Q: How much will it cost to drill a well?
A: The cost of a well depends on the size and depth of the well as well as the drilling conditions of the site. In order to provide accurate bids a site visit by an H2O representative is required.
Q: How much water do I need?
A: The average household requires 75 gallons per day per person (not including irrigation). Thus, a family of four requires 300 gallons over 24 hours. Though wells as low as 1/2 gallon a minute can support a household most banks or lending institutions require 5 gallons per minute.
Q: Where should the well be located?
A: The well must be 100 ft. from any drain fields as well as 50 ft. from any septic tanks, as specified by the Montana well drilling guidelines. Also, the well should be kept free from any contamination while still easily accessible in the event maintenance is needed.
Q: Is there a guarantee of water?
A: We do not guarantee water however, dry wells represent less than 2% of all wells drilled.
Q: When do I have to pay for my well?
