Anyone know what ti takes to install a deep well? I examined the property for the sod, but have no idea how to install or price a deep well...I'm thinkin I should pass on that to a plumber or sprinkler contractor. I believe it will be for sprinkers. Any help would be appreciated. I also calculated 7 paletts of st augustine sod. Any input on how to price this would be good.Thanks bruthas

The well should be left to a well drilling company with the specialized tools and equipment. There are also permits involved for wells. St. Augustine is running aroung $120.00/ pallet installed down here.

Sod must be real cheap in florida. St augustine here would cost me 98 per pallet just to buy. I install for 225 per pallet. I agree let a well company drill the well. I helped my dad shoot down a shallow well once and it was no fun. about 25 feet is as far as you are getting.

will they even allow a well to be drilled in st. pete?
i can get st. aug. for 110. here in tampa.
i usually install the first 2 pallets for 300. then start knocking the price dw. from there.

I have a well at my house for my sprinkler system. Guess I will leave that to the pro's. Thanks for the info.

yes, many shallow wells in the city that are grand fathered in, but not sure if they allow new wells to be drilled ?

Depending on the location of the property you will probably be ok with a shallow well. Still leave that to a professional sprinkler co. much easier to do it that way. Depending on my price per pallet I will install for about 200 each.

No deep wells within 10-12 miles of the Gulf up here in North FL... saltwater intrusion problems. Old ones that they grandfathered in a few years ago are now going away too. You can still get shallow wells but it's gonna cost you big money for the permit and around $400 for the drilling, plus the pump. Irrigation from reclaimed treatment water is the new hot thing here. It's $125 for the meter and about $15-20 a month for water.

Using affluent water to irrigate is a very smart thing to do. This should have started a long time ago.

ok thanks for the info, I'll do the sod and refer the irrigation deal to a sprinkler co. Just need to find a sprinkler company so I can refer those jobs to them in the future. Thanks for the help bruthas.
