Commonly Asked Questions

How Much is it going to cost to drill my Well?

Our prices for water well drilling are done on a per foot base. The cost will be broken down for the drilling plus the casing (liner). The casing needed will depend upon the formation that is encountered. If the hole stays open (solid rock), we can lower a PVC liner down the well; if the hole will not stay open (loose gravel), we will need to pound the steel liner down. In some locations, we will need to use a combination of both the PVC and steel liner to case the well.

How Deep do you need to Drill?

The Colorado Division of Water Resources has a website that you can use to see how deep the neighboring wells needed to go to offer some guidance but no definite assurance. Once on the site you will be searching for Well Permit Search OR Just call and we will be more than happy to give you the Average Depth in your Subdivision or Area.

How long does it take?

Obtaining the permit from the State will take the most time. After the permit is issued, then we can get started on drilling your well. The drilling & casing only takes a couple of days.

Does your price include the Pump?

We do not know the depth of the well till its Drilled; therefore it is just for the Drilling and Casing. When the well completed, we will provide you with an estimate to install your pumping system that will best suit your needs.

What is the quantity of Water?

Water is located in cracks or fractures created over the years, because of this; it makes the yield variable. The typical Water Yield is 1 – 15 gallons per minute in our area.


  • Surface Casing: The Top 40’ of 7” surface steel casing that will extend at least 12” above ground level.
  • Grout: Mixture of cement and water that is poured on the outside of the surface casing from approximately 10’ to 40’.
  • Well Cap: Seal placed on surface casing to keep contaminants out of the well.
It is estimated that each person uses about 80-100 gallons of water each day.
