With the well already drilled? No big deal, really--as long as you're working with someone who's done it before. Unless it's really deep and needs specialized equipment to handle the brute-force part.I'm wondering how complicated it is to put the pump in myself. Thats probably my big question.
Clarify costs and check if the driller is charging for dry holes. Some of the companies will charge if they come up dry. Around my parts it's $15/ft dry and 25 wet.Anyone have much experience with wells? I have a few questions and just want some general knowledge.
The way the cable rig works is really old school. It has a heavy weight With a mid evil looking weapon on the end. The truck provides about 2-3 ft of stroke to the weight and bit. The operator pays out just enough cable so the bit slaps the bottom of the hole, pulverizing the rock into dust.Clarify costs and check if the driller is charging for dry holes.

Also I understand the old timers used a cable rig with a weight that hammered the pipe. Old and slow the weight was lifted with a cable then dropped on the pipe. Many wells drilled this way. The newer rigs use a pneumatic system?. I found an old timer with a cable rig. His costs were around $5 less.
Oh, i see. The price isnt too bad then. Last i knew the grid here was charging $1k per pole but this was years ago so it is probably more now. Even at that price it would be at least $12k since here they put the poles in around 100'-150' apart.Woodchuck, we're 1200' from the grid. 5 poles and quite possibly all lava:sad:
