I think 7500 is a great price. It cost me 10,000 to go to 425 feet in Davidsonville around 2003. That was for drilling, pump, wiring (needed a 240v pump) and the air tank.

Somerset well drilling. They do all my work. I dont know all the specifics but the cost is reasonable to slightly high depending on the specifics.

Thanks all, I spoke to Somerset last night, they are going to check it out today. Original complaint was rust in the hot water heater, but on follow up 1st plumber said problem was in the well and 1600. Would fix it. At 5:15 after his uncle the well driller had been there an hour it needed a new well for 7500. It's an 80 foot well. Somerset said if it was bad, all in it would be 5200. Big difference for sure.

You don't need a well unless it went dry. Somerset is honest so that's a good thing.

So, your hot water heater needs to be drained an flushed. Then the rod will need to be replaced. Do you have a water treatment system? If so I bet it's time to replace the resin bed.

Good luck!

Won't go over 100' in the OP's area.

New well

I agree, got to figure 10k for the job. Had exact same job done here in Talbot, last year for$ 8500. The well is 385 feet deep. Great water, love it. Should have done it a few years back, had iron and stuff coming in the pipes. Lasted since 1957! Good luck!

I am in AA County and my well pump is 38' below ground. My neighbor was told any new wells must go 400'.

Heard the same. I'm about 120 feet deep and start 90 feet above sea level.

Ive been told that the deeper wells have less radium, but the water has more iron, sulfur, and is more acidic.
