One of the questions most frequently asked of us is. How much will a private water supply / water borehole cost?
To answer this question, we will have to know more about your intended project and your site.
These are the variable costs, which depend entirely on mother nature and the choices that you make.
The more fixed costs are:-
The cost of the borehole pump, controls, wellhead and custom designed chamber. Together these can add up to around £3000. We use only industry benchmark equipment, e.g. Grundfos borehole pumps. Putting together all of the above it can be seen that a shallow (20m) high quality borehole with few extras will cost £6000 to £7000. A deeper borehole, say around 70m will cost around £14000.
We will only charge you for the actual depth drilled. This means that should the geological survey indicate a required borehole depth of, say, 60m, but we find adequate supplies at 50m, then this depth is what you will be charged for, i.e. your outlay will be reduced.
Having said all of that. Our prices are otherwise fixed. Once we have agreed a price with you, it will not change (unless of course, you change what you want us to do)
As with many other things, there are of course ways of cutting costs (and corners). We choose quality and reliability.
We are able to provide the complete package, i.e. water borehole, external pipework, storage tank, UV and filtration, all from one point of contact.
What are the running costs?
This depends on the equipment configuration that you install and naturally enough, on the amount of water that you use.
The components of the running costs are
