We need a water well, got some prices. Just a 150ft water well these guys want 12,000 bucks. And the only guarantee is they will cash your check before the sun goes down. For 12k, seems like you could get at least the grarntee that you would have water. Seems like after these guys drill for 40 yrs, they would know if you have water or not. Anyway, I don't have 12k, we just bought our dream retreat 6 acres in the woods of east Texas. I can do the septic, and drive way, but water well drilling, we must have. I did some checking and Drillcat.com has info on drilling rig rental. 650 per day. I feel better about gambling with 650 bucks instead of 12k. Even if I get a loan, man I will be old before it paid for. The Rigs they offer for rent are larger trailer rigs, not the small toy hydra turds. In most states you can drill your own water well on your land or land you have leased. My brother needs a well, so he is going to lease me his land for 1$ for 30 days, then I can drill him a well, and be legal. I will keep posted, we start this weekend.
