Well with a packer on it started to pump sand. I have since had to replace the pumps motor and Impala due to the sand destroying it. And now the sand is coming out in larger quantities, so we are now at the cross roads of saying we got great water from that small 2" well with Galv. caseing at 100' and my drop pipe at 103' and I only have a 1 1/2 hp above ground pump we used it since 1989 with GREAT water Quality etc. so we got our moneys worth I believe.
    What I'd like to know is if anyone could give me a Ballpark figure on a new 4" well and a proper sized pump etc. to be installed. We live in Hudson, Florida luckily no rock was found when the last one was drilled "the 2" well" just passed through some clay otherwise all was pure white clean super fine sand... Anyone's input would be of great help to us, I know it is just a matter of time before I loose my 2" well all the way. Thanks in Advance, Rich....

    Also is it possible for a person to put in a 4" caseing if it is only in sand?

    If so how would one go about this....

    I wouldn't try the 4" well myself Rich. That should be left to a large drilling rig with an experienced driller attached.

    I don't know Hudson's geology, but if you had encountered rock you would have been better off. Here in the Tampa area, all the "real" wells (wells deeper than 20' or so) are made in limerock and for the most part don't pump sand. The ones that do pump sand are usually doing so because of the driller cheaping out on the amount of casing he installs.

    I wish I knew someone in your area, I would give you their number.

    Here as far as pricing goes, for a 150' well with pump, tank etc. Your looking at between 5 and 6 thousand. Look in your phone book for Forqueen (spelling may be wrong) Well Drilling. He has been around for a long time, has a good reputation. I just don't know if he goes that far. He is in Pinellas county I think. You can also call David Cannon Well Drilling. We use him all the time, he does travel all around and may go to Hudson. He is in Parrish, Fl. just below me. Phone number is: 941-776-1471

    Yes, they use PVC if they use a Rotary drill rig. If not, it should be galvanized. Don't let anyone talk you into 4" PVC, go with 5" or larger.
