How Michael & Son determines your quote
The type of well pump. There are three common types of well pumps: jet pumps, submersible pumps and solar-powered pumps. All three types of pumps will generally work for both shallow and deep wells, but if you have a deeper well, you’ll likely need a larger motor, which will increase your overall cost regardless of the type of pump you choose. One of our plumbers can help you determine the best type of well pump for your home.
The depth of your well. The deeper your well, the more your well pump installation will likely cost. This is because deeper wells typically require larger well pump motors and longer wiring, which cost more. Shallow wells are classified as 25 feet deep or less, whereas deep wells range between 25 and 150 feet. To determine how deep your well is and how the depth will affect the cost of your well pump installation, a licensed plumber can provide you with an estimate. We service wells as deep as 400-600 feet below ground in some areas.
We calculate the number of hours for a job. Sometimes, well pump installations can be complex and time-consuming, like in the case of unusually deep wells. If this is the case, we'll provide you with an upfront estimate and clearly outline the cost of labor.
