Like most people in this area, I have well water. Yesterday morning, the pump, two hundred feet below the surface, decided to retire. After a couple of phone calls, a plumber came and took a look. Sure enough, the pump was dead. His crew will be arriving later to replace the pump and take almost $6,000 from me.
When I think of the cameras I could have bought...
Way too much. The average cost to replace a well pump is $1,550, or between $836 and $2,266, according to more than 600 surveyed homeowners. Shallow pumps cost around $1,000 to install, while deep-well projects cost roughly $2,000. Most well pump units retail for between $100 and $1,200.
Make sure the guy kisses you when he's finished because he is sure you know whatin you.
